A policewoman has gone viral after she missed the lyrics of the National Anthem while reciting it at the Conference and Retreat for Senior Police Officers in Imo State.
During the event, which was aired live on Monday, the policewoman stood on the stage to render the National Anthem before the acting Inspector-General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State.
But while reciting, she sang the wrong lyrics, and this led to knocks from netizens.
See some of the reactions below.

@timotiro wrote: “As funny as this is, it’s also sad because it shows how unpatriotic most of us are. We are working for survival and not patriotism. This is another example of just how our institutions have failed us. Even our senators can’t recite the 1st, let alone 2nd, stanza of our national anthem.”
