Anambra State Police CP Rewards Diligent Policewoman with N250,000 After Rejecting N500,000 Bribe


The Comissioner of Police in Anambra State, CP Aderemi Adeoye has awarded cash sum of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira N250,000 to a Policewoman serving in  Main Market Division, Onitsha.

The Policewoman, Inspector Charity Oyor  who was on traffic duty in the market on Wednesday, 23rd August, 2023, saw a shuttle bus carrying six heavy bundles of stripped armoured cable suspected to have been  stolen driving past.

She stopped the driver and inquired about the consignment from the purported owner who rather than explain how he came to be in possession of the cable offered her bribe which she rejected.  

The Police Inspector  put a call across to her DPO? Superintendent Joy Chidinma Ikpeama who led Police Personnel to the scene and arrested the suspect. The cable was impounded and taken to the Station for investigation.

At the station the suspect again offered sum of N500,000 to be allowed to go. This was rejected by the officers. The DPO promptly briefed  the Commissioner of Police on the arrest and recovery.

The Commissioner of Police then ordered  State CID Awka to take over the case for investigation with a view to unravelling where the used cables  came from.

At the presentation of the cash award  in his office today, Friday 25th August, 2023 the Commissioner of Police commended the DPO for providing good leadership and Inspector Charity Oyor for her uprightness. He urged all Personnel in the Command to always uphold ethics of the profession by refusing to be compromised in the discharge of their duties.

The DPO thanked the Commissioner of Police for leading by personal example and said her personnel were inspired by his leadership.

Inspector Charity Oyor promised to rededicate herself to the job she loves so much and thanked the Commissioner of Police for his generosity.

Also present at the brief ceremony was the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Administration, DCP Peter Umoru Ozigi.

She is from Umungwa Obowo , Imo State
