At a one-day virtual stakeholder meeting yesterday, the Police Force, and the Federal Road Safety Corps of Nigeria called on Nigerians to desist from offering bribes to their officers.

The virtual stakeholder meeting which was organised by the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption was tagged, ‘Effective And Sustainable Strategies For Curbing Retail Corruption’. 

Both agencies also called on the general public to report any officer who demands bribe from anyone.

Senior FRSC official, Ntukidem Godwin, to show the seriousness of the FRSC in the fight against corruption, announced that the agency has deployed body cameras to monitor officers’ field activities in Abuja, and that there are plans to replicate it in other states.

On the other hand, Olaolu Adegbite, a Deputy Commissioner of Police of the Force Intelligence Bureau said:

The IG Monitoring Unit also conducts sting operations and arrests officers in the field and makes recoveries. Citizens must provide support through evidence.


He added:

Citizens should stop the act of offering bribe and gratification, which is a crime under the Criminal Code. The X-Squad monitors unethical conduct. Citizens can approach the squad with information.
