Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Authorities of the Nigeria Police Force have approved the demotion of Isaac Mathew attached to Ebonyi State Police Command from Corporal to Constable.

Stonix News has reported that the officer was caught in a viral TikTok video on May 7, 2022, dressed in full police uniform while singing, dancing and brandishing an AK47 rifle in praise of a secret confraternity.

His demotion followed the outcome of the Orderly Room Trial of the Matthew and a review of the recommended punishment for the offences of Discreditable Conduct, Promoting Secret Cults and violation of the Social Media Policy (SMP) of the Nigeria Police Force.

Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Sunday, said the “Force is currently looking into many other disciplinary cases of unprofessionalism and misconduct by officers in encounters with members of the public.”

According to him, “orderly room trials are ongoing and decisions reached at the end of such trials will be made known as the current police administration is committed to a transparent, accountable and proactive policing system in Nigeria.”

Adejobi quoted the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, as charging “all police officers to uphold professional ethics, discipline and the ideals of the Nigeria Police Force.”

The IGP “further charges them to be committed to self-discipline in line with the IGP’s policing agenda of ethical regeneration, restoration of professional standards, enhancement of anti-corruption drive with a view to having the desired Police institution Nigerians deserve.”
