2023: Police slam female officer for carrying Atiku’s wife handbag

The Nigeria Police has slammed a yet-to-be-identified policewoman, for carrying the handbag of Titi, the wife of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku’s wife, on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, unveiled a women-focused initiative in Abuja and her husband shared photos from the event, which showed her orderly standing with a handbag behind her.

Social media has been agog ever since the photos were shared with many agitated over what they term a disrespect to the Nigeria Police.

Reacting to the photos, the force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi via his Twitter account faulted the action of the orderly, adding that she will be fished out for the right sanctions to be meted out.

Adejobi described as “bad” for an orderly to carry the bag of their principal, saying such action makes them incapacitated to perform their police duties.

He added that such action will not be allowed to continue in the system as much as the police are intentional about reforming its system.

He wrote,“This is not acceptable. We have commenced necessary action on this. We will fish her out and get across to the principal.” Adejobi said in a series of tweets.

“To us in the police, it’s an absurdity and should not be allowed to continue.

“To you, it might not be serious but to us, it’s serious for many reasons some of which are known to you as well. We don’t need any sentiment if at all we are serious about reform.

“My brother, this is bad for an orderly to carry bag for her madam, more so that the madam is not a service(sic) police officer. How does she defend her if there is any attack on her?”

This development is coming barely a month after Zainab Duke-Abiola, one of the widows of late MKO Abiola was remanded at the Suleja Correctional Centre for allegedly assaulting a female police orderly attached to her, Teju Moses.

Zainab who is also a lawyer and a human right activist allegedly ordered her housemaid, Rebecca Enechido, to beat the police officer attached to her for refusing to do some domestic chores she assigned to her.

In a video clip that went viral, the officer was seen in uniform bleeding, seated on the floor, and asking to be taken to the hospital for medical attention.

The police later arraigned Duke-Abiola and her domestic worker, Rebecca Enechido, before a Magistrate’s Court sitting in Wuse District, Abuja.
