The Nigeria Police Force has condemned the unprofessional conduct of some policemen performing guard duties to a young man and encouraging him to abuse the naira.

Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Muyiwa Adejobi in a statement on X, said “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.”

He said the police condemned 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.

“We appreciate all well-meaning Nigerians for bringing this to public knowledge and assure them that the corrective and punitive steps being taken will be brought to a conclusive and definitive end,” Adejobi said.
