Police to punish officer seen guarding young man in viral video

By Moses Okorie

The National Headquarters of the Nigerian Police Force, NPF, has expressed great displeasure and called on a yet-to-be identified police officer seen in a viral video to immediately turn himself up for further investigation and proper disciplinary action over unprofessional conduct.

In a statement issued by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Saturday, the police command said it condemned the content of the video in its entirety as well as all forms of unethical, demeaning, un-dignifying, and unprofessional acts of its officers, especially ones that subject them to servitude.

He said the police has initiated steps to identifying and disciplining officers seen in the video, invite the young man for questioning, saying where some policemen could be seen performing guard duties to a young man and encouraging him to abuse the naira, contrary to the provisions of the CBN Act, in such a manner demeaning to the police officer and the Nigeria Police Force at large.

“In this regard, the young man in the video is hereby called upon to present himself to the Nigeria Police Force Intelligence Department nearest to him, or contact the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, for proper investigation into the circumstances of the video.

“We appreciate all well-meaning Nigerians for bringing this to public knowledge and assure them that the corrective and punitive steps being taken will be brought to a conclusive and definitive end”, the police said.
