The Police is investigating a viral video showing a man wearing what appeared to be a Nigeria Police “uniform” smoking shisha.
Shisha is a way of smoking tobacco through a bowl with a hose or tube joined on. The tube has a mouthpiece that the smoker uses to breath in the smoke.
Police Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, said in a statement on Sunday that the investigation will establish the authenticity of the video, the identity of the man, to ascertain if he is a policeman, an impostor or an actor.
“It is necessary to state that the character exhibited by the man in the uniform is not a true reflection of who we are as a regimented law enforcement agency, our training, discipline, norms and tradition”, Mba said.
