The Acting Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, on Thursday urged the public to complement the efforts of the Force in fighting crime.
Abubakar made the plea while addressing a cross section of residents at the conference hall of the Oyo State Police Command in Ibadan.
While admitting that the police had some bad eggs, he urged residents to report such corrupt officers using his direct telephone numbers and email addresses which he made public.
Abubakar, who warned that officers caught in acts of corruption would be charged to court, said the era of harassing and molesting innocent people was over.
"Using the police to settle land matters must end. Henceforth, officers should not attend to such and they should let complainants go to court," he said.
He, however, said officers would now be well kitted while vehicles would be bought for effective operations.
The top serving and retired police officers, leaders of religious organisations and members of the business community were in attendance.
