Hundeyin made this known in a chat with Daily Trust on its Twitter Spaces on Wednesday.

He said, “In every organisation, you would have those officers that would always undermine the efforts of the organisation. I’ve heard about officers working in cahoot with internet fraudsters. These officers are treated worse than the internet fraudsters.

“If a law enforcement officer engages in a crime, he receives more punishment than an ordinary citizen because he is expected to know more.”

The PPRO said anytime such offenders were caught, they were dealt with severely.
