The Kano State Police Commissioner, Sama’ila Shu’aibu-Dikko has extolled two officers of the command, Insp. Garba Saleh-Rabo and Jamilu Alkassim for rejecting a N1 million bribe.
The duo, attached to the Kano State Consumer Protection Taskforce, reportedly rejected a N1million bribe by a suspected dealer of expired products in the city.
Moved by the exemplary conduct of the police officers, the Chairman of the task force, Bappa Dan’Agundi, presented them to the police commissioner.
The Police Commissioner described the action of the officers as worthy of emulation.
He said that the officers, following intelligence, had stormed a warehouse loaded with expired products worth billions of naira.
Shu’aibu-Dikko said that the owner of the expired products, in a bid to circumvent the law, offered the officers a N1million bribe which they turned down and got him arrested.
“The two personnel while working with the Consumer Protection Council Task Force received information that expired goods worth billions of naira were kept in a warehouse,” the police commissioner said in a statement.
“They stormed the location and were offered N1million bribe. They rejected the bribe, recovered the expired goods and arrested the suspect as well as brought the money as exhibit,” he said.
The police commissioner said the agency, in turn, presented N1million to the officers as a reward for their commitment and selfless service.
Shu’aibu-Dikko urged other officers in the command to emulate their colleagues whom he said brought honour to the police command in the state.
