The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, and two others have been sued by a retired policeman, Uduak Sunday Akpan, for allegedly withholding his salaries and other entitlements.

The suit marked: NICN/ABJ/242/2016, filed for Uduak by his lawyer, John Ainetor, before the National Industrial Court (NIC), Abuja, also listed the Police Service Commission (PSC) and the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) as defendants.

Uduak, who retired as a Superintendent of Police (SP) on January 2, 2015, said he was being owed 13-year salaries and allowances when he was suspended from service.

The claimant said he joined the NPF on January 7, 1980, but was suspended on July 2, 1997, while the payment of his salaries and emoluments was also withheld until he was reinstated in 2010.

Uduak stated that his salaries, allowances and emoluments were not paid to him for the period of his suspension.

He is therefore praying the court to direct the defendants to pay him N5, 505,318.00 being the total amount of his unpaid salaries, allowances and emoluments from July 2, 1997 to December 31, 2009.

The claimant is also seeking an order directing the defendants to pay him N10m as damages for the delay and refusal to pay his salaries, allowances and emoluments from July 2, 1997 to December 31, 2009.
