‘After 14 years in service, I’m still collecting N64,000’ – Nigerian policeman cries out

A Nigerian police officer, name withheld has cried out over his salary as he revealed that after working for the government serving the country for 14 years, he is only paid N64, 000.

According to the experienced law enforcer, he joined the Nigerian Police force in 2007 and gave birth to his first child in 2017 and now he is a father of four children.

The sergeant said he is not happy about the situation he is now when his wife told him he is going to protest, he could not stop her because she knows the ordeal he is going through.

“I am not happy about the situation of this country. My wife is protesting. I cannot be there but when she told me she wanted to go, I didn’t stop her because the situation affects her.

After 14 years in service, I am still collecting N64,000 per month. Not just me, others in my set too collect the same salary. It doesn’t cover anything. I have four kids, I am paying rent, school fees, feeding my family. We buy our uniform, others can confirm this. My beret is N4,500; the buttons on the shirt is N3,000; the full Khaki is N8,000; you have to buy your rank logo N600; sewing is N3,000; Boot 18,000,”

The police man also revealed that they are usually left to take care of expenses after postings to commands and formations.

“Most times, they tell you to resume within 3 days to 1 week, without accommodation and financial assistance to relocate. The issues are too many. Do you know we go to buy the paper used for complaints at police stations? Paper!” he fumed.
