The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Nigeria Police Force have agreed to partner to rid Anambra State of corruption and other crimes.

This agreement was reached when the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 13, Mr. Tony Olufu, received the ICPC Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner (RACC), Anambra State, Mr. Godwin Oche, in his office at Ukpo, Anambra State, and stated that the Police was ready to work with the Commission to achieve its mandate.

While speaking on insecurity matters in the state, Mr. Olufu assured that the Police was working hard to ensure the security of lives and properties.

He said, “We are believing firmly that if we are consistent in our efforts, we will achieve the goal, we are very hopeful that at the end of the day, we will get there.”

Earlier, Mr. Oche informed the AIG of the several collaborations between the two agencies, noting that it had yielded fruitful results.

He further added the ICPC Anambra State office being new, would benefit greatly from the partnership.
