The spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, has said that a police officer, Fauzziyah Isiak, was detained because she absconded from duty.
Recall that on Thursday morning, Isiak took to her Twitter account saying that she was detained for resigning from the Force.
According to her, she tendered her resignation letter in 2022 on several occasions but it remained unapproved since then.
Reacting to this, Hundeyin, said that Isiak was detained because she absconded from duty for over a month without permission or leave which was against the discipline.
He also added that she misrepresented facts in her tweets that after one submits a letter of resignation from the force, it has to be processed before one can get a discharge certificate.
He wrote, “Till you get the discharge certificate, you remain a serving member of the Force, bound by all extant rules and regulation of service #PoliceNG, absence from duty for twenty-one days without leave or permission automatically results in your being declared a deserter. Every serving member knows this.
“Corporal Fauzziyah Isiak, who serves in the office of the Imam of the Command, without leave, permission or discharge from service, absconded from duty for over a month, in flagrant disregard for the conditions of service she willingly signed to.
“For this offence against discipline, she was detained yesterday for the commencement of her orderly room trial today.
“Secondly, she has maliciously brought the name of the Force into disrepute by distorting misrepresenting facts – a discreditable conduct that amounts to another disciplinary offence.
