‘What To Do When Police Officers At Checkpoints Request For Phones’

Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP, Bassey Ewah, has asked Nigerians not to give their phones to policemen who stop them at checkpoints without a warrant.

The deputy commissioner made this known while speaking on Wednesday, Nov. 10, during a question and answer session at the just concluded program organized by the Police Community Relation Committee.

According to the DCP, a warrant is needed before any officer can check the phones of Nigerians.

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 your phone. Please take note.”
