The Nigerian Police has denied reports it is owing some of its personnel their salaries.
The force was reacting to a report titled, “Nigeria Police Force Personnel Protest Non-payment of Salaries”.
In a statement by its Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, the police insist it is not owing anyone their salaries.
In the statement, Jimoh said it “is not correct and misleading that Police Personnel protested anywhere in the country because of non-payment of salary as reported in some media today 9th October, 2017 or at any other time.
“The Force wishes to categorically state that salaries of Police Personnel across ranks throughout the Thirty Six (36) States and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and all other Police Formations are being paid as at when due and on time,” he added
He however admitted that the force has had challenges with Under-payment, Omission of names on payroll, Non-payment and Over-payment of some Police Personnel, but insisted that the issue is been addressed.
“However, some challenges such as Under-payment, Omission of names on payroll, Non-payment and Over-payment of some Police Personnel experienced in the Eight (8) State Commands that have been enrolled on the platform of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) in the payment of August and September 2017 Salary have been taken up with the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation and its being promptly addressed.
“Few Policemen who went on inquiry to the Mechanized Salary Section (MSS) in Kaduna State Police Command over complaint of Under-payment, Omission of their names on the Salary Payroll as a result of the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) handled by the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, were immediately attended to and addressed by the Officer in Charge of the Mechanized Salary Section (MSS), Kaduna State Command in the early hours of today that their problems have been taken up by the Force Headquarters with the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation. And they left for their duty posts.
“No Policeman protested and none went on rampage as reported in the media in Kaduna State or anywhere else in the Country.” (TV360 Nigeria)
