The Lagos State Police Command has criticised the actions of a driver who was shown in a viral video appealing for aid from a female officer.
As he tries to transport her to an unknown place, the anonymous police officer dragged the steering wheel with her.
The footage sparked debate online, with Nigerians wondering how the police officer got into the car and what the driver’s intentions were.
The viral video shows a female police officer imploring the driver to let her out of the car.
She said, “Help me, they are carrying me to where I don’t know.”
In response to the viral video, Lagos State Command spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin warned that, regardless of the officer’s unprofessional behavior, kidnapping an officer on duty is a criminal.
According to Hundeyin, an inquiry into the event has commenced, and the driver has been identified as a suspect.
Hundeyin in a post on Twitter wrote, “Irrespective, I repeat, irrespective of whatever the police officer must have done (un)professionally, kidnapping anyone, especially a law enforcement officer on duty, is a felony.
“This man is already a suspect. An investigation has commenced.”
