A police officer attached to the Kano government took his professional responsibility further last Saturday: he voted in the APC fragmented congress in Kano.
The action didn’t sit well with the police authorities as the picture of him voting went viral online.
The Nigerian Police Force has ordered a probe of the officer.
So far, the cop has been identified as Bashir Mohammed, part of the security details of Kano factional chairman Abdullahi Abbas, an ally of Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje.
In a statement, Police Public Relations Officer in charge of Zone One in Kano, Abubakar Zayyanu, said the Assistant Inspector General (AIG) in charge of the zone, Abubakar Sadiq Bello, has ordered the investigation of the officer.
The AIG, according to the statement, described the act as unprofessional.
“In view of this seemingly unprofessional conduct of the inspector, the AIG has referred the matter to the Zonal X-Squad for investigation,” the statement read.
“If the inspector is found to have committed a disciplinary offence by this action, the appropriate disciplinary measure will be taken against him.”
The AIG assured the general public that further development on the matter will be communicated.
