‘He Has Been Sanctioned’ — Police Affirm as Viral Footage of Drunk Officer Resurfaces 2 Years After

A viral video showing a drunk police officer has been in circulation since 2020 and the officer has equally been sanctioned, says Olumuyiwa Adejobi, spokesman for Nigeria Police Force.

The officer, as depicted in the video, was being jeered by some kids while he sat unconscious.

Adejobi in a press statement said: “The Nigeria Police Force wishes to state emphatically that the Mobile Police officer captured in a drunken state sitting on the ground and being mocked by some children in a viral video currently trending on social media, had been appropriately sanctioned for the unprofessional and unethical conduct displayed in the video.

“Recall that the video trended in the year 2020, and the Force took diligent steps to ensure the Inspector was disciplined in line with extant laws regulating the Force, which led to his demobilization from the Police Mobile Force and other disciplinary sanctions as contained in letter CH:5660/DOPS/PMF/FHQ/ABJ/VOL.78/116 of 11th December 2020.

“It is however appalling to find the same video being trended for clout without recourse to existing facts.”

The spokesman further called the force’s operatives to maintain professionalism and uphold ethical conduct.

“The police, while charging officers to maintain proper, professional, and ethical conduct in and out of the uniform, calls on all and sundry to discountenance the video and its content as it serves no genuine purpose,” Adejobi added.
