The Zone 1 Command of the Nigeria Police Force, Kano, on Tuesday said its attention had been drawn to a trending picture on the social media, of a police inspector casting his vote at the Kano State congress of the All Progressives Congress alongside his principal, the state party chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas.
A statement by the Zonal Public Relations Officer, DSP Abubakar Ambursa, added that the inspector had been identified as Bashir Mohammed of the Special Protection Unit, Base 1, Kano.
According to the statement, the Inspector is attached to the Government House, Kano, from where he was deployed to work with Abbas as a security aide.
“In view of this seemingly unprofessional conduct of the inspector, the AIG (Assistant Inspector General of Police) has referred the matter to the Zonal X-Squad for investigation.
“If the inspector is found to have committed the offence, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against him,” the statement said.
The police assured members of the public that further development on the matter would be communicated.
