Policeman reveals reason for rejecting N150 million bribe

Superintendent of Police Ibrahim Sini stated that he refused a N150 million bribe offered by Lagos businessman Akintoye Akindele to maintain peace of mind. Akindele, who was arraigned at the Federal High Court in Abuja in August 2023 and remanded in Kuje correctional center, had attempted to bribe Sini to allow him to flee abroad and receive a favorable report.

Sini, who led the investigation against Akindele, shared his experience at a dinner organized to honor him. He expressed gratitude to the organizers and explained his decision, emphasizing that he preferred to have money that allowed him to sleep peacefully at night, without the burden of guilt or fear. He stressed the importance of doing what is right for himself, the Nigeria Police, and the country.

During the event, Sini was awarded a plot of land in Abuja. Federal Capital Territory Commissioner of Police, Benneth Igweh, praised Sini’s integrity, highlighting how his conduct brought pride to the Nigeria Police Force. Sini also advised the youth to uphold their integrity and not compromise it for any reason.
