Policemen collecting N100 embarrassing — NPF


The Nigeria Police Force has
described the action of police officers who collect N100 from motorists in some
parts of the country as embarrassing.


The NPF spokesperson, CSP
Olumuyiwa Adejobi, lamented the actions of the officers when he was responding
to a question from an X user on why some policemen extort road users.


According to him, such action is
pure corruption and does not portray the force in a good light.


He attributed the alleged hatred
some Nigerians have for the police to the activities of such officers, saying
it is a matter of crime.


He wrote: “It’s pure corruption.
It’s not allowed or acceptable. It’s condemned in its totality. 100 naira or
whatever amount is being collected by some policemen (not all of them) on the
road is embarrassing and does not portray police in a good light.


“In fact, the hatred and bad
image of the police are tailored to this and some other isolated misconducts.
Those you see on the road collecting dirty money do not represent our
standards, values, and vision. It’s a matter of time.


“They will soon meet their
Waterloo. He also stated that the IGP has set up a committee to tackle
unprofessionalism in the force.


“The IGP detests that and is
working assiduously to tackle corruption, misconduct, and unprofessionalism in
the police. We will soon reveal the outcomes of IGP’s monitoring team’s
operations across the country. We have recorded successes in that regard, and
it’s a continuous exercise.”
