Police Summons Officers For Escorting Adamawa Students’ Union President
The Nigerian Police Force has summoned two police Constables who were recently in a viral video escorting a Student Union president in Adamawa State.
It could be recalled that a video emerged last week where men of the Police Force were seen escorting the vehicle of a Students’ Union president in Adamawa State University.
Describing the officers’ actions as unacceptable and unprofessional conduct in a statement released on Monday, the Force disclosed that the officers have been summoned for appropriate disciplinary actions.
It was learnt that the officers, who were attached to Jimeta Divisional Police Command, were deployed to the school to maintain peace and security during the convention and electoral process organized by the National Union of Adamawa State Students (NUADSS) on 4th and 5th of September, 2023.
The statement read, “Following a recent incident involving two Constables escorting a Student Union president in Adamawa State, their actions were unacceptable and do not represent the values of our Force. The officers, who are attached to Jimeta Divisional Police Command, along with their superiors, have been summoned to the Force Headquarters for appropriate action.
“It's important to note that they were deployed to maintain peace and security during the convention and electoral process organized by the National Union of Adamawa State Students (NUADSS) on 4th and 5th of September, 2023. However their actions were not in line with the purpose for which they were deployed. They have both been referred to the Force Provost for further disciplinary actions. We are committed to maintaining professionalism and upholding the dignity of the Nigeria Police Force.”
