Lalong praises Plateau-born police officer, Itse Amah, for rejecting $200,000 bribe.

Governor Simon Bako Lalong has praised Plateau State-born police officer, CSP Daniel Itse Amah, who was recently honoured by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for rejecting a $200,000 bribe from robbers.

Amah, an indigene of Jos East Council of the state, joined the Nigerian Police Force as a Cadet Inspector in 2002 and currently serves as a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) at Bompai police station in Nasarawa Council, Kano State.

In a statement, yesterday, the Director of Press and Public Affairs to the Governor, Dr. Makut Simon Macham, quoted Lalong as saying he was not surprised because the action of Amah is in tandem with the Plateau spirit of diligence, honesty, patriotism and hard work.
