IGP orders dismissal of nine police officers for spearheading planned strike



he Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali, has approved the dismissal of nine police officers for allegedly spearheading a botched strike action by police operatives in the country.

There were reports last month that police operatives planned to embark on a nationwide strike to protest the poor condition of service in the force.

But the plans were nipped in the bud by the timely intervention of the police hierarchy and the National Assembly which called for the implementation of the police new salary structure.

In a police signal issued on Tuesday by the Commissioner of Police Provost, Force Headquarters, Abuja, the affected officers were dismissed from the service following their orderly room trial for planning and coordinating a strike within the ranks and file of the police.

The dismissed operatives comprised two Inspectors, five Sergeants and two Constables.
