Six Police Officers Sacked For ‘Organising’ Strike Action Over Poor Salary

Six officers of the Nigeria Police Force have reportedly been sacked for organising a strike action over poor salary and working environment.

Just last month, some policemen said they would embark on a warning strike to protest poor working conditions, poor salaries, lack of genuine welfare benefits, and outdated weapons.

A protest tagged “We are tired of negligence” was also scheduled to be held at the Eagles Square in Abuja to reiterate their demands to the Nigerian government.

The officers condemned the continuous killing of their colleagues by armed robbers and terrorists, without adequate compensation for their families.

They accused the Nigerian government of lying about the increment of police salary and other promised benefits and demanded improved conditions of service, particularly salary increases and provision of modern weapons as they tackle the security challenges facing the country.

Reacting, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, had warned the officers against such action.

According to Baba, strike action by a lead security agency such as the police was tantamount to mutiny.

Thereafter, a police signal obtained by SaharaReporters showed that some policemen were arrested as leaders of the aggrieved officers.

They were subsequently detained at the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) in Abuja.

Another report exclusively obtained by SaharaReporters on Monday indicated that six of the arrested officers have been dismissed from service.

According to the news outlet, the sacked officers are Inspector Nanlobi Lamak (AP/NO. 245800), Inspector Amos Nagurah (AP/NO. 287568), Sergeant Onoja Onuche (F/NO. 271367), Sergeant Osteku Ademola (F/NO. 508282), PC Ehinghamhen Favour Ebele (F/NO. 525839) and Ubong Inem (NO. 528222).

They were accused of planning, organising, and coordinating industrial action and sacked after an orderly room trial found them guilty.
