Some officers of the Nigerian Police Force have lamented the non-payment of their November salaries.
The officers from different formations and commands across the country said the singular action of non-payment of their November salaries has added to their suffering.
The officers spoke to newsmen on Wednesday under the condition of anonymity.
According to the officers, while other security agents have been paid their November salaries, they have been left hungry due to non-payment of their own.
According to the officers, several attempts made to ensure that they get their salaries have not yielded positive results.
The officers added that a signal from the Police authority did not state when their salaries will be paid.
One of the officers who does not want to be named said, “Help us shout it loud and clear, no November salary for police, the signal above indicated like that.
“All others security agents have been paid. What is our offense, is it a curse to be in Nigeria police?”
Another police officer said, “It is lame excuses, police can not bare the brunt, is not our fault it is leadership failures, for Christ sake all others security agents have been paid since last week, today is 8/12, how do they want us to survive when we are not doing other jobs or to go and commit crimes.”
Another officer who also preferred anonymity for fear of being accused of leaking official secret said, “Economic crunch has crushed most of us due to irrational cost of living, an hungry man is angry man.
“Police is seriously hunting any one that air his views, they say you are leaking official secret, they want you to remain zombie, suffering and smelling, please cover the identity”.
The Police authority, however, attributed the delay in the payment of the Novemeber salary to a delay in the processing of funds from the federal ministry of finance.
A signal issued by Force Headquarters in Abuja and addressed to various commands and formations reads, “Information received from IPPIS unit of OAGF indicates delay in processing of funds from federal ministry of finance for payment of November 2021 salaries which that there will be delay in payment of November 2021 salary.”
