Nigeria Police is number one bribe-takers

Men of the Nigeria Police have been named the number one bribe-taking public officials in Nigeria.
A report presented by the CLEEN Foundation in Abuja on Tuesday also said corruption was on the increase in the country.
The report, which was presented by the Head of Foundation, Mr. Innocent Chukwuma, said apart from the Police, other public officials that take bribe were those serving in immigration, customs, prison and road safety.
Chukwuma said, “The findings of the survey indicate that there is an upsurge in bribery and corruption among government officials in Nigeria.
“Nearly one out of every respondents attested paying bribe or being asked to pay bribe by government officials before services could be rendered to them.
“In terms of trend, demand has increased from 20 per cent in 2011 to 24 per cent in 2012.
“Among public officials who demand for bribes, the police (70 per cent), immigration (66 per cent), custom (65 per cent), prison officials (52 per cent) and road safety officials (51 per cent) were the highest.”
