Lalong Commends Plateau Born Police Officer For Rejecting $200,000 Bribe
Governor Simon Bako Lalong has praised Plateau State born police officer CSP Daniel Itse Amah who was recently honoured by ICPC for rejecting $200,000 bribe from robbers.
CSP Daniel Itse Amah, an indigene of Jos East local government area of Plateau State, joined the Nigerian Police Force as a Cadet Inspector in 2002 and is currently serving as a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Bompai Police Station in the Nasarawa local government area of Kano State.
He is said to have rejected the bribe in the course of investigating a robbery matter which was reported to the Police Division in Kano State where he was the DPO.
Governor Lalong in a statement by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr. Makut Simon Macham, while congratulating the officer for his honesty and patriotism to reject the temptation to participate in corruption and conceal crime, said he has made his family, Plateau State and Nigeria proud by his actions.
Lalong said he was not surprised because the action of CSP Itse is in tandem with the Plateau spirit of diligence, honesty, patriotism and hardwork.
While urging him to keep the spirit and also continue to mentor others, the Governor said by this singular act, the career of the officer is very bright in his quest to serve the nation.
