An officer attached to Osun State Police Command, Sgt Onatunde Joba has been arrested for getting drunk and disgracing his uniform in a video that has since gone viral.
Police Public Relations Officer, SP Yemisi Opalola, who disclosed this on Wednesday, said that Joba is currently undergoing an orderly room trial and will be punished to serve as a deterrent to others.
The statement reads, “The Osun State Police Command in its continued efforts to rid the Command of all forms of unethical behaviours, unprofessional acts and indiscipline, has identified, arrested and detained the police officer, Sgt Onatunde Joba that was drunk and whose video went viral.
“Investigation and disciplinary actions have commenced.
“The Commissioner of Police, Olawale Olokode, is using this medium to state that the stringent disciplinary action he would face will serve as a deterrent to other officers of his likes.
“The command under his watch will not tolerate or condone any act that is capable of tarnishing the image of the Force, or unbecoming of a police officer.”
