In a trending video making the rounds on social media, a police officer in, Gujba local government area of Yobe state has cried out like a baby over the incessant attacks on members of the Nigeria Police Force and police formations across the country.
The officer, who appeared in a video, claimed four of his colleagues were killed recently while the property of the surviving officers was burnt.
He stated that since his deployment to Yobe State, he had yet to receive his other allowance for feeding and upkeep apart from his salary.
The Sergeant called on the Nigerian government and other well-meaning Nigerians to look into the affairs of police officers.
He said, “Good morning fellow Nigerians, see what has happened to us in Gujba. In Gujba, there was an attack here on the 17th, four of my colleagues were killed. Those of us that survived, see what we are passing through. See how they burnt our things.
”Since we came for this operation in Yobe State in December, this is June making it seven months, no feeding, no allowance, because of N63, 000 I’m collecting in Nigerian Police as a sergeant, I’m dying in Yobe here. Look at how they burnt our things, look at how many people have died.
“Nigeria, look into our problem. Nigeria look into our problem, we are dying, no helper, what are we serving this country for? Why? Nothing concrete for servicemen. God is there. Thank you.”
