Police protest over non payment of salaries in Osun

No fewer than 480 Police Constables protested the non-payment of their salaries for 18 months on Wednesday in Osogbo.

The constables marched through strategic locations in the Osun capital, carrying placards with various inscriptions.

Some of the inscriptions read: “Pay our salaries now’’, “Okada riders are sleeping with our wives’’, “Pay us our stipends and allowances’’, among others.

The Constables had not been paid their emoluments since the end of their training in May 2021. With insecurity continuing to ravage the country, many Nigerians see this as one problem too many.
