The statement noted the zero-tolerance stance of the Police towards misconduct or corruption within its ranks, especially the importance of transparency and accountability in maintaining public trust.

The IGP stressed the necessity of holding accountable those who violate the trust placed in them by the public, as their actions tarnish the reputation of the Force and undermine efforts to maintain law and order in the country.

The NPF reaffirmed its commitment to taking decisive action against any misconduct among its personnel.
