Nigerian Police debunks memo withdrawing officers from ex-Governors, VIPs
The Nigeria Police Force has debunked a signal which purportedly originated from MOPOL 45 FHQ ABJ, ordering the removal of police aides from certain top politicians and their relatives.
Olumuyiwa Adejobi [CSP] Force Public Relations Officer [FPRO] in a statement Monday afternoon says, “The Police hereby unequivocally clarifies that the signal is fake and did not emanate from the NPF or any of its formations”.
“More emphatically, the signal deviates from the Police’s telegraphic message structure and standard as the signal bears the signature of a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), which is highly irregular, as a signal of this nature would typically be signed by an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), who heads such formations, and not a higher-ranking officer”.
“The Acting Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Ph.D., NPM, has taken immediate notice and has ordered a thorough investigation into its source and assures that appropriate action will be taken against those responsible for its creation and dissemination”.
