Police Launch Manhunt For Rich Kid, Police Escorts

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has said that it was going after a young man in a viral video guarded by some policemen, who were seen encouraging him to abuse the Naira notes.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the action of the Policemen amounted to unprofessional conduct, which portrayed servitude and all those involved will be made to face the law.

Part of the statement signed by ACP Adejobi on Saturday stated that, “we are aware of a video trending on social media, where some policemen could be seen performing guard duties to a young man and encouraging him to abuse the naira, contrary to the provisions of the CBN Act, in such a manner demeaning to the Police Officer and the Nigeria Police Force at large.

“We condemn the content of the video in its entirety as well as all forms of unethical, demeaning, un-dignifying, and unprofessional acts of its officers, especially ones that subject them to servitude.

“Steps are, therefore, being taken towards identifying the police officer in the said video in order to award appropriate sanctions. In this regard, the young man in the video is hereby called upon to present himself to the Nigeria Police Force Intelligence Department nearest to him, or contact the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, for proper investigation into the circumstances of the video.

  1. I will advise the Nigeria Police to re- recruit their members so as to do away the bad eggs in their midst. A lot of those still serving are giving the force bad name, hence my suggestion to filter the system.
