Penpushing reports that the Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi made this known in a statement, and gave identity of the alleged officer as Corporal Matthew Isaac, attached to the Ebonyi State Police Command.
The statement said the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has condemned the unruly conduct of the police officer, which the authorities said was a clear action aimed to portray the force in bad light, which will not be condoned.
