The new Commissioner of Police in Bauchi State, Haliru Gwandu, has warned officers of the Nigeria Police Force in the state to stay away from extortion, bribery and corruption when carrying out their regular duties.
He cautioned the police of Bauchi state in a familiarisation meeting with officers of the Command held at the Police Officers Mess in Bauchi.
He went on to inform the officers that the era of zero tolerance has come, hence the need for them to shun all corrupt acts, warning that anyone caught will face the full wrath of the law.
“This era won’t tolerate corruption. Wherever you find yourself, the issue of corruption, bribery and extortion should not be there. If you are apprehended, you are on your own. It is time for attitudinal change in everything. In fact, policemen are supposed to lead this crusade.”
