The Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of the Zone 2 Command, AIG Lawal Shehu, has warned people to desist from paying money to obtain bail.
He insisted that “bail is free and any police officer caught taking bribe will be dealt with”.
Describing corruption as a disease, AIG Shehu said “demanding or obtaining money is corruption and a serious offence that will not go unpunished”.
On Eid ul-Adha, a Muslim festival coming up soon, he said his command had done everything necessary to see that miscreants would not hijack the celebration.
He pointed out that everybody is a stakeholder when it comes to matter of security and said that any information given by anybody would be treated with utmost confidentiality.
He commended the Inspect General of Police, IGP Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, for handling police affairs with wisdom and foresight.
