Nigeria Police has refuted claims that Policemen attached to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, protested over unpaid allowance since 2015, saying none of its personnel is owed salary or allowances.
The refutal which was contained in a statement issued in Abuja today, by the Force spokesman, Jimoh Moshood also denied claims that senior Police Officers in the Villa or anywhere else mismanaged or infringed on payment of allowances meant for the Police Personnel serving in the Villa, describing the entire report as outright falsehood, unfounded, mischievous and fake.
The Spokesman noted that Nigeria Police Force is a disciplined organization and its personnel are not allowed to engage in any act that can subject the Force to public ridicule or embarrassment.
He said all personnel of the Force enjoy insurance and assurance cover provided for, by the Force and the Federal Government, to cater for recognized and some unrecognized risks they are exposed to, while carrying out core Police duties on daily basis.
The Force urged the media to always verify facts before publishing, in order not to cause panic, tension and misinformation in the minds of the Public.
