Nigeria promotes six gallant, bribe-rejecting police officers (FULL LIST)

Nigeria Police Force

The Police Service Commission says it has promoted six police officers to their next ranks for outstanding performances in their various areas of duty.

The officers are: Suleiman Abdul and Olusoji Akinbayo, assistant commissioners of police; Mu’awuyya Abubakar, a superintendent of police; Sunday Idowu, a deputy superintendent of police; Eheziekia Abiona, an assistant superintendent of police; and Ogunbiyi Agbabu, a police inspector.

Ikechukwu Ani, head, Press and Public Relations of the commission, said in a statement in Abuja on Monday that the commission took the decision in its 19th meeting in Abuja.

He said that Mr. Abdul, who is currently with the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, recently recovered N42 billion for the Federal Government.

Mr. Ani said that Messrs. Akinbayo and Idowu had rejected a bribe of $21 million and another $12,900 from one Samuel Wilberforce.

“The officers in spite of this huge inducement defied the temptation and arrested the pipeline vandals,” he said.

He said their actions portrayed the Nigeria Police Force in good light as they exhibited professionalism, fearlessness and incorruptibility in the conduct of their assignment.

He said that the chairman of the commission, Mike Okiro, was poised to enthrone honesty, responsibility and fear of God in the Nigeria Police Force.

Mr. Okiro noted that the special promotions were meant to spark off a new wave of integrity in the conduct of police officers.

“The promotion is another way of motivating the honest and disciplined officers and a wake-up call to the few disgruntled elements still in service,” he said.

He warned that officers who failed to embrace the new disposition of the commission, would be shown the way out of the force.

Mr. Ani said that the special promotions take immediate effect.

    Good Gesture from Nigeria Police. If we continue to reward hard work and honesty then will be on our way to a sane society.

    An insane society is where thieves and thugs are rewarded with ‘big appointments’ and Justice is for the highest bidder.

      My brother there are tens if not hundreds of members of the NPF who are as clean as the word clean but you don’t get to see them because they are never posted to such areas where bribes are demanded simply because they don’t make returns to whoever is doing the postings as well as other heads.

    These are the TRUE NIGERIANS that should be given national honors not the constant stealing/looting politicians, rogue bank officials and those Nigerian businessmen who get inflated contracts and never pay tax and vat. I hope these officers will grow in the force and become IGPs, AIGS and Chairmen of EFCC. All Nigerian newspapers and media should carry their stories for weeks then let our educational institutions use their stories to teach our children the real meaning of honesty, dedication to duty and what it takes to come from good family backgrounds with sustainable values. I hope PT, Punch, Corrupt Thisday, Well respected Channels TV and other credible media houses will dig into the background of these officers towards educating Nigerians that after all there can be hope even from a chronic corrupt police agency.
