Police Officers Planning Protest And Strike Have Been Sacked

Six of the officers arrested by the Nigerian police authorities over claims that they were behind the March 26, 2020 planned strike action by junior officers have been dismissed from the service.

Some policemen had 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embark on a warning strike to protest poor working conditions; poor salaries, lack of genuine welfare benefits and outdated weapons.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 scheduled to be held at Eagles Square in Abuja; specifically to reiterate their demands to the Nigerian government.

Specifically, 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; as well as the 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 showed that some policemen were arrested as leaders of the aggrieved officers.

Subsequently, they were detained at the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) in Abuja.

However, another signal indicated that six of the arrested officers have been dismissed from service.

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) 
Ubong Inem (NO. 528222).

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

  1. Na wa! How is this different from an authoritarian regime now? You can't protest poor working conditions in a so called democracy? God will help us.

    1. Imagine... they have the time to sack them but won't tend to their demands.. nd u want make police for Nigeria come save 😒 u??

  2. Na now day break for una! Welcome to change!

    1. This was part of the reason for EndSars but they failed to see it. Sadly, The chicken has come home to roost.

  3. The working conditions of lower level police men are quite appalling; just that the terrible behavior some display on the street and in their offices makes it hard to feel empathy for them. You can’t give such people power without expecting it to be misused.

  4. When the mantle of leadership is given to a monkey instead of 🍌

    You know what it is

  5. These sacked officers now be full of anger and bitterness. Next thing na where to unleash and channel that energy to. 🙏 Pray no be to join terrorise the community back? Mbok, God help us.

  6. Sacking them won't solve the problem. The strike go happen one day.

  7. Just look at their names. Give us another reason for sacking them.

  8. They government know that if they police are paid well.. most of them won't risk their life for them any more in d name of guards and political thugs,so the plans is,keep dem poor so we can continue to control them as we want
