The bank branch manager stated: “I am just from the state Police Headquarters, Yola, where I was informed that the funds meant for payment of the affected policemen are still with the Budget Office of police headquarters in Abuja.
“As soon as the funds are made available to the bank, they will start getting their alert. That is the only information I know about the matter; you can go and verify.”
