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.”
