Speaking at the Police Headquarters in Calabar, during the protest, the spokesperson of the group, SP Iwara Ibiang (retired) described the ordeal of retired officers.

“After 35 years, I was given less than N2.5m as a gratuity with a monthly pension of less than N40,000. ASP is taking home a monthly pay of N22, 000

“After waiting for more than a year to get that meagre pay, we also want to exit from the pension scheme which has cheated the ex-officers on their retirement benefits,” he said.
