The 371,800 figure often quoted as the number of members of the Nigeria Police Force in the country included no fewer than 80,115 ‘ghost officers’, data obtained from the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation by Premium Times have uncovered.

The data revealed that following the full integration of payrolls of the country’s 42 police commands and formations into the federal government Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) last February, staff count stood at only 291,685, with gross salary of about N22.3 billion.

The extra number of officers, which the top hierarchy of the police failed to account for, have for several years been drawing billions in salaries and other benefits.
