The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) wishes to address the ambiguity surrounding a signal that has been in circulation on social media, purportedly originating from MOPOL 45 FHQ ABJ, ordering the removal of police aides from certain top politicians and their relatives.
CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, Force PRO, revealed this in a statement on Monday.
The Police hereby unequivocally clarify 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, which is highly irregular, as a signal of this nature would typically be signed by an Assistant Commissioner of Police, who heads such formations, and not a higher-ranking officer.
The Acting Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has taken immediate notice, ordered a thorough investigation into its source, and assured that appropriate action will be taken against those responsible for its creation and dissemination.
