Force Public Relations Officer, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has said that he does not collect bribe or gifts of any kind.
Adejobi said this on Monday while responding to an X (Twitter] user who asked him to “swear by his village deity” that he had never accepted a bribe since joining the Police Force.
The user posed the question after Adejobi wrote: “Police administrative bail is free. If anyone demands bail money, you too demand an invoice or receipt to prove payment. If he can’t issue it, dont pay. That is a fraud. I have said this severally. Thanks”.
The man went on to ask Adejobi if he had ever been involved in bribery.
Adejobi responded saying that since joining the police force in 2005, he has never accepted bribe.
The police spokesperson further disclosed that as a crowned prince of Owu, it would be “ridiculous” for him to accept bribes.
“I have answered this. PR is in me. I joined NIPR in 2004 before I joined the police in 2005. I have been a PR man before I even applied to join the police. I even reject gifts. Many people on Twitter have been willing to recharge my phone, but i appeal to them not to do.
“Those who know me know I reject gifts, let alone bribe. I am a crowned prince of Owu, so it’s ridiculous to take a bribe. If you do well, Nigerians are very nice and ready to appreciate you, and bless you in all areas, if you are a nice officer,” the police PRO wrote.
