On Saturday, Nov 28, at CBN Junction, close to Abuja Police Command Headquarters, a member of the Nigerian police force identified as Garba Salisu was seen on duty drunken even as he was carrying a loaded firearm.
Passersby who saw the drunk officer allegedly seized his gun while another poured water on him to help revive him.
In a video shared online, people are seen surrounding the police officers and commenting about the fact that he was inebriated already at that time of the day.
A man is seen pouring a sachet of water on the policeman’s head.
In the video, voices could be heard berating the policeman for being drunk at a time he was supposed to still be on duty while another expressed regret that the officers behaviour automatically makes him a threat to the society.
