Policemen In Nigeria Are Corrupt Because Of Fear – IG
“In dealing with corruption, it has to be a carrot and stick approach. I don’t want to start accusing my men that they are corrupt. But corruption is borne out of the fear of the future,” he stated.
“For instance, somebody who has put in 35 years of service and he is going to leave and is not sure of where he is going to be accommodated, he is not sure whether he will be able to train his children.
“He is not sure that his terminal benefits will be able to sustain him, then, his temptation to be corrupt will be very, very high.
“Therefore, I owe them a moral duty and obligation to make sure that I put things in place to be able to mitigate against those moral tendencies to be corrupt,” Arase stressed.
