Just in: Policemen protest non-payment of election duty allowance

Adamu2

Some policemen from Ekiti State Police Command deployed to Kogi State for the conduct of last month’ s governorship election on Thursday expressed displeasure over alleged refusal of the police authorities to pay their allowances , about one month after .
The policemen , numbering 225 , who alleged that their names were expunged from the list of those due for payment, appealed to the Inspector -General of Police , Mr Mohammed Adamu, to intervene in the matter .
The aggrieved policemen , who spoke on condition of anonymity during a chat with journalists in Ado Ekiti , said, “We want the IGP to investigate this matter , get our allowances for us and mete out proper punishment to whoever is culpable. Those behind this are the ones responsible for the force ’ s bad image . ”
One of them , who spoke on behalf of his colleagues , said, “We risked our lives day and night to ensure adequate security during that volatile election . It is appalling and shocking that the police authorities have refused to pay us , a month after the election , while others have received theirs .

“This has given room for suspicion that the fund must have been embezzled allegedly by some high ranking police officers at the state or zonal level . We appeal to the IGP to investigate the cause of the delay . ”
The police sergeant added , “The Police Commissioner, Mr Asuquo Amba , deployed 300 policemen about 10 days to the election . When there were complaints, another 150 were drafted to Kogi on the order of the CP , five days to the election .
