The police headquarters has said it will not refrain from punishing any officer found guilty of corrupt practices.
A top police source in Abuja said yesterday that the new police management will not spare any officer no matter his rank from facing trial, if he is found guilty of corruption.
He said over 100 officers will be questioned over different pending cases of fraud "and nobody will be spared" in the exercise. He said the reports of the cases were forwarded to the inspector general for necessary actions.
"Some of the case files were covered up until recently when the police authority pledged to stamp out corruption at all levels."
He said commissioners and divisional officers were directed by the inspector general to establish strong rapport with the communities they work with and listen to the views of the people.
The source further said no police officer will be promoted henceforth, without passing necessary promotion examinations. "Those who fail the tests three times will be advised to resign or forced to quit service. The move will restore police integrity."
