The police public relations officer, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has responded to the incident of a father exposing his 4-year-old daughter to indecent exposure, stating that the father will not face prosecution but instead will receive counseling on the implications of his actions.

According to him in a post shared on his X platform stating that “This is an act of indecency and exposing the young child to moral dangers. The PPRO of Edo command will take it up and counsel the parents rather than prosecute them.

“Many of us don’t know the implications of what we do. We will educate them, and many alike. This kind of thing will expose the girl to the rots in our system and moral dangers. Not in all cases we prosecute, there is a room for ADR and CSR in our duties, and we shall be adopting such.”

The decision not to prosecute the parents has sparked mixed reactions on social media, with some commending the police for their approach and others calling for stricter action to be taken against the parents.

@Sleek_Killa: “That was swift, thank you. All the NPF needs is the support of the Nigerian people and enough funding from the government and Nigeria will be a better place. The NPF needs to also earn our trust, ergo the NPF must continue to expose and deal with their rogue officers.”

@simisolaTomor: “In a working country, he’s lost the child forever to the government. So egbon @Princemoye1 do something sir”

@MikaelCBernard: “Counsel the parents? Your job is not to offer counseling, you’re not a psychologist. Do your damn job and leave counseling to those who are trained in it. If this was someone dragging you, you’d have turned to James Bond.”

However the Edo State Police Command has arrested the father of a 4-year-old girl who was featured in a viral video used for adult content.

This was confirmed in a statement signed by Chidi Nwabuzor, the Edo State Police Command Public Relations Officer, on Sunday.

According to the statement , the father was arrested within 12 hours of the incident being reported. The Commissioner of Police, CP Funsho Adegboye, has appealed for calm and assured the public that justice will be served.

Subsequently, the Nigeria police has release a press release issued and signed by ASP Olumuyiwa Adejobi. In a press release, the Nigeria police force condemned child exploitation and advocated for child safety measures. “The Force expresses profound shock and grave concern over the apparent exploitation of this vulnerable child and unequivocally condemns such actions in the strongest terms possible,” the release stated.

The police have also emphasized the importance of implementing support systems for parents and guardians to protect the safety and well-being of their children. “It is crucial for caregivers to also prioritize the security of minors and seek assistance or guidance when required,” the release added.

The incident has also raised concerns about child abuse and exploitation in Nigeria, with many calling for greater awareness and action to be taken to protect children from such incidents.
