The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, on Friday said Nigeria’s policemen are the least paid in the world.
The IG made the startling revelation at the opening of the renovated Peacekeeping Hall at the headquarters of the Nigeria Police Force in Abuja.
“This is the only country in the world that police are least paid; this is the only country in the world that the police welfare is least considered.
“Our officers and men have made Nigeria proud at all times and at all places they served and are serving. If we were able to do it outside, why are we failing here? We are not able to do it here because of the lack of equipment,” he said.
