Inspector General Ibrahim Idris, last week, dismissed four police officers attached to the command of the Ijebu-Ode area in Ogun State for extortion. 

The officers assigned are Mufutau Olaosun, Adebayo Temitope, Bakare Taiwo and Adesoye Ayokunlehin. They were found guilty of extorting N50,000 from a man arrested on falsified charges.

A statement by Deputy Police Commissioner Abayomi Sogunle, who heads the Police Public Complaints Rapid Response Unit, stated that the men were fired after being found guilty in a trial ordered in the Ijebu-Ode Command Headquarters. 

They were accused of discreditable conduct and bribery practices as part of the first timetable of Cape Police laws and regulations. P19 laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004.

Shogunle said the money had been recovered by the four dismissed officers and returned to the exploited man. Unlike the enraged celebration that welcomed the arrest of Mr. 

Chukwudi Onuamadike alias Evans, a development like this provides a good ground for whitening the battered image of the Nigerian police. Indeed, the news is a sniff!

The great victim of a majority of police officers, whether in stations, police stations, checkpoints or during patrol, is the last experience of someone who meets the unfortunate who want to go home . 

But while the attitude layout of some of the police force's men can not be isolated from the corruption that permeates the entire training, identified cases of good leadership like this have positive impacts on the police, It is expected that more authentic and conscious approaches, such as these, are often adopted in the general interest and image of the police force.
