James Oppong-Boanuh, the Ghanaian Inspector-General of Police, has said the eagerness of civilians to offer policemen bribes are responsible for the immoral conduct of officers.
He disclosed this during a radio programme, Ekosii Sen, on Asempa FM on Tuesday.
The Inspector General of Police particularly said drivers break the law and offer bribes to avoid prosecution. This he said entices policemen.
Oppong-Boanuh insisted that if offenders stopped offering bribes, policemen would not be inclined to either request or accept bribes
He said, “If we all decide not to pay bribes and agree to go to court, no police officer can force his hand into your pocket.”
