Nigerian Police reacts to viral video of uniformed man smoking shisha

The Nigerian police has reacted to the viral video of a man smoking shisha in public while wearing police uniform.

The video was circulated with a caption claiming the man is a police officer.

Reacting to the video, the Nigerian police promised to investigate to find out if it is indeed a police officer, a skit/movie scene, or a civilian dressed in police uniform. They promised to take action after the investigation and asked members of the public with information to reach out.

The Nigerian police tweeted: “RE: Viral video of a man in Police “uniform” smoking shisha – Police Commence Investigations 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.

“Meanwhile, members of the public with useful information that can assist police investigations are enjoined to provide same via the following; pressforabuja@police.gov.ng, or DM on our social media platforms.
