DCP Bassey Ewah, the Deputy Commissioner of police, has warned Nigerians should not in any circumstance give their phones to policemen at checkpoints without authorize warrant.
In a program organised by the Police Community Relation Committee on Wednesday in Lagos, the commissioner said that during investigation, police officers must present a warrant before asking a person for his phone.
He warned Nigerians not to give their phones to any officer who doesn’t show them a warrant.
“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.”, he said
