Mass resignation looms in the Nigeria Police Force, following the transfer of police officers to the northern part of the country...“Some of them were weeping and kneeling down that they do not want to work in the north, saying the police high command is sending them to an early grave," said the lawyer.
"Some of them were even lobbying me with money to talk to the Inspector General of Police on their behalf, so it is really a worrisome trend."
Most of the affected police officers, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, described the recent transfer policy as 'wicked' and 'unfair'.
"Most of us that are being transferred to the north are Yoruba, Igbo, Benue and other tribes, while those they are bringing to the west are Hausas. Is it that the Inspector General wants Yoruba policemen to be slaughtered by the Boko haram sect?" Asked a police officer.
"Why can’t the Inspector General allow the northerners to remain in their states since they know the terrain and speak the language fluently?" Another officer added.
"Most of our colleagues who went to the north have been killed. Some officers who will not be transferred back to Lagos have already threatened to resign."~Dailytimes
