Officers of the Nigeria Police Force, Counter Terrorism Unit, staged a protest to voice out their displeasure over unpaid allowance and refusal to repost them for over seven months.
In a video now viral on the internet, the officers were reportedly deployed to Katsina State in January and the special duty was supposed to last for three months.
A spokesman for the protesters is heard saying, ‘No allowance, no market’. He said that the Deputy Commissioner addressed them but it’s now been seven months and they have not received any allowance, while other policemen in town are collecting theirs.
He also requested to see the governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari; the Commissioner of Police, the Divisional Police Officer, Councilor, as well as the chairman of the local government.
