Impostors, Name Droppers To Face Consequences, NPF Warns

The Nigeria Police Force has reiterated that dire consequences await impostors, name droppers, and perpetrators of other unlawful acts, whose activities undermine trust in the Force.

The warning was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

TheFact Daily reports that the warning had become necessary following concerns about recent reports of the activities of certain individuals who are operating as middlemen, acting as negotiators on behalf of individuals involved in criminal activities currently in police custody.

These individuals, whom the Force tags as impostors and name droppers have been exploiting the names of high-ranking police officers, including that of the Inspector-General of Police, to intimidate and coerce others.

The NPF, while noting that the practice poses a significant threat to the integrity of the country’s justice system, urged Nigerians to be vigilant and exercise discernment when approached by anyone using the names of senior police officers.

The statement also warned members of the ranks of the Force “who may consider colluding with these middlemen to compromise the standards of the Force to refrain from such actions immediately”, adding that any officer found engaging in such activities would face severe consequences.

“The Nigeria Police Force maintains a strict zero-tolerance policy towards any actions that could tarnish our reputation or compromise the administration of justice”, the statement read, while affirming its commitment to upholding the highest standards of integrity and professionalism within the Nigeria Police Force.
