The Nigeria Police has described the photograph, which showed a senior police officer in the act of fondling the breast of an unknown lady, as fake. It said the picture, which went viral on the Internet, was deliberately fabricated with the aid of Adobe Photoshop technology to mislead the public.
The alleged amorous scene, the police authorities claimed, did not take place and the officer had nothing to do with the woman in the above photo with him…
The police authority said they arrived at this conclusion after interrogating the officer. On the Facebook page of the police, the affected police officer was quoted as saying, “I don’t know this lady. I never took the picture with her.”
The police said it would not tolerate a display of affection for the opposite sex in full public glare, but insisted it has observed that this particular photo is not real, after all.
“An image showing one of our officers in a compromising position with a lady has gone viral. Please check the hands in the so-called picture that is in circulation and you will agree that they were photo-shopped.”
