The mobile policemen attached to President Muhammadu Buhari at the villa filed a petition to the President over unpaid Allowances.
The filed petition was titled “President Muhammadu Buhari’s mobile policemen plead over unpaid Risk Caution Allowances from May 2015 to date”.
Nigeria online news media,Sahara Reporters reports said, that 53 have not been paid, while another 127 have not been paid in full,the police who disclosed the petition to online media said that 53 policemen have been languishing in poverty over the past two years with their allowances being withheld.
The petition read as followed;
“About 127 police officers attached to the Presidency have not been paid the balance of their risk caution allowances and about 53 mobile police officers that started working with the present government since 2015 have not been paid anything.
“The 53 policemen since the past two years have been languishing in poverty. Most of these policemen did the data capture and were given the presidential tags. Those behind this delay are some of the superior officers like the Squadron, the Principal Staff Officer and the leader of the Presidential Vehicle Movement.
“The excuse given by the superior officers was that the affected policemen were boys to the former Squadron leader, one SP Mau’su.
“These superiors have started transferring these affected policemen out of the Villa to some states and replacing them with their own boys, who did not suffer and were not there to bear what the policemen went through. We are pleading with our father and President, Muhammadu Buhari, to look into these sufferings from the beginning of his government till date.”
According to presidency said, police authorities should be blamed for the non-payment of the RCA of some of their men posted to the Presidential Villa.
The Police Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh Moshood, however, said all allowances and salaries of policemen attached to any place were being paid regularly, noting that they had yet to get such complaint from the Villa.
The emoluments contain the salaries and allowances. Outside that, there is also insurance coverage provided by the Force and the Federal Government.
This set of people you talk about have not complained to the Force headquarters. We don’t have such complaints. The police are not aware of any risk allowance being owed anyone.
