The Nigerian Police says it has commenced investigations into a man wearing what appears to be a Police “uniform” smoking shisha in viral video.
The man was caught on camera in Police uniform heavily smoking shisha from two pipes with what appeared like spirit beside to “step down”.
Reacting on its official Twitter handle Police said, on Sunday, that it hopes in the investigation to, amongst other things, forensically establish authenticity of the video, the true identity of the man in the uniform, whether he is in fact a policeman or an impostor, or an actor in a movie scene.
The tweet reads:
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; email@example.com, or DM on our social media platforms.”
