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.
“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.”
