SHOCKING REVELATION! See The Current Salary Structure Of Nigerian Police Officers


President Muhammadu Buhari ordered an increase in police wages in November 2018, but the Nigeria Police Service Commission and the Nigeria Police Force leadership have yet to put the new structure in place.

In 2020, the President issued yet another decree on police pay raises, this time in response to one of the EndSARS protesters’ demands.

Buhari also stated in June 2021, during a one- day visit to Lagos State, where he launched different projects, that

he had issued directions for the upward revision of police pay and benefits.

” To strengthen our personnel capacity across the country, we are actively recruiting 10, 000 more police officers. ”

In addition, I’ ve asked the National Salaries, Incomes, and Wages Commission to conduct a salary and benefit review of police officers.

Let me also use this occasion to applaud the force’ s leadership for their efforts and the reforms that are being undertaken in the field of police pensions.

He had stated, ” I’ ve told the Inspector General of Police that he must go to any length to restore the morale of his officers and troops. ”

An examination revealed that the president’ s directive had not been followed, according to the Vanguard. According to the report, some police officers received a wage increase of between N2, 000 and N25, 000 as a result of the compensation review.

A recruit currently earns N10, 115 per month, while a Police Constable II earns N42, 000, a Constable I earns N43, 998, a Corporal earns N45, 737, a Sergeant earns N50, 534; a Sergeant Major earns N63, 992; and an Inspector earns N87, 000 and N130, 171.

On the other hand, a cadet ASP is paid N130, 000 per month; an ASP II is paid N139, 171; an Asst Superintendent of Police I is paid N153, 989; a DSP is paid N168, 820; a Superintendent of Police is paid N179, 813; and a Chief Superintendent of Police is paid N220, 160 each month.

On Tuesday, the Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi, announced that a new salary package for Nigerian police officers and soldiers was in the works.

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Salaries and Wages Commission to work out the package and submit it to the government for consideration, he said during a session on 2022 budget defense with the Joint National Assembly Committee on Police Affairs.

The statement reads, ” In recognition of the police officers’ take- home pay, which necessitated the need to motivate them for better performance, the President directed the Salaries and Wages Commission to devise a new salary package for the Nigerian Police and submit it to the government for consideration. ”

” In accordance with this mandate, the Commission, in conjunction with relevant stakeholders, has submitted a proposal to the government, which is receiving the attention it deserves. ”

A motorist was recently caught on camera seeking and accepting bribes from certain Nigerian police officers along Idiroko Road in Ogun State.

The policeman was seen pocketing an undisclosed sum of money while directing the driver to ” number four” in a video acquired exclusively by SaharaReporters.

” That’ s how they operate; not only the police, but even Nigerian Customs, troops, and others are involved. ” After taking your money, they give you a unique number. A motorist told SaharaReporters that ” we’ re sick and weary of being extorted on a regular basis. ”

” They occasionally confiscate our vehicles arbitrarily and require us to pay large sums of money before they are released. ” Another victim bemoaned, ” Their wahala (trouble) is too much. ”

As a result, he pleaded with the Nigerian government to intercede.
