The Nigeria Police Force has arrested all its officers who are involved in the N30M million extortion of a Nigerian based in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

A resident recently took the complaint about the N30 million extortion of a fellow Nigerian to the X social media platform, where it gained the attention of the Police Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

ACP Adejobi, after coming across the X post informed the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, who ordered police officers to go after the police team behind the extortion.

"The Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Ph.D., NPM, as part of his commitment to upholding the highest standards of integrity and accountability within the Nigeria Police Force, has ordered the commencement of disciplinary proceedings to ensure that justice is served swiftly and decisively. These disciplinary measures underscore the zero-tolerance stance of the Nigeria Police Force towards any form of misconduct or corruption among its ranks.

"The IGP also emphasized the imperativeness that those found to have violated the trust placed in them by the public face the full consequences of their actions, as such behavior not only tarnishes the reputation of the Force but also undermines the collective efforts to maintain law and order in our country.

"The Nigeria Police Force remains resolute in its quest to uphold the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and accountability.

"As guardians of public safety and the rule of law, we are deeply committed to ensuring that all officers adhere strictly to ethical conduct and demonstrate staunch integrity in the discharge of their duties.

"The NPF recognizes that transparency and accountability are paramount in maintaining public trust and will continue to take decisive action against any misconduct within our ranks.

In a separate statement, ACP Adejobi revealed that part of the extorted money has been recovered while restating that the Police had no Point of Sales (POS) used for the extortion, but was ma fe e possible in connivance with members of the public who operate the POS business.

He said, "We have recovered some money from the men and their cohorts in the deal, including the affected POS operator(s).

"I have said repeatedly that some POS operators connive with some of our operatives to extort Nigerians. If those operators stop connivance today, these corrupt practices will surely stop. The IGP has zero tolerance for oppression, extortion, corruption, misconduct, etc. The journey of a thousand kilometers starts with a step. We shall reach that admired destination. We shall have a people-friendly, competent, and loveable police force.
