Isaac Akinmoyede, Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG, in charge of Zone 9 Headquarters, Umuahia, has met with its officers in Ebonyi Command, urging them to avoid any unlawful attitude against the Nigeria Police Force.
Mr Akinmoyede also urged the personnel to sustain their loyalty to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and be committed in discharging their duties.
The AIG gave the advice on Tuesday in Abakaliki during his interaction with the officers in Ebonyi command.
Recall that the Junior Police officers had planned to embark on a warning strike on March 26, to protest against their poor working conditions.
Other issues include poor salaries, lack of genuine welfare benefits and outdated weapons.
On the planned strike action, he maintained that the information about the purported strike was fake and mischievous.
“It is a rumour. But when you hear rumours at times there is need to clear the air and that is what I have come to do.
“The Officers and men have challenges but there are already plans to improve their wellbeing including facility, housing, and salary amongst others.
“There is need to be committed to duties and be loyal to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the police force,” the AIG added.
Aliyu Garba, Commissioner of Police, Ebonyi Command, assured the Inspector-General that the command would not join the bandwagons.
“Ebonyi will not join bandwagons in the name of strike. We will continue to do our best in the discharge of our civil responsibilities,” Mr Garba stated.
He noted that the police personnel in Ebonyi Command were service-oriented stressing there would be no strike in the state
