Police: Misau’s bombshell deserves Buhari’s action

The integrity of the Police and their capacity to discharge their statutory responsibility have been brought to the fore with Misau ’ s allegation that the police collect as much as N10 billion monthly from corporate bodies and the rich for the special security provided them.
This translates to N120 billion per annum , much of it mainly from oil companies and banks . But the most intriguing aspect of this revelation is that there is no record of such funds , let alone how they are spent. Other allegations include promotion racketeering , where a junior officer needs to provide N 2. 5 million to the syndicate to bag a special elevation , deserved or not .
It does not stop at that. According to Misau , appointments to senior positions like Mobile Police Commander and Police Commissioner have also been compromised. They attract between N10 million and N 15 million. “ Some have attained ranks such as commissioner of police without operational experience ; and this has led to a display of lack of capacity when the security of such states comes under threat, ” Misau stressed. Besides incompetence , low morale and indiscipline are natural consequences of the abuse .
