The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu has described police officers who accept bail as not different from kidnappers who kidnap for ransom.
Muazu stated this during the commissioning of a Statement Taking Room at the State Criminal Intelligence Investigation Department SCIID, Panti.
“I will advise that we stay far away from corruption. It gives us a bad name as it is unprofessional and unethical, he said.
“We have always said bail is free and we mean it. I keep saying it that any policeman who collects money for bail is not different from a kidnapper. The only difference is that everyone knows where you keep the suspects.
“The country is hard and we need people more than they need us. Let us stay far from corruption.”
