According to the online platform, only grade levels 03,04,05,06 and few 07 police officers were paid arrears while those in grade levels 08, 09, 10 and 11 were not paid, saying sources added that Assistant Commissioners of Police up to the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, had however been paid four months arrears.

“They started paying last week but it was stopped on Tuesday, January 4, 2023. Everywhere is quiet and nobody can say this is the cause,” a source had claimed.

The report added that another senior police officer (name withheld) said, “Senior inspectors from Lagos police command are planning to protest at the Lagos command Headquarters on Monday over the unpaid six months arrears.

“Police officers who did not collect their six months arrears are creating WhatsApp groups to gather numbers for the protest on Monday in Lagos.

“It has been two weeks now but no communication from police authorities concerning the arrears, and Mobile Police officers are threatening to protest; that is why the IGP called all the Squadron Commanders for retraining but it was a warning; not training.”
