The Nigeria Police Force has commenced investigations into the viral video showing a man wearing what appears to be a Nigeria Police “uniform” smoking shisha.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Deputy Commissioner of Police Frank Mba, confirmed the development on the Twitter handle of the Nigeria Police.
Mba said 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.
He added: “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: firstname.lastname@example.org, or DM on our social media platforms.”
