Unpaid police allowance: ECOWAS peace keeping officers appeal to FG

SOME police officers who went on the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) peace keeping mission from Nigeria to Guinea Bissau from July 2014 to December 2015 have appealed to the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari, as well as other relevant authorities to pay their outstanding salaries and allowances.

According to their spokesperson, Inspector Ganiyu Adeowu, the third and fourth batches of   contingent were the victims of the unpaid salaries, adding that both batches were being owed 18 months salaries.

“Even police officers that went to Liberia after we have returned from Guinea Bissau have been paid twice. We are now appealing to President Buhari to assist us so that we can leave a meaningful life,” he said.

Inspector Adeowu said that each officer’s money per month was $950 and that 280 officers were involved.
