Don’t Give Your Phones To Police Officers At Checkpoints To Search – Police Boss Cautions Nigerians

Don?t give your phones to police officers at checkpoints to search - Police boss cautions Nigerians

 

Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Bassey Ewah, has warned Nigerians against giving their phones to policemen who stop them at checkpoints without a warrant.

 

Speaking on Wednesday, Nov. 10, while answering questions during a programme organised by the Police Community Relation Committee in Lagos State, Ewah said police officers carrying out an investigation would present a warrant before asking for a person’s phone.

 

He then encouraged Nigerians not to give their phones to any officer who doesn’t show them a warrant.

 

He said: “I stand to be corrected; please do not give any policeman who stopped you on the checkpoint your phones; it’s not our schedule. If we are investigating you, we will present a warrant and then demand for your phone. Please take note.”
