Singer, Tekno Suggests Increase In Police Salary To N250k
Ace Nigerian singer and songwriter, Augustine, Tekno has suggested that Police salary should be increased to N250k per month.
The talented musician made the suggestion as part of the recent campaign to end Police brutality in Nigeria. He sent out a tweet on his official twitter account in which he suggested that Police salaries should be increased to N250k a month.
The singer believes that police extortion is a result of the stipends they earn and hence, better pay would encourage contentment and a reason to stop extorting civilians.
While some of his fans seem to agree, others think it is a bad idea and that the officers will still harass citizens no matter how much they are paid.
