Police, Nigeria’s number one bribe-takers – Report


Men of the Nigeria Police have been named the number one bribe-taking public officials in Nigeria.

A report presented by the CLEEN Foundation in Abuja on Tuesday also said corruption was on the increase in the country.

The report, which was presented by the Head of Foundation, Mr. Innocent Chukwuma, said apart from the Police, other public officials that take bribe were those serving in immigration, customs, prison and road safety.

Chukwuma said, “The findings of the survey indicate that there is an upsurge in bribery and corruption among government officials in Nigeria.

“Nearly one out of every respondents attested paying bribe or being asked to pay bribe by government officials before services could be rendered to them.

“In terms of trend, demand has increased from 20 per cent in 2011 to 24 per cent in 2012.

“Among public officials who demand for bribes, the police (70 per cent), immigration (66 per cent), custom (65 per cent), prison officials (52 per cent) and road safety officials (51 per cent) were the highest.”

The survey added that bribery and corruption among public officials such tax officials, court personnel, anti-corruption agencies were higher in states like Kebbi(61 per cent), Ebonyi(50 per cent), Kwara(45 per cent), Ondo(42 per cent), Edo(42 per cent), Sokoto(34 per cent) and Gombe(34 per cent).

The survey claimed that the lowest were recorded in Taraba, Adamawa and Kaduna states, which were 10 per cent each.

It was stated at the presentation that government insincerity was the major constraint against anti-corruption agencies.

Others constraints, according to the survey, were lack of funds and facilities, corruption on the part of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission and the Independent Corrupt practices and other related offences Commission, weak and corrupt judiciary.

It was also noted at the survey presentation that robbery was on the increase in the country.

When compared to robbery incidents that occured in the country in 2011, the survey, which was carried out nationwide between April and May 2012, indicated that Edo State recorded the highest of robberies in the country.

It was followed by Anambra and Ondo state, while Jigawa and Kwara states were among the least in robbery with four and two per cent respectively.

The CLEEN boss also said the survey indicated that South-South was more prone to other armed violence other than robbery.

The presentation, which was attended by  representatives of many organisations, had a Commissioner of Police, Mr. C.D. Oki, in attendance.
