The Nigeria Police Force has released a statement over a viral video showing a cop smoking from a Shisha pot.
The NPF in its statement said that it has commenced investigation which would help establish the authenticity of the video and the identity of the suspected policeman.
“The Nigeria Police Force has commenced investigation into the viral video showing a man wearing what appears to be a Nigeria Police uniform smoking Shisha. The investigation will, among other things, seek to forensically establish the authenticity of the video and the true identity of the man in the uniform, whether he is a policeman, an impostor or an actor in a movie scene,” the Police Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, said on Sunday.
“However, without being prejudicial to the ongoing investigation, 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 training, discipline, norms and tradition.
“Meanwhile, members of the public with useful information that can assist the police investigation are enjoined to provide the same via the following: firstname.lastname@example.org, or DM on our social media platforms.”
