Drug Abuse: IGP Commends Lagos Cops For Rejecting N4m Bribe During Investigation

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has commended the officer in charge of the police tactical team attached to Area K, Marogbo, Lagos State Command, SP Rilwan Kasumu, and team, for rejecting the sum of N4,000,000 bribe while investigating a case of drug peddling and unlawful possession of ammunition.

Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi revealed this in a statement signed on Thursday.

The team had arrested one Esther Newman Obiekezie, 42 years, aka Candy, of No 6, Mojirade Street, Ilogbo Lagos, on 6th February, 2024, at her base where she sells drugs called ICE, and recovered a large quantity of the substance and some AK47 live ammunition from her.

In the cause of the investigation, the duo of Akete Esther, 43, and Oke Okebalam, 49 years, of Ajamgbadi Lagos, came to the station in Ijanikin, to solicit for the release of the drug peddler, Esther, and offered the sum of four million naira, and pleaded that the police should stop disrupting the illegal business (drug peddling) of Esther, henceforth.

The police officer who frowned at the offer siezed the cash and marked it exhibit and arrested the duo for further investigation and prosecution.

The IGP, therefore, reiterated the commitment of the Force to harnessing all available means and adopting professional anti-crime strategies to tackle all forms of crimes and criminality in Nigeria.
