They belong to the celestial, they are angels living on earth and they are not shy to show it. But there is one problem, they also belong to the Nigeria Police Force.
Obaze Blessing and Obaze Emmanuella Uju, probably chose the wrong profession. As beautiful queens, they could make a comfortable living as models, business women or just being what they are: beauty queens.
But they chose the Nigeria Police, an organization known for its rigid rules, mandated upon its officers and men.
The police also had rules guiding conduct of its officers on social media. And with the fame and gain of social media platforms today, very few could resist the allure of TikTok, the vawulence on Twitter, the philosophy of Facebook and the vainglory of Instagram.
Blessing and Uju could not resist, so they removed the exalted police uniforms and dorn a more seductive and sensual bikinis, revealing all their bodily perfections, in all it’s glory.
And fame came to them. Thousands of comments and likes. Men adored them and spoke of how glorious they look. Women, some spiked by jealousy thumbed their noses at them while others accepted their fate as being forever inferior to them in beauty.
But the gain of the fame did not come. Instead, the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi in a tweet ( same social media the two had made their fame) said they have been suspended, for violating social media rules of the police.
Adéjọbí said in a video that the two policewomen portrayed themselves “as undisciplined and unprofessional in the viral TikTok they released.”
“Above all, they portrayed themselves in the viral video and other videos as undisciplined and unprofessional in contravention of the police social media policy.’’
It is unclear what the final punishment would be. Demotion, redeployment or outright dismissal? Whatever it is, Blessing and Uju would never be the same again.
Would the cry, moan or regret? Not likely, after all everyone deserves a 15minutes of fame. And police officers are also human beings.
