The Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba has ordered the immediate arrest of police Corporal who was caught singing , dancing and brandishing his riffle in praises of a confraternity in a video that went viral.
CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Spokesperson said in a statement over the weekend that, the officer has been “identified as Corporal Matthew Isaac, attached to the Ebonyi State Police Command.”
The act of the officer in question, which is clearly calculated to portray the NPF negatively, according to the Baba is a “discreditable conduct in line with the provisions of the First Schedule to Regulation 370 of the Police Regulations.
“His actions equally violated the provisions of the NPF Social Media Policy (SMP), penal laws, and other extant laws regulating the conduct and discipline of all Police officers.”
The IGP has directed the Commissioner of Police in charge of Ebonyi State to detail the Command’s OC Provost to hand over the erring officer to the Force Provost Marshall for necessary disciplinary actions.
The IGP further warned officers to ensure total compliance with the laws guiding the Force as any breach would be severely sanctioned.
