“They are the reason Nigerians hate us” – Police Spokesperson speaks on officers collecting N100 from motorists

Adejobi's nomination as Force PRO has been confirmed by the IGP

CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson for the Nigeria Police Force, has expressed disapproval of certain officers who accept N100 bribes from motorists in certain areas of the country.

Adejobi criticized these officers when asked by a user on X about why some policemen engage in extortion of road users.

He stated that such behavior is indicative of corruption and tarnishes the image of the police force.

Adejobi further stated that the negative sentiment toward the police by some Nigerians is a direct result of the actions committed by these officers, underscoring that it is a criminal offense.

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

“The hatred and bad image of the police is 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.”
