HATFIELD, United Kingdom (VOICE OF NAIJA) –Nigerian actress and singer, Mercy Isoyip, aka Descushiel, has tendered a public apology to both Nigerians and the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) for inaccurately reciting the national anthem during the Conference for Senior Police Officers in Imo State.
Descushiel, who garbed a police uniform during the event, gained widespread attention on Monday for faltering while reciting the national anthem.
A video of her rendition had Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo state, and other guests in the hall looking on in bewilderment.

Nevertheless, in a video posted on her Instagram account on Tuesday, Descushiel expressed regret for her errors, stating, “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.”
