‘Police Officers Pay up to N2.5m Bribes for Special Promotion’ – Senator

So police men and women too, pay huge money to get promotions,...? N2.5 million at that, that's serious o! Hmm! 

Following the corruption process going on in Police Service Commission (PSC), Senator Misau of Bauchi senatorial district, while speaking with Daily Trust said that officers pay as much as N2.5 million to get a special promotions.

“You are talking about N500, 000, it’s beyond that. A serving police officer aware of the trend has told me that they pay as much as N2.5 million to get special promotion. Other sources have also confirmed to me. So it is nothing but fact.’’ he said.

“We cannot just fold our hands and allow this to continue. The special promotion should be reversed as it was done during the time of Nuhu Ribadu. Unless this is done the lives of Nigerians would no longer be secured. The special promotion is highly compromised,’’ he said.

"Corruption is not only associated with money, it has many forms and money for promotion is part of it. We have to urgently address this because the consequence is what we are witness today’’.

The spokeman of the commission, Ikechukwu Ani has however denied the allegations saying everything is not correct.

"It is not true. The Commission has not and will never collect bribes for promotion. The IGP sends recommendations and the Commission considers the promotion and takes a decision.”
