The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has honoured SP Daniel Itse Amah, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Nasarawa Division in Kano State, for rejecting $200,000 bribe from robbers.
He was honoured along with two other policemen for their professionalism and integrity.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi on Wednesday.
Adejobi said the IGP had commended Amah for his integrity and exhibition of sound professionalism leading to the arrest of an armed robbery syndicate despite being offered a bribe of $200,000 to look away, which he rejected.
He said the IGP had similarly directed the issuance of commendation certificates to the officers for distinguishing themselves despite the many challenges of policing the nation effectively.
“Similarly, the IGP commended the gallantry of Inspector Ekene Ndukwu of the Imo State Police Command who successfully laid ambush and neutralized two members of a bandit gang who stormed his house in the early hours of August 4th, 2022.
“The Police Inspector who was armed, surprised the bandits with heavy gunfire which repelled their attacks.
“The IGP equally commended Police Constable Nura Mande attached to the Katsina State Police Command who found and returned an envelope containing 800 USD belonging to an intending pilgrim, an old woman, at the Hajj Camp, Katsina,” Adejobi said.
He added that the IGP had charged all officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force to emulate the noble conduct of these exemplary members of the Force.
“He tasked the commended officers to continually exemplify good conduct, integrity, bravery and gallantry in the discharge of their policing responsibilities,” he said.
