THE newly-created search and rescue marshals by Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, have protested the non-payment of their monthly allowances.

Confirming the development, Mr. Salami, one of the supervising officers in charge of the marshals, told Indepndent that the allowances were received last in November 2015.

Salami explained that services of the marshals were voluntary, adding that he does not know why the payment were stopped and referred Independent to the safety department of the agency.

He disclosed that the search and rescue pilot programme started in April last year, adding that they are paid monthly stipends of N12,000 for transport.
