Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission, ICPC, has honored the Itam Divisional Police Officer CSP Francis Erhabor, for rejecting two million naira bribes.
Uyo Zonal Chairman of ICPC, Shola Shodipe, who presented the award to Erhabor said the awardee was carefully selected for his track record of integrity and honesty.
He said while serving in Edo State, Erhabor refused a one point five million naira bribe as a pipeline commander and also refused a bribe of five hundred thousand from a subordinate to allow adulterated petroleum product into the state
A board member of the commission, Dr. Grace China, who represented ICPC Chairman, Professor Bolaji Owasanoye, said the essence of the award was to encourage other public servants to uphold integrity, diligence and jettison any form of graft and corruption.
Erhabor said he took a decision to imbibe honesty and eschew any form of corruption when he joined the police force 30 years ago.
