I Have Never Collected A Bribe Since Joining Police — Force Pro Adejobi

The spokesperson for the Nigeria Police Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, asserted on Monday that he has never accepted a bribe throughout his tenure with the police.

Adejobi made this statement in response to a question posed by an X user who urged him to swear by his “village deity” that he had never taken a bribe since joining the force.

The exchange occurred after Adejobi wrote a post about police administrative bail being free and cautioned against paying bail money to anyone who demanded it without providing an invoice or receipt as proof of payment.

In response to the user’s request to swear that he had never taken a bribe, Adejobi stated that he had never accepted a bribe since joining the police in 2005. He added that he has consistently rejected gifts, even turning down offers from people on Twitter to recharge his phone.

Adejobi also mentioned that he is a crowned prince of Owu and emphasized that it would be ridiculous for him to accept bribes. He stated that Nigerians are ready to appreciate and bless officers who perform well.

It’s worth noting that there have been numerous documented cases of Nigerian police officers engaging in extortion, leading to a lack of trust among the public. In a survey conducted by NOI Polls, 73% of Nigerians stated that they do not trust the Nigerian Police Force, citing corruption as a major issue. In 2016, the World Internal Security and Police Index (WISPI) ranked the Nigeria Police Force as the worst in the world in terms of addressing internal security issues.
