by Christiana Gokyo, Jos

PLATEAU STATE – The Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong, has commended a citizen of the State, Police Officer CSP Daniel Itse Amah, who was recently honoured by Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) for rejecting $200,000 bribe from robbers.

CSP Daniel Itse Amah, an indigene of Jos East local government area of the State, joined the Nigerian Police Force as a Cadet Inspector in 2002 and is currently serving as a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Bompai Police Station in the Nasarawa local government area of Kano State.

He is said he rejected the bribe in the course of investigating a robbery matter, which was reported to the Police Division in Kano State where he was the DPO.

Governor Lalong, while congratulating the officer for his “honesty and patriotism” to reject the temptation to participate in corruption and conceal crime, said the officer has made his family, Plateau State and Nigeria proud by his actions. 

Lalong said he was not surprised because the action of CSP Itse is in tandem with the Plateau spirit of diligence, honesty, patriotism and hardwork. 

While urging him to keep the spirit and also continue to mentor others, the governor said “By this singular act, the career of the officer is very bright in his quest to serve the nation.”

He also urged other officers and Nigerians in all sectors to emulate the exemplary conduct of CSP Itse, which is one of the tonics that Nigeria requires to be transformed.
