She had claimed that she tendered her resignation letter since last because she lost passion for the job, but is yet to get approval.

Reacting, Hundeyin wrote on Twitter;


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.

“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. Nevertheless, she would have an opportunity to explain herself at the trial, after which a decision will be made.”
