Policemen in Lagos, Ogun oppose strike
POLICEMEN in Lagos and Ogun Commands have disconnected themselves from the purported threat of strike action by ‘faceless’ police rank-and-file in the country.
The policemen in the two states, who made the pledge during a weekly lecture held at the Zonal Command Headquarters, Onikan, Lagos, urged the faceless rebels to make known their identity if their actions were in line with their rules of engagement.
According to the spokesman of the Zone, Mr. Gbenga Adeoye, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP): “Members of the Rank and File of the Nigeria Police Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos, have dissociated themselves from the purported plan by some unnamed policemen to embark on a strike action beginning from March 28, 2015.
“In the weekly lecture held today, March 6, 2015 at the Zonal Command Headquarters, members of the Rank and File promised their continuous allegiance to the leadership of the Inspector-General of Police whom they confirmed has been working assiduously for the welfare of all officers of the Nigeria Police. They said that they are aware and appreciative of the efforts of the IGP to ensure payments of all arrears of promotion of officers.
“The police officers were unanimous in their decision to continue performing their duties and will not be found wanting in ensuring a peaceful and credible process in the forthcoming general elections.”
