Shun Extortion, ACP Advises Young Police Officers


Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, Agba Nchor, has called on young and upcoming police officers to shun money and carry out their jobs professionally.

Speaking during the send-off party organised for him by officers at state High School in Gowon Estate, Lagos, ACP Nchor said police officers who join the Force with the intention to extort money from the public will not go far in the profession.

According to him, a trained police officer should work strictly in accordance with the profession, else, the officer may have problems before getting to his/her retirement age.

“I thank God and the entire Police Force with Muhammed Abubakar as Inspector-General, who has worked tirelessly to reposition and rebrand the Police Force for optimum performance at various levels,” he said.

While expressing gratitude to the officers, who worked with him to dislodge criminals, rapists, illicit drug dealers and users of Kuwait, a criminal hideout in Gowon Estate, the acting ACP urged the officers of the station to maintain the tempo in curbing criminal activities in the area.
