Don't bribe my men -Inspector General of Police

The new Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, have
appealed to all Nigerians not to give
bribe to policemen even if they ask of it. He made the statement today in Abuja while responding to
questions from journalists during
a meeting with senior officers on the issue of whether or not bail
was free.

“We have a zero tolerance for payment of money to free

I am appealing to
members of the public, not to
corrupt my men; It takes two to
tango. If they ask you for bribe and you refuse to give, and you
have avenues where your grievances can be ventilated, I
do not see any reason why you should give them bribe.

The Commissioner of Police is there; the Area Commander is there; the DPO is there; and the
technical platform (to report corrupt policemen) is there.

We have opened ourselves to public
accountability. So, you cannot now say the whole problem
should be blamed on the police
force’’, he said.

Is this possible?
