Descushiel, the popular Nigerian actress and singer, Mercy Isoyip, issued an apology to the Nigerian people and the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) after reciting the national anthem incorrectly during the Conference for Senior Police Officers in Imo State.
Descushiel, who was dressed in a police uniform during the conference, went viral on Monday when she faltered on the lyrics of the national anthem during the event.
As a result, she faced criticism from some Nigerians on social media who mocked her, mistakenly presuming she was a policewoman due to her attire.
However, in a video posted on her Instagram account on Tuesday, Descushiel expressed remorse for her mistakes.
“I sincerely apologise for the error I made during the recital of the National Anthem, I know such errors are inexcusable,” Descushiel said.
“My good people of our country, please accept my apology, as well as my assurance that I will be more careful in the future to prevent such incidents from recurring.
“God bless the Nigeria Police Force. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
