The Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Paul Odama, has ordered the arrest of a drunk police officer in the command identified as Stephen Yohanna.
Yohanna, in a video which was seen by our correspondent, peed and excreted in his uniform while being held by two of his colleagues who were also in their uniforms.
The face of a third officer who filmed him (Yohanna) was not shown in the video.
When he was asked by the officers who held Yohanna that “Oga, should we go and drop him”, indicating the unseen police man was a superior officer, he answered “No, he (Yohanna) is still on duty.
“Leave him, let him stand. See how a Nigeria police inspector shit for body (sic). He claimed his salary is not enough for him to do anything. I want the whole world to see you and wait to see what the authorities would do about the issue,” the officer was heard saying in the viral video.
Reacting to the incident, Kwara CP, Paul Odama, said the command was ‘miffed’ over the matter describing the video as ‘highly repulsive.’
The police boss said his (Yohanna’s) case ‘is more medical than alcoholic.’
“After viewing the video, the CP swiftly directed that the policeman be identified and arrested.
“The command wishes to state that the police inspector, who is attached to Share Division in Ifelodun LGA of Kwara State, has been identified and discovered to be currently undergoing medical examination in the police clinic to ascertain the state of his mental health.
“It was observed that his case is more medical than alcoholic and the result of his medical examination will determine the next action to be taken against him.
“Consequently, the CP has directed that the inspector be put under close observation by his immediate supervisor, the Divisional Police Officer of Share Division pending the conclusion of his treatment,” Odama added in the statement signed by the PPRO, Ajayi Okasanmi.
