By ABIRHIRE THOMAS

The Nigerian Police Force says it is aware of a video trending on social media, wherein some policemen are captured performing guard duties to a young man and encouraging him to abuse the naira.

A statement from Loui’s Edet House, signed by Force Public Relations Officer the spokesperson ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi stated that, contrary to the provisions of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Act, such a manner is demeaning to the police officers and the Nigeria Police Force.

ACP Adejobi said, “We condemn 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.”

“Steps are therefore being taken towards identifying the police officer in the said video in order to award appropriate sanctions. 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.”
