The Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin has explained why a police officer, Fauzziyah Isiak was detained at the station.
Hundeyin said she was detained because she absconded from duty.
Fauzziyah Isiak on Thursday morning, took to her Twitter handle to disclose 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.
Part of her lengthy post reads, “I never saw this coming. I have never thought I’ll be put in detention without interrogation. All I did was try to resign. I have been trying to resign from the Police since last year but my letters were not approved.”
I never saw this coming. I have never thought I’ll be put in detention without interrogation. All I did was try to resign. I have been trying to resign from the Police since last year but my letters were not approved. My boss had called me to show up yesterday 24th of may to

In his reaction to the claim, 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.”
SETTING THE RECORDS STRAIGHT: It is one thing to turn in your resignation. It is another thing for the application to be processed, upon which you receive your discharge certificate. 1/7 https://t.co/tr9DtHdJDj
