According to 460PLAY, the state government was accused of underfunding the Community Protection Guards on a radio live program he hosted, and while no official cause was given for his suspension, it was speculated that the two may have anything in common.

According to Colonel Garba, who was speaking live on Vision FM radio Gusau, the state government has neglected to provide financial assistance to the Protection Guards.

He bemoaned the fact that the state government had failed to provide them a takeoff grant since their inauguration.

According to Garba, the protective guard officers have only received one wage payment since their appointment four months ago.
