We’ll Sanction Orderlies Found Carrying Handbag, Umbrella For Govt Officials- Police

Osun State Police Command on Monday threatened to sanction any of its officers attached to public officeholders caught carrying out domestic duties for their principals.

The Command spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola, who disclosed this in a statement released in Osogbo, stated that whosoever found with the act would be punished accordingly, adding that the era of police orderlies carrying handbags, umbrellas and opening of gates, amongst other menial duties for their principals had gone.

The statement reads: “The command is miffed with consternation the way and manner government officials and personalities use police orderlies attached to them for domestic duties, such as carrying handbags, umbrellas and opening of gates, amongst other menial duties.”
“The command, therefore, warns police officers attached to these officials to stop carrying out or serving purposes other than protecting their principals from security threats. ” 

“Such behaviour is highly unethical, unprofessional and would attract appropriate sanctions against erring police personnel.”

“Government officials are therefore enjoined to employ the services of domestic staff and personal assistants to carry out such services”

“Police officers attached to government officials are to protect their lives and property and not to serve as their domestic workers,” she added.
