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.
According to a statement on sunday on the Nigeria Police Force Official Twitter handle,the investigation will amongst other things seek to forensically establish the authenticity of the video.
It will also seek the true identity of the man in the uniform to know if he is truly 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.”
The statement however called on members of the public with useful information that can assist police investigations to provide them via the following; email@example.com, or DM on its social media platforms.
