Security operatives attached to the Presidential Villa, Abuja are currently grumbling over their unpaid allowances.
The situation is said to be so bad that if not addressed, may degenerate into a security breach, Punch reports.
Speaking with the newspaper yesterday, sources in the know said, “loyalty of the security operatives had dropped drastically over the non-payment of their allowance.”
It was learnt that all security agents attached to the Villa during the immediate past administration of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, enjoyed what is called Risk Cautious Allowance. The report claims the allowance was paid until March last year.
The security officers include those of the Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police, Department of State Services, Nigerian Intelligence Agency, Federal Road Safety Commission and Fire Service.
Lamenting over the situation, the source said since the inception of the present administration, they are yet to receive their allowance.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, however refused to comment on the matter, noting that it was an issue of security.
