The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) said a police officer attached to Titi Abubakar will be sanctioned for carrying her bag.
The officer was pictured carrying a handbag at the commissioning office Titi opened for her husband’s 2023 campaign.
Titi is the wife of Atiku Abubakar, former vice president, and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate.
Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi stated that officers are not expected to go against professional ethics.
Adejobi responded to a Twitter user @Fifi_Ify who said the officer was turned into a maid.
“When a private citizen can turn our uniform force member into her maid, why won’t the police forget their primary duty and only dance to the tune of the elites?”, she wrote.
The police spokesperson condemned the act he called “absurdity”, adding that it is not acceptable.
“We have commenced necessary action on this. We will fish her out and get across to the principal.
“The AIG Special Protection Unit has been contacted to assist us to get the woman police. Gradually, we will sanitize the system.
“How can an orderly carry a bag for her madam? I am sure the madam will have a PA, and that is the PA’s job”, he added.
