Police identify officer singing, praising cultism in viral video

THE Nigeria Police Force has identified one Corporal Matthew Isaac, who was seen in a viral video singing, dancing, and brandishing a rifle in praise of a particular confraternity (cult).

He is attached to the Ebonyi State Police Command.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has since condemned the unruly conduct of the Police officer.

CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, Force Public Relations Officer, in a statement said the act of the officer in question, which is clearly calculated to portray the NPF negatively, is a discreditable conduct in line with the provisions of the First Schedule to Regulation 370 of the Police Regulations.

According to him, 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 Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, 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.” He added.
