 How police officers rejected N300,000 bribe, returned N600,000

Wonderful cops

A police officer who rejected N300,000 bribe and another who returned N600,000 mistakenly paid into his account along with another cop were honoured on Tuesday.

The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, who honoured the officers, charged Senior Police Officers to always commend their personnel who have exemplarily excelled in their duties.

The IGP said senior officers should honour the professionalism of their personnel which have in turn impacted positively on the goodwill and image of the Nigeria Police Force.

The police chief gave the charge while commending the exemplary performances of some officers and men across the State Commands.

He particularly commended Sergeant Sampson Ekikere, attached to 22 Police Mobile Force, Ikeja, Lagos, for his uncommon professionalism exhibited on Saturday, 19th March 2022, when he painstakingly recovered a wallet, belonging to one Mr. Lukman Abaja, and traced the owner to deliver the found item.

Baba equally commended Sergeant Yahaya Ahmed attached to Higher Shari’ah Court, Tudun Wada Division, Gusau, Zamfara State, for rejecting the sum of N300,000 bribe, offered to him by one Chukwuka Jude, who was arrested at the same court on 18th January 2022 for the offence of false presentation and cheating by impersonation.

The IGP also commended CSP Elemide Akinkunmi Bishop who was Head of Operations at the Police Radio.

CSP Bishop was mistakenly credited with the sum of N600,000 into his Police Account.

The officer withdrew the sum and remitted it back to the Nigeria Police Cooperative Society treasury, showing attributes of an honest and trustworthy police officer.

The IGP, however, assured the entire Police workforce of sustainable efforts in improving their condition of service with a view to making life meaningful to them and having the Nigeria Police Force of our choice. PMNEWS
