The Nigeria Police Force leadership  has said there would be no cover-up in the case of the Assistant Commissioner of Police arrested with N2.7 million bribe money.

The Head, Compliant Response Unit, CRU, Abayomi Shogunle, disclosed this in an interview with the NAN in Abuja. He said the police had taken all necessary actions provided in the Police Act and Regulations in respect of the case.

"I don’t see anybody covering up this particular case because the necessary actions needed to be taken, the normal disciplinary procedure as provided under the Police Act and Regulations are being followed.”

Shogunle, an assistant commissioner of police, said the officer in question had already been issued a query and a criminal investigation had been conducted by the X-squad.

The officer had responded to the query and had faced the Force Disciplinary Committee (FDC).

Mr. Shogunle added that the FDC had made its recommendations to the Inspector-General of Police, IG, which had been forwarded to the Police Service Commission, PSC, for ratification.

“The processes needed have been done and all we are just waiting for is the recommendations of the PSC.”

It would be recalled that information about the recovery of the N2.7m bribe money from the officer in question was made known in the third quarter report of the CRU, signed by ACP Abayomi Shogunle, Head of CRU in Abuja.
