The police orderly to Titi Abubakar, the wife of the presidential candidate for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, will be penalised for carrying her boss’ bag during an event in Abuja, the force’s headquarters says.
Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, tweeted in response to a user who condemned the policewoman for carrying Titi’s handbag while she was delivering a speech.
The tweet read: “When a private citizen can turn our uniform force member into her maid, why won’t the police forget their primary duty and only dance to the tune of the elites? @BenHundeyin is this how it’s supposed to be?”
In response, Adejobi said the police have launched action against the orderly, and would also reach out to her principal, Titi.
“This is not acceptable,” he affirmed. “We have commenced necessary action on this. We will fish her out and get across to the principal. The AIG Special Protection Unit has been contacted to assist us get the woman police. Gradually, we will sanitise the system.”
“How can an orderly be carrying bag for her madam, I am sure the madam will have a PA, and that is the PAs job, it’s an absurdity and this is condemned in its totality,” he added.
