‘They’ll meet their waterloo’ — Muyiwa Adejobi condemns police officers extorting money on highways

Muyiwa Adejobi, the public relations officer (PRO) of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), has condemned officers who extort travellers on roads across the country.
Responding to a question on the matter on Wednesday, Adejobi described the act of extorting money from commuters as “pure corruption” that does not portray the police in a good light.
He said Kayode Egbetokun, the inspector general of police (IGP) is working to tackle corruption and unprofessionalism in the system.
“It’s condemned in its totality. 100 naira or whatever amount being collected by some policemen (not all of them) on the road is embarrassing and does not portray police in a good light,” he wrote on his X page.
“In fact, the hatred and bad image of the police are tailored to this and some other isolated misconducts.
Those you see on the road collecting dirty money do not represent our standards, values, and vision.
“It’s a matter of time. They will soon meet their Waterloo. The IGP detests that and is working assiduously to tackle corruption, misconduct and unprofessionalism in the police.
“We will soon reveal the outcomes of IGP’s monitoring team’s operations across the country. We have recorded successes in that regard, and it’s a continuous exercise.”
