Osun Covid-19 Centre: Police Clarifies Outcry raised over Allowance
Nigeria Police, Osun State Command says it is yet to pay allowances to his men guarding Ejigbo Isolation Centre.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mrs Yemisi Opalola stated this in a chat with Radio Nigeria Gold FM in Osogbo while reacting to an allegation by the policemen guarding the centre that they were given one thousand naira as the allowance for three days.
The police officers also expressed displeasure that they were not given safety materials like face masks, gloves and sanitizers.
Radio Nigeria correspondent, who was at the centre in Ejigbo reports that Osun State Deputy Governor, Mr Benedict Alabi allayed the fear of the police officers and assured them that government would look into their demands.
Mr Alabi, who said the government was yet to release money for the payment of their allowances, promised that the government would improve their living condition in the centre.
It would be recalled that members of Osun State Task Force on Covid 19 were at the centre yesterday to convey one hundred and ten Ivory Coast returnees, who were tested negative to Coronavarius to their various destinations.
