IGP condemns Inspectors’ extortion for promotion, warns officers

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, has condemned the alleged extortion and unethical conduct surrounding the ongoing promotion interviews for Inspectors aspiring to the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP).

The IGP said the behaviour undermines the Nigeria Police Force, stressing that such will not be tolerated.

He made this known via a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

Adejobi noted: “The IGP strongly condemns any form of corruption in the promotion process and urges all officers to report any instances of misconduct promptly and directly to the IGP through the dedicated hotline at 09077120194 or to the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO) at 08037168147.

“In light of these allegations, the Nigeria Police Force reaffirms its commitment to transparency and accountability in all promotion procedures.

“Any officer found engaging in corrupt practices for personal gain will face severe disciplinary measures.

“All officers are urged to maintain ethical standards and work collectively to uphold the integrity and credibility of the Police Force.”
