Uncertainty As Police Authorities Strive To Put An End To The Strike

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is still unsure whether or not its efforts to halt the strike scheduled for Saturday would be heeded by the rank and file. As a result, the office of the Inspector General of Police, Usman Akali Baba, has stepped up efforts to thwart any planned strike by the rank and file, according to the DAILY POST. With less than 24 hours until the statewide protest and strike, the leaders of all police formations around the country have instructed that all employees affiliated to them report to work as early as 8 a.m. on Saturday.

According to reports, any police officer who fails to arrive for duty on Saturday would be viewed as having an ulterior motive in support of the strike call. As a result, Commissioners of Police, DPOs, and other department heads are expected to provide hourly status updates on events in their districts until stand down, while supervisory officers are to keep a register in all command and formation offices.

Furthermore, no officer is permitted to travel without permission, as doing so would result in serious repercussions. According to the DAILY POST, the Inspector General has been lecturing the rank and file in the last several days in an attempt to persuade them to call off the scheduled strike. To avoid a walkout, the junior officers asked that their monthly minimum income be increased to N100,000, as well as the suspension of the contributory pension program.

What the IGP is doing is as follows:

However, the police department has stated that the new compensation structure, including tax exemptions for the rank and file, will be introduced as soon as practicable. Muyiwa Adejobi, the Acting Force Public Relations Officer, announced the distribution of uniforms, supplies, and vehicles on Thursday. The IGP has also directed the collection of names of subordinate officers promoted in 2018 for further promotion, according to the DAILY POST. It was learned that concerns concerning the contributory pension program are already being considered by the National Assembly, and that attempts are being made to renovate barracks. As a result, employees have been informed that a strike in a regimental organization, such as the police, is mutinous and will result in serious repercussions.

Civilians react when the NPF purportedly arrests officers for going on strike:

Meanwhile, an activist, Deji Adeyanju, who had previously vowed to assist the officers if they went on strike, has expressed disappointment that certain men have been arrested by the police authorities on suspicion of being behind the alleged strike. In a similar spirit, the African Action Congress (AAC) has expressed its support for police personnel, appealing for the release of one Inspector Adebimpe Olorundare, who was purportedly detained as one of the industrial action's organizers. Adeyeye Olorunfemi, National Publicity Secretary of the AAC, stated that the officers must not be abandoned after taking such a daring action.

In a statement, Olorunfemi asked people to rally in favor of the officers, pleading with the NPF's leadership to end "the harassment and intimidation of the aggrieved officers." The last time policemen went on strike in Nigeria was in 2002, under the reign of former President Olusegun Obasanjo. Musuliu Smith, the then-Inspector General of Police, was fired as a result of the strike. The same Smith now serves as Chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC).
