Abstract

This study was designed to investigate the relationship between the attributes of transformational leadership; charisma, individualized consideration and intellectual stimulation, and the perception of corruption in the Nigeria police force. By using quantitative methodological approach to examine these dimensions, data was collected by administering questionnaires on 156 respondents. Descriptive, correlation and regression analyses were expended in the examination and the result showed that while transformational leadership practices is perceived to be high in the Nigeria police force, the perceived level of corruption remained high too. Charisma and intellectual stimulation consistently have positive influence on corruption. Though in varying degree, the results indicate a correlation between the three attributes of transformational leadership and the dimensions of corruption. These findings were discussed in the specific contexts of transformational leadership theory, organizational practices and police corruption, while its practical implications for organizational development, police reform and crusade against police corruption in the Nigeria police were underscored.
