Minister calls for Police Commissioner’s resignation

Minister for Higher Education, Pila Niningi, is calling for the resignation of Police Commissioner Gari Baki and Acting Correctional Services Commissioner, Stephen Pokanis.

Minister Niningi made this call after members of the Joint Security Task Force rampaged the Parliament house early this afternoon.

It is believed that the officers were not happy with the non-payment of their allowances during the APEC Summit, which ended on Sunday.

Minister Niningi, who was at the corridors of the Parliament house after the rampage, said such actions by law enforcers were uncalled for.

He added that there are proper procedures to follow rather than resorting to such acts.

This newsroom also caught up with NCD Metropolitan Commander, Superintendent Perou N’Dranou, but he would not comment on the matter.

He said Police Commissioner Gari Baki will be responding to all queries relating to the rampage.

Meantime, APEC CEO Chris Hawkins says payment has been made, advising security forces to check their accounts today.
