Police probe cops performing guard duties to man abusing naira

The Nigeria Police Force has denounced a viral video showing officers performing guard duties for a young man and encouraging him to disrespect the naira.

This was made known in a statement by the Force Spokesperson, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Saturday.

According to the statement, the force has launched an investigation to identify and discipline the officers involved.

The police described the video as “demeaning” and “unethical” and urge the young man to come forward for questioning.

The statement read, “We are aware of a video trending on social media 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.

“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.”
