Don’t give your phones to police officers at checkpoints to search – Police boss, DCP Bassey Ewah tells Nigerians

DCP Bassey Ewah, the Deputy Commissioner of Police has cautioned Nigerians against giving their telephones to cops who stop them at designated spots without a warrant.


He did this on Wednesday, November 10,  while answering questions during a programme organised by the Police Community Relation Committee in Lagos State.


According to Bassey Ewah, police officers carrying out an investigation would present a warrant before requesting a person’s cell phone.


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.”
