The Complaint Response Unit of the Nigeria Police Force has resolved 324 cases out of a total of 405 complaints made against the police by members of the public between July 1 and September 30, 2016.

Fifty-one cases reported during the period were found to be false while 30 cases are pending, a report released on Thursday in Abuja by the Officer in charge of the CRU, Acting ACP Abayomi Shogunle, stated.

The CRU said it recovered N2.75m bribe from an Assistant Commissioner of Police, serving in one of the state commands in the South-East, after a complaint was made to the unit through a telephone call.


The police stated that the money was recovered from the ACP after the case was referred to the X-Squad for necessary action in line with the directive by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, that the X-Squad be integrated into the CRU responding agents.

Findings indicated that the errant senior officer had been referred to the Police Service Commission for disciplinary action.
