The Chairman of Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Hon. Nasara Rabo, has rewarded a Divisional Police Officer, Idris Ibrahim, with the sum of N1million for rejecting an amount of money offered by a suspected kidnapper to help frustrate his investigation.
Ibrahim, the DPO of Tafa in Kagarko Local Government area, had rejected the bribe while police arrested the kidnapper alongside his share of ransom and vowed to allow the law to take it’s full course due to his patriotic principle and firm steadfast for justice.
Rabo who stated this in a letter of recommendation on Monday, disclosed that the DPO arrested a kidnapper on 22nd January 2024, who attempted to bribe him with huge amounts so that the investigation could be truncated or distorted the investigation process.
He said, “This singular effort you made has not only made the Nigeria Police Force proud but it had also made the good people of Kagarko Local Government Area, the good people of Kaduna State, and Nigeria at large. This is a testimony that with the calibre of officers like you in service insecurity and other criminality that bedevil our society today will become history.
“Under the foregoing, my Council and the management staff of Kagarko LGA hereby serve you with a formal letter of commendation and also present you with a token gift of one million naira as a morale booster to make you put more patriotic effort in dealing with criminality in the LGA and the country at large,” the chairman added.
Rabo urged all police personnel in the state to always uphold the ethics of the professional by refusing to be compromised in the discharge of their duties.
He further prayed to Almighty God to continue to encourage him to put in his best in the protection of the lives and properties of the good people of Nigeria.
