Police officer seen in viral video carrying female VIP’s food tray summoned to police headquarters


The police officer who was seen in a viral video carrying a female VIP’s food tray at an event in Ilorin, Kwara state has been identified and summoned to the police headquarters.

The Police Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Muyiwa Adejobi, made this disclosure in a chat with Punch. According to him, the police officer has been identified and summoned to Abuja.

He added that the Force Headquarters has warned its operatives attached to Very Important Persons all over the country to stop serving purposes other than protecting prominent individuals from security threats, and the viral video is now being probed.

“He (the policeman) has been identified. He is coming to Abuja to meet us. We’ll ask question from him and take necessary action. We need to discourage such a thing because it is embarrassing the image of the Force and we can’t continue to be experiencing that kind of a thing because it is highly unprofessional.” He said.

The video which found its way to the internet got people talking on social media.

In the 18-seconds video, a woman presumably of high class is seen receiving greetings from another woman while her security detail (a police officer in uniform) held a plate of food and followed closely behind.

The video elicited reactions from social media users who felt it was disrespectful to the entire police force for the woman to treat the officer like a common ‘houseboy’.
