The Inspector-General of the Nigerian Police Force (NPF), Ibrahim Idris, has ordered an immediate investigation into the unfortunate personal comments purportedly made by a Police officer, named Inusa Saidu Biu, on his Facebook account.
Spokesperson of the Force, Jimoh O. Moshood, pointed out that the attention of the NPF was drawn to an online publication on HOTGISTNAIJA on Wednesday, credited to a yet-to-be-identified Policeman’s Facebook account on the above caption “Policeman threatens to kill 200 Nigerians if Buhari dies.”
He noted in a statement that, “Policemen are under obligation not to make unauthorized public comments. It is pertinent to state that the Nigeria Police Force is a highly disciplined organization with full observation and compliance with
professional ethics, decorum, respect for proper behavior and good manners within the ranks of personnel of the Force; the comment, therefore, is a distraction and absolutely a shadowy imagination of the writer, and should be disregarded and discountenance in its entirety.”
He however assured the public of the Force’s renewed determination and commitment to maintain law and order as well as the protection of life and property.
