The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has commenced investigations into a viral video showing a man in police uniform smoking shisha, uncontrollably.
The viral video appeared on the social media, few days ago, as many Nigerians called on the Force to investigate the video.
Reacting to the video, Frank Mba, the police spokesperson, on Sunday, via a release on the Force Twitter handle, said the police was presently investigating to find out if the man was really a policeman, an impostor or an actor.
Mba said, “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 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.
“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.”
