Lagos CP likens Policemen collecting money for bail to kidnappers

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr Zubairu Muazu, has said policemen collecting money for bail were not different from kidnappers and warned that they would not be spared when caught.

He made this statement, at the inauguration of a statement-taking room for the CID Panti, Yaba, on Tuesday.

The Lagos police boss warned officers of the command against corrupt activities, saying that anyone caught would be decisively dealt with. He also cautioned them against collecting money for bail.

“I advise that we stay far away from corruption. It gives us bad name as it is unprofessional and unethical

“We have always said bail is free and we mean it. I keep saying that any policeman who collects money for bail is not different from a kidnapper. The only difference is that everyone knows where you kept the suspects, he said.

Muazu added “The country is hard and we need the people more than they need us. Let us stay far from corruption.”
