The Nigeria Police on Wednesday denied being on top of the corruption index.
Police spokesman Jimoh Moshood described the report of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) as false.
He said: “We have not seen such report and we cannot react to what we have not seen but what I know is that the Nigerian Police Force is not corrupt.
“Corruption is a personal thing and Nigeria Police Force is not a corrupt institution and it is not for anybody to have made such allegation.
”The allegations are mischievous because it is not empirical and we distance ourselves from such and we want all Nigerians to condemn such.
”In fact a lot of changes have been introduced into the Force to ensure that we are accountable to the people”, Nation quoted him as saying.
“Such a report is unacceptable by the Force and we want everybody to disregard such because the Nigeria Police is not corrupt.
“The allegation is not empirical and it cannot stand any test or proof. It is misleading,” he added.
