PDP calls for investigation into policemen’s protest in Borno

<![CDATA[The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for an investigation into the protest by police officers in Borno over an allegation of unpaid allowances.

The party made the call in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, on Monday in Abuja.
It decried the incident, describing it as unfortunate and said that it was not good for the security of the troubled state and others in North-East.
It said that it was disconcerting that policemen, who risked their lives daily at the battle fronts, were denied their allowances for months.
The party noted that without basic needs, policemen were kept forlorn in the face of battle, while their top officers enjoyed the comfort of their huge offices in Abuja.
“The PDP strongly believes that the situation is more than has met the
eyes.
“We, therefore, demand an urgent investigation to get to the root of
this pathetic situation and stressed that findings of such investigations
must be made public.’’
It, however, urged the aggrieved policemen to exercise restraint.
It also charged the police high command to ensure the immediate payment of the officers’ allowances.
