The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase has said the police under his leadership has fought corruption to the barest minimum, stating that the force has dismissed 50 police officers for corrupt practices and misconduct.

He stated that 56 others were sanctioned for various offences between May and November, 2015.

Arase, who stated this during the end of the year IG Conference at the Force Headquarters, Abuja on Thursday, explained that as part of efforts in ensuring peace in the North-East, 3000 personnel were deployed in the liberated areas.

He said, “Between May and November, 2015, the anti-corruption enforcement architecture emplaced by the Force leadership has led to the dismissal of a total of 50 personnel for proven corrupt practices while another 56 have been awarded various punishments.

“The IGP Monitoring Unit, X-Squad and the Provost Marshal have been charged to sustain the enforcement drive in the upcoming year while the policy of holding Commissioners of Police, Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers, vicariously liable for such distasteful professional misconduct will also be reinforced.”

Meanwhile, the IG has inaugurated a scholarship award for 301 children of personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty and for those who have excelled in their various duty posts.

Arase called on philanthropists and corporate organisations to support the foundation which he said would also cater for children of victims of police brutality.

He said, “The Force leadership will profoundly reward the families of serving police officers that keep faith with our vision for a professional, discipline, civil, loyal and incorruptible Police Force in a way that will motivate them for higher performance.

“It is also for our colleagues that paid the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty. They shall not walk alone. We, as their commanders and colleagues, will do everything within our professional powers to keep their invaluable dreams alive and support the family they left behind.”
