Corporal Isaac was attached to the Ebonyi State Police Command.

“The act of the officer in question, which is clearly calculated to portray the Nigeria Police Force negatively, is a discreditable conduct in line with the provisions of the first schedule to regulation 370 of the police regulations,” Mr. Adejobi said.
