- Zubairu Muazu, the Lagos state Commissioner of Police, has stated that police officers who collect money for bail are same as a kidnapper and even worse.
Muazu made this known in Lagos on Tuesday, July at the commissioning of a Statement Taking Room at the State Criminal Intelligence Investigation Department SCIID, Panti.
In his words:-
”I will advise that we stay far away from corruption. It gives us a bad name as it is unprofessional and unethical.
“We have always said bail is free and we mean it. I keep saying it that any policeman who collects money for bail is not different from a kidnapper. The only difference is that everyone knows where you keep the suspects.
“The country is hard and we need people more than they need us. Let us stay far from corruption” Zubairu said.
