Show Of Shame : As Police Parade 9 Corrupt Officers by Ayemokhia: 10:46pm On Feb 22, 2010
Whenever Police authorities beat their chests asserting that they are one of the very few institutions in Nigeria that have zero tolerance for corruption, many people will look the other way.

In fact, many will boldly assert that their claim is the other way round. However, this Police claim got a boost  last Thursday in Lagos when men of the X squad at the Force Criminal Investigations Department (FCID),  Alagbon, publicly paraded nine members of the force for engaging in corrupt activities.

The officers who were  attached to various police formations in the Force were arrested for allegedly conducting illegal checking points at various highways within the country.  The arrested policemen were also caught collecting money from motorists plying their route.



Crime Guard learnt that on February 12th, 2010, officers attached to the  X Squad led by on (SP)  Amure Iliya Takobi who were on anti-corruption drive found squeezed N12, 000 in various denominations on six policemen attached to the Federal Highway Patrol.  The Policemen were conducting illegal check point at a spot popularly known as Aso Rock along the Lagos_ Benin Expressway.

Identities of the six policemen were given as (Insp) Rafiu Akinola, (Sgt) Hama Dogavi (Sgt) Dana Umar, (Cpl) Ason Usere Ikombosa and (Cpl) Adelowo Olaleka.

The other three arrested police officers were identified as (Pc) Leyi Isong attached to Ojo police division, (Pc) Stanley Okobia and Corporal Ley Kabomi.

The FCID Alagbon image_maker, Mr. Friday Achibong told reporters that detectives attached to X squad swung into action after getting series of complaints by members of the public about the nefarious activities of some of these policemen on the highway bordering on intimidation, harassment and extortion.



“In line with the Inspector-General of Police, Ogbonna Onovo anti-corruption posture and based on stern directives from the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) in-charge of the squad, Innocent Chibike,  detectives attached to X squad swung into action and rounded them up after carrying out surveillance for hours along Lagos-Benin Highway.  During the operation, some of them fled abandoning their rifles.

We later recovered those rifles and we have spread our dragnet in search of them.  They will be made to face disciplinary action by the authorities to serve as a deterrent to other such corrupt officers still remaining in the force”.
When Crime Guard spoke with some of the officers during the parade, they pleaded for forgiveness assuring that they will never engage in such criminal activities again.

wats good about this, how much are dey collecting that they are been sacked for, the true criminals are the IG (how many billions did d last IG steal) and other top ranking policemen and government officala, that refuse to see the logic of providing extremely well for the police and other armed forces, do you think its "yam" to put your life in danger for another human being esp one you dont know. abeg you guys shud give dem a break, its more humiliating to beg and dats wat d country is turning the police to, forced beggars.

Let us accept the fact that police officers live in the same poverty striken economy with the treasury looters who never think of improving the welfare of these officers. Nothing happens in vacuum without cause; let the leaders provide all necessary infrastructural facilities and allow the police officers their fringe benefits, I bet you no one will think of corrupt practices in this country.

All I wish is that " MAY YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW",

May the Almighty GOD reward them for their good deeds and punish (not forgive!!) them for their evil deeds.

The X - Squad or what they call themselves should come to Port Harcourt City and arrest all the police officers then. From Wimpey Junction, Off Ikwerre Road to Iwofe has more than 4 police toll - gates. Each toll gate collects N100 from every commercial vehicle that plies that route. What about the police toll gate directly opposite Mile 1 police station at Mile 1, Diobu, Port Harcourt? Hmmm, there they station boys that collects the money for them while they stop any defaulter themselves. What about the toll gate directly opposite Kala Police station?

Abeg, make una leave matter for Martina jor! I believe those paraded officers had either lost their godfathers or refused to decamp to the winning party, PDP of police!

Seconded, a bill should be passed by NL to enforce that, making sure they are enlisted in the NSE.

I am sorry if i do not get why Nigerians are happy with this development, is it the scrawny lanky and hungry police man at the check-point you should be worried about or Ogbonna and his ilk who have businesses, mansions and cars that their salaries cannot ordinarily pay for. angry

We all know how bladdy corrupt the police leadership is, how can they expect any less from the lower cadre, This stinks, if Onovo is fighting corruption he should start in-house, start from the top,

Bladdy pumpkin fool
