The drunk policeman who appeared in a viral video earlier today has been arrested by the Police.
In the video which was captured at the CBN Junction in Abuja, the officer was seen in an inebriated state and didn’t seem to be aware of his immediate environment.
His rifle was reportedly taken away from him by an unknown person as reported in the video.
The FCT Police Command has however identified, arrested and taken into custody the Police Inspector.
A statement by ASP Mariam Yusuf, FCT Police Spokesperson said,
“In view of the above, the Commissioner of Police wishes to unequivocally state that the behaviour portrayed by the Policeman in the video does not depict the standard discipline of the Nigeria Police Force.
“While urging residents to remain calm, the Command wishes to reiterate its unflinching commitment to the protection of lives and property in the Federal Capital Territory.”
Furthermore, the Commissioner of Police CP. Bala Ciroma has ordered that the Police officer be subjected to psychological and medical evaluation, preparatory to the commencement of disciplinary actions against him.
