The Mobile Policemen who protested on Monday in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, have called for the immediate sack of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
The policemen, who barricaded the Borno State Police Command headquarters, located on Maiduguri-Kano Expressway, demanded for the payment of their allowances.
They said the allowances had been hanging for six months.
They therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene by sacking Idris.
Some of the policemen who spoke had hoods on.
One of them said: “About 10,000 mobile policemen were deployed to the state from different commands but we have not received our allowances in the past six months.
“We have been serving at the command headquarters since our deployment, but some of us deployed to other locations outside the headquarters were being paid their allowances as and when due.
“We have been facing hardships as a result of the non-payment of the allowances.
“We have made several complaints but nobody listened to us.”
In the video, courtesy of Channels TV, the policemen said they could not longer bear the hardship.
The policemen were not the first to call for the sack of Idris.
Others who have called for the sack of the IGP include Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State and Samuel Ortom of Benue State.
