Nigerian Police demote officer seen in viral video singing, dancing and brandishing rifle in praise of cult group

Isaac Mathew’s sentence of being demoted from Corporal to Constable has been authorized by the Nigeria Police Force.

On May 7, 2022, an officer with the Ebonyi State Police Command was caught in a viral TikTok video dressed in full police gear singing, dancing, and wielding an AK47 rifle in honor of a secret confraternity while singing, dancing, and brandishing an AK47 rifle.

The decision was made after the outcome of the concerned officer’s Orderly Room Trial and a review of the recommended punishment for the offences of Discreditable Conduct, Promoting Secret Cults, and violation of the Nigeria Police Force’s Social Media Policy (SMP), according to CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the force’s spokesman.

“The Force is currently looking into many other disciplinary cases of unprofessionalism and misconduct by officers in encounters with members of the public,” the statement read.

“Meanwhile, 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

“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, therefore charges all police officers to uphold professional ethics, discipline and the ideals of the Nigeria Police Force

“He 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.”
