President MUHAMMADU BUHARI has approved salary increment for men and officers of the Nigeria Police Force, cutting across all ranks of the force.
The Inspector-General of Police, MOHAMMED ADAMU, made the announcement during a visit to the Ogun State Police Command, charging to continue carrying out their duties irrespective of the criticisms against them following the #ENDSARS protest. ADAMU told the officers not to be demoralised by the attacks suffered during the protest, emphasising that no society survives without the police.
A retired police officer, RAPHAEL ORGBE, has hailed the move by the president. However, ORGBE told our correspondent in a telephone that the presidency should also increase funding for training of police officers.
