The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba has ordered the dismissal of no fewer than nine policemen over allegations that they were the ones demanding wage increase and planning to lead an industrial action.


Reports say the junior officers wanted to embark on strike due to poor salary, lack of weapons to fight criminals, failure to supply uniforms, delay in promotion and others.


However, in an attempt to stop the strike slated for March 26, the Inspector General reached out to all commands and police formations across the nation, appealing, making promises and assuring his men of improved welfare going forward, but the police authorities still went ahead to arrest nine officers, who have now been dismissed.


Their sack, conveyed through a police message signed by the Commissioner of Police Provost, Force headquarters, revealed that among them are two Inspectors, five Sergeants and two Police Constables.
