Kayode Egbetokun, inspector-general of police, has warned officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) against using his name for extortion and other corrupt practices.

Egbetokun urged Nigerians to report any form of extortion by police officers to appropriate authorities.

In a statement on Wednesday, Muyiwa Adejobi, force spokesperson, said the IGP warned that any officer found guilty of leveraging on his name would receive severe sanctions.

“IGP Kayode Egbetokun implored the public to exercise caution and report any attempts to exploit his name for fraudulent activities or extortion, most especially in the investigation of cases,” the statement reads.


“He highlighted the crucial role citizens play in collaboration with the police force to maintain a high standard of conduct and eliminate corruption within the system.

“The IGP, therefore, reassured the public of the force’s commitment, under his watch, to root out misconduct and ensure accountability at all levels.

“He urged Nigerians to promptly report any incidents of extortion or fraudulent activity, providing detailed information to facilitate thorough investigations that will lead to severe sanctions for erring officers.”


The force spokesperson asked Nigerians to report erring police officers via the police social media handles, or call these phone numbers: 08057000001, 08057000002, 08057000003, and 07056792065.
