GUARDIAN Nigeria reports that about 127 police officers attached to the presidency in Abuja and the South-West are unhappy and grumbling over unpaid allowances.The police officers alleged that their bosses have been denying them more than two years Risk Caution Allowances (RSA) approved by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Those affected are mostly corporals and inspectors. Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), has however denied the alleged debts. He said the police do not owe salaries and allowances as every officer has been paid as at when due.

The Presidency refused to issue a statement when contacted.
