Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved a 20% salary increase for the police, expected to take off January 2022.

The meeting, which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari during the week also approved review of police duty tour allowance to six per cent; release of N1.2 billion for payment of uninsured benefits; and N1.2 billion for payment of outstanding allowances.

Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, who briefed newsmen after the meeting, said the approval is in line with Buhari’s promise to enhance police personnel pay as demanded by #EndSARS protesters.
