The Nigeria Police Force has said it has commenced an investigation into a suspected cop smoking from a Shisha pot in a viral video.
On Sunday, the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, in a statement, said the investigation would help to establish the authenticity of the video and the true identity of the man.
The statement reads, “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.
“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.
It further reads “Meanwhile, members of the public with useful information that can assist the police investigation are enjoined to provide the same via the following: [email protected], or DM on our social media platforms.”
