“Don’t Give Your Phones To Police Officers At Checkpoints To Search” – Police Commissioner Warns Nigerians


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
