Policewoman Fauzziyah Isiak was absent from work without permission for 53 days – Police

Fauzziyah Isiak aka Fauzziyah the Honey Seller

Lagos State Police Command has given more insight into the case involving the detained policewoman Fauzziyah Isiak, noting that she absconded from work without permission.

Presumably tweeting from detention, Isiak said in the early hours of Thursday that she was detained from Wednesday after being called in for an interview.

The policewoman further said she submitted her resignation last year on several occasions to the Nigeria Police Force but it has remained unapproved since then.

Although the Command’s spokesman Benjamin Hundeyin had earlier revealed that Isiak was detained for absconding from duty, he added via Twitter that she 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.”
