The Inspector General of Police IGP, Usman Alkali Baba has presented a certificate of Award to Nassarawa, Divisional Police Officer, SP Daniel Itse Amah for rejecting the sum of Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (USD 200,000) offered him as a bribe in a case of alleged armed robbery.
In a letter containing the commendation, SP Daniel was hailed for exhibiting sound professionalism leading to the arrest of Ali Zaki, a Kano-based legal practitioner and some Police officers.
Our correspondent gathered that investigations by Operatives led by SP Daniel led to the arrest of the suspected armed robbery syndicate in Kano.
