To uphold the highest standards of integrity and accountability within the Nigeria Police Force, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, has initiated disciplinary proceedings, demonstrating a commitment to swift and decisive justice.

These disciplinary measures underscore the Nigeria Police Force’s zero-tolerance stance toward any form of misconduct or corruption among its ranks.
