One of the police officers, who asked for anonymity said: “we can no longer tolerate this; for over six months now we have no allowances, any decent accommodation; we sleep on corridors of offices and sometimes in the open air; enough is enough”.

The Commissioner of Police in Borno State, Damian Chukwu, revealed that the unpaid allowances had to do with the delay in signing the 2018 budget.
