"I am allergic to corruption and I have zero tolerance for it" - Police IG, Solomon Arase

Saying he is allergic to corruption, the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has revealed that 16 teams have been deployed across all geo-political zones to enforce the ban on road blocks, a major source of corruption.

He made the statement while addressing senior police officers and men during his maiden visit to the Lagos State Police Command.

The IG, who was received by the Assistant Inspector General of Police Mbu Joseph Mbu, heading the Zone 2 Command comprising Lagos and Ogun States, said the ban on road blocks would be enforced to the latter.

He said, "Sixteen teams have been deployed to all the geo-political zones to make sure the ban on road blocks is enforced.

"The ban on road blocks does not mean there won't be civility policing in terms of police motor patrols. The road blocks have become a nuisance.

"I am allergic to corruption and I have zero tolerance for it. Therefore, I don't want to ambush any officer and anybody.

"Also, I have also directed that every person unauthorised to carry police officers as escort should be withdrawn."
While assuring his officers and men of improved welfare, the IG commended them for their loyalty to duty, and went on to enjoin them to do more.
