Lagos State Police Command has explained why it detained a policewoman, Fauzziyah Isiak over purported attempt to resign her appointment.

It would be recalled that, Isiak via her official Twitter account early Thursday maintained that she was placed in detention from Wednesday after she was in invited for an interview.

The operative thereby noted that all efforts made to resign her appointment are being frustrated, stressing that the Nigerian Police Force failed to approve series of resignation letter submitted her resignation last year.

Earlier, the Command’s image maker, Benjamin Hundeyin had however stated that Isiak was detained over absence from duty.

Speaking via Twitter, Benjamin further stressed that the female officer did not follow due process in resigning.

He said, “Last year, at the start of the honey season, she absconded from work without permission. When reached on phone to ascertain her whereabouts, she sent in her resignation – not tenable.

“Same thing this year. She sent in a resignation letter after first going AWOL. Due process must be followed.

“Her trial has commenced for absence from duty for fifty-three days and flouting of the NPF Social Media Policy.”

Reacting to the development, spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed that the female operative seeking to resign is not unaware of the procedures, describing her public outburst as being “funny and misleading”.

His tweet read, “Everyone knows the process. She is just being funny and misled, I guess. I am sure many have got the facts from the command.

“The process is clear. You write a resignation letter through your DPO, to Area Commander, follow the ladder up to the IGP, and response comes via the same route.”

The embattled officer who took to her Twitter noted that she has been serving in the Nigerian Police Force for about six years ago, adding that she deserved the fundamental right as Nigerian to bow out of the Force any time she wishes.
