Popular Nigerian artiste, Burna Boy has taken to Twitter to demand for institutional reform of the Nigerian Police Force and increased salaries for police officers.

Burnaboy calls

According to him, there is no reason why a sergeant in the force should be earning N50,000/N60,000 in a month with no benefits.

Burnaboy calls

The self-acclaimed African Giant asserted that the poor salary will not help the youth’s fight against the brutality of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

He wrote,

“It’s a great morning to demand for institutional reform in Nigeria. No reason why a sergeant on the police force earns 50/60k ($127) a month with no benefits! It doesn’t help our plight. #SARSMUSTEND”

A twitter user with handle @JuanPedro_Marion in response to Burnaboy’s statement, said the low pay is not an excuse for the atrocities they commit, as they are not the only civil servants that are underpaid.

He wrote,

“This really isn’t an excuse for their misbehaviour. Its not just the Nigerian police officers that are underpaid. Doctors are underpaid, teachers are underpaid as well. Everyone is freaking underpaid! Except for the political office holders.”
