Lalong praise Plateau born police officer for rejecting $200,000 bribe from robbers.

Governor Simon Bako Lalong has praised the Plateau State-born police officer CSP Daniel Itse Amah who was recently honored by ICPC for rejecting a $200,000 bribe from robbers.

This was made known in a statement by the Director of Press and Public Affairs to the Governor of Plateau State, Dr. Makut Simon Macham on Thursday 6th October 2022.

CSP Daniel Itse Amah, an indigene of Jos East local government area of Plateau State, joined the Nigerian Police Force as a Cadet Inspector in 2002 and is currently serving as a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Bompai Police Station in the Nasarawa local government area of Kano State.

He is said to have rejected the bribe in the course of investigating a robbery matter which was reported to the Police Division in Kano State where he was the DPO.

Governor Lalong while congratulating the officer for his honesty and patriotism to reject the temptation to participate in corruption and conceal the crime, said he has made his family, Plateau State, and Nigeria proud with his actions.

Lalong said he was not surprised because the action of CSP Itse is in tandem with the Plateau spirit of diligence, honesty, patriotism, and hard work.

While urging him to keep the spirit and also continue to mentor others, the Governor said by this singular act, the career of the officer is very bright in his quest to serve the nation.

He also urges other officers and Nigerians in all sectors to emulate the exemplary conduct of CSP Itse which is one of the tonics that Nigeria requires to be transformed.
