I Don’t Collect Bribe, It’s A Taboo – FPRO, Adejobi

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Sunday, said he doesn’t collect bribes because doing so is taboo to him as a prince.

He also described the collection of bribes as “ungodly.”

Adejobi noted that such acts result in putting some other people in a state of sorrow.

The Force PRO stated this while replying to a user on X.com who had asked him the question earlier.

“Have you taken a bribe before?” Valentine Kruze tweeting as #ValentineKruz14 had asked.

Adejobi, a prince born to Oba Moses Adejobi, the late Olowu of Orile-Owu, in the Ayedade Local Government Area of Osun State, responded via his X handle #Princemoye1, noting, “No. It’s taboo for a royal prince to take a bribe. Taking a bribe definitely makes someone somewhere cry for many reasons, and it’s ungodly to do so.

“Your main purpose in life is to put smiles on people’s faces. It’s Godly and rewarding. It’s my personal principle and a call to duty.

“I preach this to my colleagues and many others always. May we have the grace to remain steadfast and purposeful in life.”

This follows the dismissal of a police Inspector, Adabo Mohammed, who was accused of criminal conspiracy and armed robbery, among others.

Mohammed, alongside five others, was said to be a member of an armed robbery gang allegedly responsible for the stealing of N29.8 million from a victim in Gwagwalada, Federal Capital Territory.

Adejobi, on Friday, had stated the resolve of the Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun to ensure the commitment of the police operatives to uphold professional standards within the Force.

“In a decisive move to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and integrity within the Nigeria Police Force, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has emphasised his administration’s zero-tolerance policy towards any form of indiscipline.

“He stressed that the mandate of the police is to serve and protect with honour and integrity, and as such all breaches of the core values of the NPF will be met with decisive action to maintain public trust and ensure justice,” the statement partly read.

In December 2023, the Nigeria Police dismissed two special constabularies – Jimoh Lukmon and Kareem Fatai, who attempted to extort a Dutch power bike cyclist.

The dismissal was announced by the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Hamzat Adebola, at the police headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

The two special constabularies identified were captured in a viral video soliciting money from the Dutch tourist.
