The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has ordered the investigation into an alleged statement credited to a policeman, Inusa Biu, on his Facebook account.
The Force Spokesman, CSP Jimoh Moshood, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday.
Moshood stated that policemen were under an obligation not to make unauthorised public comments.
He said Nigeria Police Force is a high discipline organisation with full observation and compliance with professional ethics and decorum.
The spokesman said that the comment was a distraction “and absolutely a shadowy imagination of the writer and should be disregarded.”
Biu had in the alleged facebook posting vowed to kill 200 Nigerians if President Muhammadu Buhari dies in office.
He assured the public of police renewed determination and commitment to maintain law and order. (NAN)
The Policeman who is believed to be serving in Bauchi State had in the alleged facebook posting vowed to kill 200 Nigerians if President Muhammadu Buhari dies in office as first reported by an online publication HOTGISTNAIJA on Wednesday with the caption “Policeman threatens to kill 200 Nigerians if Buhari dies.”
The statement which went viral on social media was widely condemned with calls that the officer should be punished by the Police authorities.
