Mr Shogunle, who stated this during a sensitisation workshop for police officers ahead of September 22 Osun state’s gubernatorial election, said the monies had been given back to their owners.

According to him, over 10 officers have so far been dismissed in connection with the bribery and other unprofessional conducts.

“As a result of unprofessional conduct of officers, police authority had dismissed over 10 police officers within the last two years.”
