They are presently protesting their suspension at the Ministry of Interior, Abuja. Pres. Buhari ordered the suspension of their recruitment process after assuming office last year, when they were almost through with their training exercise and were awaiting deployment.
The 2000 were employed following the tragedy that marred the 2014 recruitment exercise where many candidates died and many more sustained injuries.
Following their petition to the National Assembly, the House of Representative had in April ordered their immediate re-employment but almost two months afterwards, no response from the ministry yet, hence today’s protest.
