The Inspector General of Police, M.A. Adamu has ordered an investigations into the viral video showing a man wearing what appears to be a Nigeria Police “uniform” smoking shisha.
In a signal by the top Police Chief, “the investigation will amongst other things seek to forensically establish the authenticity of the video, the true identity of the man in the uniform – whether he is in fact a policeman, an impostor or an actor in a movie scene.
“However, while not being prejudicial to the ongoing investigations, it is necessary to state that the character exhibited by the man in the uniform is not a true reflection of who we are as a regimented law enforcement agency – our trainings, discipline, norms and tradition.
“Meanwhile, members of the public with useful information that can assist police investigations are enjoined to provide same via the following; [email protected], or DM on our social media platforms.”
