Friends and associates of a Superintendent of Police (SP), Ibrahim Ezekiel Sini, who declined a bribe of N150 million from a Lagos businessman and founder of Platform Capital, Akintoye Akindele, on Friday honoured him in Abuja.

One of the organisers of the event, CEO of Vegas Homes, Prince Chukwuemeka Asudeogu said SP Sini’s conduct remains exemplary and should inspire others and Nigerians to note that the Nigerian Police Force have men of integrity and good conduct.

“SP Sini’s actions have not only brought honour to himself and the Nigeria Police Force but have also inspired countless others to stand firm against corruption and uphold the highest ethical standards. His integrity serves as a beacon of hope, demonstrating that even in challenging circumstances, it is possible to remain true to one’s values.

“This honour is aimed at not only appreciating the laudable conduct of Superintendent Ibrahim Sini, but to demonstrate that society appreciates individuals of integrity and good conduct.

“We want to also show that the Nigerian Police Force have officers that are professional, above board and with the right incentive engage in meaningful policing and be worthy examples”.

While commending Sini’s character, he said that the hosting was just one of other means of appreciation they have in store for him.

“This is just the beginning of what we have in store for his commendable conduct. To reject N150 million takes discipline, the fear of God and professionalism. All these are attributes Officer Ibrahim has demonstrated.

“I enjoin my fellow Nigerians to support the efforts of the police so they can better police our country”, Okoye said.

Akindele, who is remanded in Kuje prison by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Duport Midstream Company who was alleged to have offered police a bribe of N150 million to pervert the course of investigation in a petition against him.

The businessman was said in the charge to have dropped N50 million as part of the alleged bribe to the IGP’s team of investigators led by Ibrahim Ezekiel Sini.

According to the charge, the bribe was offered to allow police to permit him to escape abroad and to write a favourable report for him after the investigation.

Akindele was arrested in respect of a petition submitted to the Police Chief by Summit Oil International Limited and was alleged to have swindled the firm of $5, 636, 397 and another N73, 543, 764.

Asked to comment on why he rejected the huge amount of money, SP Sini said he preferred to have peace of mind, remain truthful to the mandate and core values of the Nigerian Police Force and maintain the integrity of his family name.

FCT Police Commissioner, Benneth Igweh who presented an award of a plot of land on behalf of the organizers said SP Sini’s conduct has brought pride to the Nigerian Police Force.
