Police officers at Batsari Local Government of Katsina State on Thursday, December 4, protested against their unpaid allowances.

The police officers took to the streets and blocked a major road linking to Batsari market but soldiers who later arrived at the scene removed the barricades.

However, the soldiers action provoked the police officers which caused series of verbal exchange between the soldiers and the police but the district head Batsari Alhaji Tukur Muazu Rumah intervened.

“Yes, I am an eyewitness, they block our way when going for Batsari weekly markets, claiming that we won’t have a business today because the government has not paid them their allowances for six months,” a resident, Muhammad Wada Bakiyawa, said.

According to the state’s police spokesman, Gambo Isah, he said the story was not true. “It’s fake news, disregard it, it’s not true,” according to SaharaReporters.

When asked about the pictures and video of police officers mounting roadblocks and arguing with the army officers, Rumah said that mounting of the roadblock was normal in the area due to high level of banditry in the area.

“If they mount a roadblock, are they not performing their duties?” he said. “That place, do you know it’s a bandit area? The police are working with the military there. There is a special operation ongoing. They are working together.”

  13. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos|

  14. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.|
