The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Zubairu Muazu, on Tuesday inaugurated a statement-taking room for the CID Panti, Yaba, warning that policemen collecting money for bail were not different from kidnappers and would not be spared.

The facility was provided by the Rule of Law and Anti-corruption (RoLAC) Programme managed by the British Council and funded by European Union.

At the inauguration on Tuesday, Muazu commended RoLAC for the initiative, noting that statement-taking was important in police investigation

The commissioner said that statement-taking was the foundation of police investigation.

He said the facility was important to police operations, assuring the British Council that it would be put to effective use.

The Lagos police boss warned officers men of the command against corrupt activities, saying that anyone caught would be decisively dealt with.

“I advise that we stay far away from corruption. It gives us a bad name as it is unprofessional and unethical

He cautioned them against collecting money for bail.

“We have always said bail is free and we mean it. I keep saying that any policeman who collects money for bail is not different from a kidnapper. The only difference is that everyone knows where you kept the suspects.

“The country is hard and we need people more than they need us. Let us stay far from corruption,” he said.
