Inspector General Of Police Begs Nigerians To Stop Corrupting Police Officers

If you are one of those who are regularly influencing the activities of the Nigerian Police Force, it is time to desist from such act.

The Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali -Baba has urged Nigerians to stop corrupting his officers in the public.

As Nigeria inches towards the general election in 2023, the chief police officer reinterated that the only way to get the best out of the security agents is to allow them carry out their responsibility without being influenced by both the electors and electorates.

Alkali-Baba made this statement during a Public Lecture and Integrity Award with the theme: “Promoting Integrity as a way of fighting corruption,”.

The public lecture was organized by the Centre For Awareness and Accountability (CAJA), in conjunction with The Penlight Center, in Kano, on Wednesday.

The IGP who was represented by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abubakar Zubairu, said, the exemplary conduct of the CAJA Integrity Award recipient, ACP, Daniel Amah, who rejected a $200, 000 bribe from criminals, was a true reflection of what the Nigerian Police Force under his watch stands for.

Alkali-Baba expressed gratitude to CAJA for its decision to recognize Officer Amah, saying“To many, we are corrupt, we don’t know what to do.

“Today, we are glad one of us is being recognized. It is an open secret that we have a lot of ACP Daniel Itse Amahs among us, it is just that they are not being recognized.

“Please, don’t try to corrupt security men; members of the public should refrain from trying to corrupt us.” he said.

The IGP statement is coming amidst several indictments of corruption by members of the public against the uniform men.
