The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has issued a stern warning to Nigerians against falling victim to unaccredited agents purportedly processing petitions on behalf of the Nigeria Police.
In a recent statement, ACP Adejobi emphasized that the Nigeria Police Force does not employ or authorize any agents for the submission and processing of petitions. The alert comes in response to a growing trend where unsuspecting citizens seek the assistance of dubious individuals, resulting in delayed attention to their complaints and, in some cases, justice being denied.
Expressing concern over the detrimental impact of these unauthorized agents, ACP Adejobi stated, “These elements charge and dupe people of huge amounts under the pretense of processing their complaints, thereby denting the image of the Police and our Senior Officers. This is improper and unacceptable.”
Nigerians are strongly urged to submit their petitions directly to the offices of the Nigeria Police as normal correspondence. ACP Adejobi clarified that there are no special treatments or administrative bureaucracies in place for petitions, emphasizing equal treatment for all.
The public is encouraged to expose and report individuals engaged in these deceptive practices through the officially published complaint platforms.
ACP Adejobi condemned such activities, stating, “We condemn this in its totality and will do everything possible to curb such, and whoever is caught in that dirty deal will face the full wrath of the law.”
As the Nigeria Police takes a firm stance against fraudulent petition processing, citizens are reminded to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to ensure the integrity of the justice system.
