The Nigeria Police has said there will be mercy nor no cover-up in the case of the Assistant Commissioner of Police arrested with N2.7 million bribe cash.
In an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday, October 23rd, the Head, Compliant Response Unit (CRU), Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Abayomi Shogunle, said the police will follow all necessary actions and steps to ensure justice is achieved.
“I don’t see anybody covering up this particular case because the necessary actions needed to be taken, the normal disciplinary procedure as provided under the Police Act and Regulations are being followed.” he said.
According to reports, the indicted officer had been issued a query and a criminal investigation had been conducted by the X-squad.
Adding that he has responded to the query and had faced the Force Disciplinary Committee (FDC), which had made its recommendations to Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris for a feedback.
“The processes needed have been done and all we are just waiting for is the recommendations of the PSC.”
“One of the things the I-G has tasked the CRU, which is no to impunity, is that the unit should ensure that it upholds that motto,” he added.
The CRU head said that the inclusion of the X-squad unit of the police was yielding result.
“One of the breakthroughs we have had as contained in the CRU third quarter report was actually done by the x-squad. This is the kind of things the public should expect with the inclusion of the squad by the I-G in the fight against corruption,” he said.
“As a matter of fact, we have a committee made up of these organisations to review policing operations nationwide. We hear from them issues of policing and also give them feedback on their cases that were handled by the CRU,” he said.
