On Monday, the Federal Government has summoned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris over the protest embarked by police personnel in Maiduguri.
The police personnel was said to have protested over non-payment of their monthly salaries and allowances.
It was reported that the IGP saw at the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Malam Abba Kyari, at the presidential villa, Abuja.
A source at the Presidential Villa, who claimed anonymity stated that the IGP was in the villa to brief the presidency on the police protest.
Reports as it that the Police in a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, dismissed the media report, claiming that the policemen only made inquiries on their allowances and salaries before returning to their duty posts.
According to the statement, the delay in payment is due to the late passage of the appropriation act, adding that with its assent by President Buhari, the issue will soon be addressed.
