The Nigerian Police Salary Structure: How much is a Nigerian Police Officer Paid

In one of our posts, we wrote on the salary structure of the Nigerian army which exposed how much a Nigerian soldier earns monthly. Today, we shall look at the new Nigerian Police Salary structure to expose how much a Nigerian Police officer earns monthly and yearly. (updated, 2019)nigeria-police-salary

The Nigeria police force duty is to enforce the law in Nigeria and are being paid with tax payers money. As at present, the force has a total number of 371,800 men and able bodied officers scattered among the various departments of the Nigerian Police. Although, the federal government has said in a recent report that it would increase number of the force officers to 650,000.

The Nigeria police was established in 1930 and have 36 commands spread across different states of the nation. The 36 commands are further grouped into 12 different zones which are controlled by 7 different administrative organs with over 2,000 police stations spread all over Nigeria for easy reach. The head of the Police in Nigeria is the Inspector General of Police whose salary is also the highest in the force.

Before we delve into the new Nigerian police salary structure this 2018, lets look at the various arms in the NPF.

Arms of the Nigeria Police

  • Administrative arm
  • Anti-Fraud Section
  • The Central Criminal Registry
  • Special Anti-Robbery Squad
  • X-Squad, General Investigation
  • Special Fraud Unit
  • Legal Section
  • Forensic Science Laboratory
  • Interpol Liaison
  • Homicide
  • Police Mobile Force
  • Anti-Human Trafficking Unit
  • Force Intelligence Bureau
  • DCI Kaduna Annex and Counter Terrorism Unit.

Note that a Nigerian police officer’s salary is dependent on his or her rank in the Nigerian Police and grade. That being said, we shall take it from the recruit to the Inspector General of Police and you will learn about new salaries of different ranks in the Nigeria police force.

Also with the new munimum wage increase from N18,000 to N30,000 recently by the president, it is expected that officers of the force should see an increase in their pay.

The highest rank in Nigeria Police Force is the Inspector General of Police. He is appointed by the president and can be sacked by him also. The IGP is usually appointed on a four year term. He must leave office and the president will appoint another person to replace him when his tenure expires or if he is sacked. His monthly salary after the increase in minimum wage is more than what the other police officers earn; see it below:

IGP Salary per month -N711,498
IGP Annual Salary – N8,537,976

Those are Nigerian police salary structure as listed above. What is your take on the new salaries of the Nigerian police take home pay if the new minimum wage is added.

    There is a serious need to review the salaries of the members of the Nigeria Police Force as that will have a double effect. 1. It will reduce corruption, and 2. it will improve performance.

  20. Alex Lawrence

    The annual salary of a gatekeeper in USA is greater than the annual salary of IGP,is too bad of Nigerian government to those that endanger their lives to protect live and property and maintain law and order,
    That’s why it’s impossible to wage war against corruption within the NPF.

  21. Sulaiman Umar

    Ur analysis is far from the truth, this is just a paper work,I disagreed with u on Constable to Inspectors salary,may be that is the schedule that the police Pay offices are directed to prepear but they might have manipulated it for their selfish interest, the government should touch light the financial institution of The Nigeria Police Force for proper accounting.

  31. Dollar job

    If the salary structure that you listed above is really given to the Police, I bet you that Police will double their effort in combacting crime. The mss that are preparing the salary have different salary vouchers. The one that used to go to the FGN is different from the one they are actually paying to the force. Pls admin you can make more research on that, and you will see that it is truth

  32. julius agbaje

  34. Raymond Ayuba

    Police survive with their poor salaries by God’s grace!

  35. donaldo

    That is what is on paper before deductions.


    The are in great danger compared to order force even d army cus dey lesser war to fight beside army in d south just batrol abt doing nothing while all criminals never want to set dia eyes on police its even scary to wear police uniform while walking on d road cus d enemies of d police r every were n all money dealing firm works dependedly with d police, police r d peace of mind of d civilian why paying them this peanuts, wotz wrong with Nigeria government, how can a police salary so small when compared with dat of even road safety corp, its a shame ,
    xo painful n dia was a saying dat wen a criminal with gunz sees a soldier with gun he respect but wen he sees a police man with same he shoots n make sure d police never survive it even wen d police is weak to do anything dey will always kill ten without mercy,
    For me d police r in great war dan ever force in a developing country like Nigeria.
    Pay police to improve our country!
    Pay police to reduce civilian crisis
    Pay police to work like EFCC even more dan
    Pay police for citizens living in ghetto areas to move freely.
    Pay n equip police n see d beauty of d country in tends of peace.

    1. Protocol

      Let me clear your doubts here. A soldier is give respect because he earns every bit of it. not only in this country but in other countries as well. police are not civilian frendly though part of your asumptions may be right but a police man with gun is almost the same to a robber with gun the difference been the uniform. in other countries bail is free whereas you can sell plots of land to bail an innocent man and also police tend to intimidate you when you are in their custody so i dont see why any civilian would love them when they have more criminal records than the so called civilian. the nigerian police are out laws in disguise

      1. wale

        Don’t generalize bcs u av one issue or d other wit few of them. Police is a product of society and whatever anomaly u find in police cut across everywhere only police is glaring bcs u sight them everyday. Wat of d criminals in d office eating our nation thick nd sink even eating police budget. Abi among all d Dasuki gate d u see any ex police included.

  37. Omeye

    Federal Government should try top their salaries for a better performance from them.

  38. Ibrahim M.Dambo

    This is very painful news, that in the nigeria police force, no one earns 1 m monthly.

  39. Kingdom

    The problem of Police is within police. Fed Govt pay police well like other military. Police pay half of the salary to their personnel

  40. Bil

    I found it difficult to hold it that a police officer whom all civilians see as an enemy, the robbers any where the police are their target. Equip the police and raise a better society. If not for the insurgent the military would have not been seen out there. All round the road, corner, street and others the police are expected to be there. In develop world’s, the police do not pay for their wards school fee and other social needed fee. The government took responsibility of it. God they

  41. Omagwu daniel ukwumonu

    Why d huge disperity in salaries of federal government agencifs? all workers end up in the same market.can u imagine that some federal ministries and agencie7 dont pay up to 50k to level 8 officer i.e fresh graduates,?which police corporal on,level 4 recieves.

  42. Musa Mahmoud

    It is very poor salary let government do something about it


      It’s very pathetic pls Buhari do something about this urgently sir,it very disappointing.

  43. Kingsley

    If this salary scale is real, then people should shout if any officer tries to take bribe bc the salary is reasonably fair

  44. Maxwel mark

    Research should be carried out within the policemen, read what they actually collect from their salary alerts on phone sent by their respective banks. I believe by the time that is done, every nigerian will surely pity the police

  45. Bb

    Where on earth is such money paid 2 NPF? government should do sometin abut dat bcos d police i knw have nt receive up 2 #45000 per month b4

  46. defavour

  47. corporal real salary is 47,000 I’ve seen my friends alart

  48. corporal salary I received was 47,000

  49. ubale Katanga

    Police works 24/7 for the survival of the nation and yet they are being paid a meagre salary par from the one receives from other sister forces. Improvement requires.

    1. Ademi Adegboye

      Inspector of police collecting 47,393 from IPPIS but why so my brother was old Inspector promotion by 2017

  50. Richard senior

    I strongly disagree with your analysis, no Sergeant on grade level 5 step 10 is collecting more than 52635 as take home salary. Therefore if you are doing this for the interest of police officers you should try to make some research on the issue because your analysis shows that you’re totally out of police salary chart which clearly stated that police officer on grade level 05 step 10 is collecting not more than what I earlier stated so please don’t deceive us with your paper analysis please.

  51. felix barigbon

    Its a pity the government have to do the needful about the police salary, its too poor.

  52. suskyetim

    It a lie, I can’t believe it.
    I will confirm.

  53. Michael

    Going by what you posted, why is there so much difference in Police salary with that of the Armed Forces? pls let me know the criteria in the salary structure if
    ASP II = II Lieutenant
    ASP I = I Lieutenant
    DSP = Captain
    SP = Major
    CSP = Lt. Col.
    ACP = Col.
    Pls is there any justification in the Salary structure? Before the coming of IBB, the Police were receiving higher than the military, so what went wrong, why are the Police being treated as second class citizens? God bless you

  54. Bunmi

    If the figures is correct then its disheartening and something needs to be done urgently. The salary need to be increased more than 100%

  55. l.lucky

      Then you will hire touts to be your country’s security. Go anywhere in the world police are corrupt,but let the government do something about their welfare before we start to condemn them, they’re human being if you wear their shoes you will understand their condition. What is corruption, when someone is going home with millions everyweek and someone is taking 20 or 50 naira on the road, let’s be realistic brother.

    2. You have a hidden mortives or agenda. If you hate police one day you will look for police. Possibly you may be criminal, because only criminals doesn’t want to see police presence around him, I suspect you may be one of them.

    Kindly advise. What should one do, if unaware of aptitute test. Should she go for physical/documentation screening?

    1. That might not be possible given the fact that there are documentation that lists those who passed the aptitude test which will be checked before the physical screening.

    It’s quite insensitive and callously inhuman that Nigeria Police Officers salary are as poor as the pay check of a security personnel in a private institution.
    When the salary is right their attitude will be right.
    Nigeria Government should effect immediate increment in their salary. And then look out for bad eggs from there.

    I am .actually sick to my stomach. I work .closely with police. I have inside knowledge that in fact the senior officers in the officer look away when they see junior staff taking bribe. They do so out of pity for the suffering of the officers.

    Sya what ypu may about the NPF l, they put their lives on the line every day for all.of us. They lament the corruption, whem you speak to a St officer within the force they will lament their sadness at the reputation forced upon them by poor pay. I have proof.

    Check then UN international peace keeping force records the NPF is ranked as one of the best in the world but only outside Nigeria when getting paid correctly. That ought to tell us something. How in the world can the National Assembly sleep at night. Paying IG of police $24,000 a year. I am sick to my stomach

    There should be proper restructuring and documentation in the Police Force.

    I used to think that the commissioner of police is the same with the other state commissioners. So why are other state commissioners earning N1.33million a month and the commissioner of police earns N302,970.47?

    All this was very disheartening to read. It is a shame how the police are paid in your country. I am disgusted. Here in the US. Police are paid very well. It is a good job to have. Although us as a people still feel they are under paid. But after seeing the pay your police officers paid I suppose our officers are lucky. Lucky to have a government that knows the value of its police force. I think your officers should have a strike. Lay down their duties and demand better pay. An all man walk out would get the attention needed. This just can’t go on like this. It’s just plain pitiful.
