Despite police denial, video of police officers protesting in Maiduguri surface online


Earlier today, Nigerian police officers deployed to help fight insurgency in Borno state, took over some streets on Monday morning, in protest of the non-payment of their allowances.We learnt they were being owed six months of allowances. The officers, who barricaded a major highway in the city, shot into the air, causing commotion in the area.

This development also led to the disruption of vehicular movements in the area as most commuters avoided the highway.

The Nigerian police authorities however denied reports that riot policemen protested over the delay in the payment of their special duty allowance in Maiduguri, Borno State, on Monday. This denial was communicated in a statement made by the Spokesman of the Nigerian Police force, acting DCP Jimoh Moshood in Abuja that the policemen simply visited the Borno State Police Command headquarters on enquiry over the delay of their allowance.

The police claim is however contrary to pictures circulating online showing the men holding leaves and firing their weapons in the air. Eventually a video has been released to prove that truly the men of the Nigerian police force in Maiduguri came out to protest over their unpaid allowances.
