‘We are not corrupt’ – Nigerian Police lament

The report which was released Wednesday in Abuja indicated that police officers are the type of public officials to whom bribes are most commonly paid in Nigeria.

The police ranked high with 46.4 percent while prosecutors ranked directly after them with 33.0 percent.


Other public officials put into perspective are Judges and magistrates, tax and revenue officers, customs officers and public utilities officers.

Reacting to the report, the Force Spokesman, CSP Jimoh Moshood described the report as false.

He also urged Nigerians to disregard the report noting that there is no way the Nigeria Police Force officials could be corrupt.

He said: “I don’t think the UNODC are for such purpose. We have not seen such report and we cannot react to what we have not seen but what I know is that Nigeria Police Force is not corrupt.

“Corruption is a personal thing and Nigeria Police Force is not a corrupt institution and it is not for anybody to have made such allegation.

“The allegations are mischievous because it is not empirical and we distant ourselves from such and we want all Nigerians to condemn such.


“In fact a lot of changes have been introduced into the Force to ensure that we are accountable to the people.

“Such a report is unacceptable by the Force and we want everybody to disregard such because the Nigeria Police is not corrupt. The allegation is not empirical and it cannot stand any test or proof. It is misleading.”
