Ondo Policemen protest : Nigerian police responds, says officers are being paid

  • Says reports are entirely false

  • reveals officers are being paid

  • Urges members of the public to disregard the reports

The attention of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to a report by one Peter Dada on the online site of punch Newspaper of 28th November 2016, captioned “Breaking: Policemen on rampage in Ondo” protesting non-payment of their last Saturday Governorship election allowance.
2. The Nigeria Police Force wishes to categorically state that the allowances for the officers and men of the Force that participated in the security operations for the election are being paid. The payments were done through the Banks into the accounts numbers submitted by the personnel in compliance with the policy of Federal Government on Treasury Single Account (TSA) to ensure transparency and accountability. The payments commenced few days to the election and most of the personnel confirmed receipt of payment alerts into their accounts before the election.


3. However, those personnel who submitted incomplete accounts details and moribund accounts numbers have been rectified and they have started receiving their money.


4. The report is entirely false and misleading, the members of the public are implored to discountenance and disregard it as no Police man went on rampage or protest on the street in Ondo town over non payment of the election allowance. The Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of Operations for the election is currently in Ondo State and has debriefed the personnel after the election duties. The media as partner with the Nigeria Police Force in crime management are advised to always confirm their story before publication.
