Nigeria Police Demote Officer for ‘praising’ cult group in Tik-Tok video


The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has demoted an officer spotted flaunting his rifle in a dance video.

On May 7, a corporal was seen in a viral Tik-Tok video dancing, singing, and brandishing his service rifle.

The officer, who was later identified as Isaac Mathew, is attached to Ebonyi state police command.

In a statement addressing the development, the NPF said Mathew has been demoted from corporal to constable.
