Police investigate viral video of “uniformed” officer smoking shisha


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.

In a statement, Force Public Relations Officer Force Headquarters, Abuja, DCP Frank Mba, said the investigation would, among 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,” Mba said.

The Police spokesman urged members of the public with useful information that could assist police investigations to provide same via the following; [email protected], or DM on our social media platforms.
