The Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, Bright Edafe, has advocated that individuals who could not justify their sources of income should be investigated and charged in court.
Edafe expressed concerns that some Nigerians feel it is wrong to question what he called the ‘suspicious wealth’ of those who cannot lay claim to any justifiable means of income.
In a post on his X handle on Sunday, the police spokesman said the nation now has cases of kidnapping, ritual killings and internet fraud.
He maintained that the police force has told its operatives to do the right thing and avoid seeing justifiable sources of income as a means to extort Nigerians.
However, Edafe opined that any arrested person who cannot justify his sources of income should be investigated and eventually charged to court if found culpable.
His words, “It is a very sad trend that people feel it’s wrong to question the suspicious wealth of persons who cannot lay claim to any justifiable means of income. We have cases of ritual killings, Kidnapping, and even internet fraud. We tell our men to do the right thing and not take it as an avenue to extort.
“However, any person arrested and can’t justify his source of income should be properly investigated and charged to court when the cockroach in his cupboard has been unveiled. Like me, hate me, I don’t mind, it’s the simple truth.” (THE PUNCH)
