The Nigerian police have reacted to the viral video of an officer carrying a female VIP's food tray at an event in Ilorin, Kwara state's capital.
The force described it as embarrassing while disclosing that it has summoned the officer to report at the police headquarters.
The Force Headquarters which warned its operatives attached to Very Important Persons all over the country to stop serving purposes other than protecting prominent individuals from security threats said on Wednesday, March 2 that the viral video is being probed.
Acting Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi told Punch that the police officer has been identified and summoned to Abuja.
Adejobi who refused to provide the name of the police officer said;
“He (the policeman) has been identified. He is coming to Abuja to meet us. We’ll ask question from him and take necessary action. We need to discourage such a thing because it is embarrassing the image of the Force and we can’t continue to be experiencing that kind of a thing because it is highly unprofessional.”
