IGP to punish viral police officer for smoking weed on duty
The Nigeria Police Force has commenced disciplinary action against one of its officers who was allegedly captured consuming an illicit drug while on duty.
The embattled officer’s photo showing the moment he was smoking Cannabis (weed) while sitting on a chair in the Ijora area of Lagos state, went viral on Friday, April 8.
In reaction to the photo, the Acting Police Public Relations Officer, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi condemned the act, noting that he has contacted the Lagos Police Command to fish out the officer, name and shame him.
Adding that the officer will face disciplinary action from the office of the Inspector-General of Police, Adejobi, via his Twitter handle wrote:
“The police have commenced necessary action on this ugly scene. We have contacted Lagos Command to fish him out, name and shame him, and necessary disciplinary action will be taken from the office of the IGP with immediate effect.
“This is condemned in its totality as such is unpolice. It’s quite unfortunate that we can see an officer of the police, on uniform, degenerates to this level. We must kick again this to serve as a deterrent to others. Thanks. MUYIWA Adejobi.”
