Police deny report of alleged strike

The Gombe State Police Command Friday denied a report that its officers and men will embark on a strike action with effect from March 26 (today).

A statement issued by the command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Mahid Abubakar, said the report which was mostly circulated on social media platforms was fake.  

He added that the purported strike is a deliberate and calculated attempt by some unpatriotic individuals to cause disaffection between the police and members of the public.

“In this regard, the Commissioner of Police, Ishola B. Babaita, wishes to implore the good people of Gombe State to disregard this misinformation and to assure them that officers and men of Gombe command are compassionate servants of the citizens and there is no iota of truth on the purported strike action,” he said.

The PPRO added that the Nigeria Police under the leadership of IGP Usman Alkali Baba is well-motivated with ongoing reforms, especially in the areas of payment of approved new salaries effective from January 2022.

ASP Abubakar added that the IGP Alkali also approved the expansion of police medical services to provide better medical services for members under the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

The police spokesman, therefore, urged members of the public in the state to disregard the fake news and go about their lawful businesses without fear of harassment or molestation.
