Kano CP lectures against corruption within the police circle

In line with the principles and ideologies of the In­spector-General of Po­lice, Mr. Ibrahim K. Idris, Kano state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Rabiu Yusuf on Friday, March 31, orgain­ized a lecture for officers and men, including the ranks and file in the Command, cen­tering on the need to abhor corruption and police with­out bias.
Mr. Rabiu Yusuf, partic­ularly, lectured officers and men working at State Crim­inal Investigation and Intel­ligence Department (SCIID), all Divisional Crime Officers and Investigation Police Of­ficers (IPOs) in the State. In his paper entuitled, “Change Begins With Me,” the police boss, categorically empha­sized that the era of bribery and corruption is over in the Police circle and directed that nobody should accept or de­mand money or any form of favour for bail, adding that, “any Senior Police Officer found to be engaged in cor­rupt practices will be queried and sent to Force Headquar­ters for disciplinary action, while Inspectors and Rank and File will be sanctioned appropriately.”
Rabiu Yusuf who was one-time Deputy Commisioner of police in-charge of Kano Command SCID, also cau­tioned against illegal inves­tigation of cases, unlawful detention of suspects and prolonged detention, urging police officers to respect hu­man rights in the course of all investigations.
He insisted that, “you should exhibit profession­alism and diligence during investigation by collating all relevant evidences and wit­nesses, and forwarding of case files to Director of Pub­lic Prosecution (DPP) for Le­gal advice where applicable,” just as he called on the Le­gal and Prosecution Depart­ment to ensure diligent and logical prosecution of cases in the Court of Law, adding that, “cases should be judi­ciously followed up to gain conviction of criminals.”
The police boss, however, reiterated his stand against corruption, promising to expose any police officer found to be involved in cor­rupt practices. - The Authority
