Police salary structure by rank
This online news outlet understands that the Police salary increase affects all ranks of the force.
Police Inspector General Mohammed Adamu made this known to journalists on Thursday during his visit to the Ogun State Police Command.
Adamu’s visit to Ogun State was part of his efforts to boost the morale of police officers after the attack on them during the recent protest to end SARS.
Addressing the commando officers, Adamu urged them not to be demoralized by the attacks suffered during the protest.
He accused them of not being afraid to fulfill their duties as a result of criticism against them, saying that no society survives without the police.
Adamu revealed that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has taken various steps to reform the Nigerian police.
According to him, “the government has approved an extension of the health plan to retired police personnel. The salary structure of the police has been revised upwards, affecting all ranks ”.
He further added that plans have been finalized for the renovation of police headquarters throughout the country.
In his words, State Police Commissioner Edward Ajogun said that the IGP’s visit would re-awaken the depressed morale of police officers in the state.
Ajogun explained that about seven divisional headquarters were vandalized in the state, while the DCO of the Atan-Ota division, DSP Ogbeche, lost his life.
He added that the police in Ogun have returned to their duty stations, saying that it is their duty to protect lives and property.
