According to the statement, Ekikere, who is attached to 22 Police Mobile Force, Ikeja in Lagos, was commended for recovering a wallet belonging to one Lukman Abaja.

He was said to have traced the owner to deliver the found item to him on Saturday last week.

Ahmed, on his part, rejected a N300,000 bribe offered to him by one Chukwuka Jude.

Jude was arrested at the Higher Shari’ah Court in the Tudun Wada area of Gusau, the Zamfara State capital for offences bordering on false presentation and cheating by impersonation.

Also commended was Bishop who was Head of Operations at the Police Radio. The CSP was mistakenly credited with the sum of N600,000 into his police account.

“The officer withdrew the money and remitted it back to the Nigeria Police Cooperative Society treasury, showing attributes of an honest and trustworthy police officer,” Adejobi said.

The IGP assured the entire police workforce of sustainable efforts in improving their condition of service with a view to making life meaningful to them as they carry out their duties to Nigerians.

He called on senior police officers to always appreciate personnel who display similar performance in their respective jurisdictions, saying such actions have impacted positively on the goodwill and image of the Nigeria Police Force.
