The Nigerian police force has issued a stern warning to Nigerian pranksters and comic actors on the rate of endangered pranking they portray to civilians.
On Thursday, The Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi issued that the Police will not be blamed nor judged if a prankster is shot down for handling either a real gun or a fake one.
This is to prevent the rate at which most Nigerian content creators deploy anxiety on civilians as they have developed a reputation for pranking civilians with either real guns or fake ones.
He also added that this will definitely assist in simplifying duties for the officers of the law to identify the real criminals among civilians.
CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said:
“This is getting out of hand and we need to talk to ourselves on this pranks (sic). Most of you that do pranks must be very careful. Moderate what you do.”
“There are things you do that will constitute offence and you will not be able to hold it because the law is not respecter of anybody. The law will not pity you. The law will not consider you for anything.”
“Whatever it is, so far you are old enough to have criminal responsibility, you are going to face the music. You are to face the wrath of the law.”
“So, beware the way you do pranks but not the way the thing is going now. No regulation, no decorum. You do it at will, the way you want, and it is creating more problem to us than what you think you are deriving from it.”
“On majorly, some of you that go to the extent of carrying guns, either dummy, real or fake guns or whatever you call it, it is dangerous. You are exposing your lives to dangers. If I’m a policeman in the street and I see you with a gun, I wouldn’t know it is a prank, I can even fire at any time.”
“You won’t go on blaming our men on operations that they have gunned down an innocent person. At that time, are you actually an innocent person or you are to be treated as an armed robber or criminal who is fully armed. Regulate this and if you cannot regulate it, stop doing pranks.”
