|Police Salary Stolen From Police Bank by anointedf(m): 11:01am On Oct 05, 2011|
Hopes of scores of policemen in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, to receive their September salaries were dashed this morning as the N11.7 million meant for their salaries has been stolen.
P.M.NEWS investigation this morning revealed that the money was stolen from the Nigerian Police Force Micro Finance Bank situated within Ikeja Police College at GRA.
The money was paid into the bank on Friday yet there was no sign of burglary when it was discovered missing this morning.
When P.M.NEWS visited the bank today at about 10.1 5 a.m., a large number of policemen who stormed the bank were disappointed as they could not collect their salary.
They were directed to go to another branch of the microfinance bank at Obalende for the payment of their salaries.
When P.M.NEWS attempted to speak with the manager at the Microfinance Bank, he declined to comment on the incident.
When contacted on phone, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Samuel Jinadu said he was driving.
At the bank located at the back of the office of the Commandant of the Police College, P.M.NEWS correspondents saw police detectives attached to the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, investigating the incident.
Before the N11.7 million simply grew wings and disappeared between last Friday and yesterday, corruption cases had been reported and investigated at the Police College.
Police sources told P.M.NEWS that officers who attended promotion courses from the rank of Inspector to Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP, were compelled to pay N7,000 each.

Police thief Police money/salary from Police bank.
This is implosion…? They use to terrorize us with 'wetin you carry' and many of us have lost a huge sum to these guys in black. Now the hen has come home to roost. Let the police have dose of their own poison. The only difference between most policemen and the robbers is that while the police is licensed to wear uniforms and carry arms while robbing…. it is up to the personal discretion of the average robber whether to wear police or army uniform for their operations…
