Don’t give police officers your phone unless shown a search warrants – Deputy Commissioner of Police

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.”
