In a bid to stamp out corruption from the country’s police force, the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, on Monday, charged members of the public to report corrupt practices irrespective of the gravity.

Arase stated this at a workshop organised by a non- governmental organisation, CLEEN Foundation for civil societies, security agents and the media in Abeokuta.

The police boss was represented by Tayo Jolaoye, an Assistant Superintendent of Police at the workshop, titled: “Reporting Corruption Using the Stopthebribes Platform”.

Speaking on an an internet platform, www.stopthebribes.net set up for submission of complaints on corruption by government agencies including the police, the IGP stated that the portal created by the NGO would be keyed in by the police to expedite actions of the police in stamping out corruption from the public sector particularly the police.

He further explained that all complaints received on the portal would be processed earnestly and action taken immediately, also assuring the complainants that their identity could not be accessed by officers besides those who are in the special unit who have been tested to be reliable.
