Some online media outlets report that the IGP was seen heading towards the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, at the presidential villa, Abuja. An anonymous source at the Presidential villa also disclosed that the IGP was in the villa to brief the presidency on the police protest.
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 late passage of the appropriation act, adding that with its assent by President Buhari, the issue will soon be addressed.
