Desist from name dropping, extortion – IGP warns police officers


Inspector General of Police, Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun has warned police officers against dropping or using his name for extortion purposes.

This was disclosed in a post by the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi on his Official X handle.

Egbetokun implored the public to exercise caution and report any attempts to exploit his name for fraudulent activities or extortion, most especially in the investigation of cases.

“He urged Nigerians to promptly report any incidents of extortion or fraudulent activity, providing detailed information to facilitate thorough investigations that will lead to severe sanctions for erring officers.”
