The Nigerian police force has reiterated that its officers do not have the authority to indiscriminately search people’s phone while they are on the road.Police issue warning to personnel to stop checking people’s phone

The notice was once again issued by CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, on Tuesday during a program that Hitvibz monitored.

CSP Adejobi speaking further about the ill practice that Nigerians have long accused police officers of engaging in, said;

Stop checking phones on the road. You can’t check somebody’s phone. It is his personal property. You cannot do it.”

The Force PRO was talking on a variety of topics, including police operations and recent disciplinary measures against some officers for abusing citizens of Nigeria.

When asked if the police were taking action to stop other officers from violating citizens’ rights, he said that attempts were being made while reiterating the fact that deviants exist in every community and society.

In the Police, we have those who are deviants. There is no policeman who doesn’t know that you must not dress improperly, you must not smoke while on duty, you must not slap the Nigerian, you must not use cutlass to flog. There is no Nigerian police personnel who will tell me today that they are not aware because, in the training school, it’s part of our manual; they must have taught you all these things.” – he said.

According to the police spokesman, the Force will keep taking the required disciplinary measures against disobedient officers.

So, if a policeman has done something wrong, every offence — disciplinary offence or criminal offence — has its punishment. If it is reduction in rank, we give it to you; if it is dismissal, we give to you; if it is severe reprimand, we give to you. But it is clear, how can a policeman stand on the road and be collecting money? It is not a disciplinary offence, it is a criminal offence. Corruption is a criminal offence. If you flog somebody, you assault somebody, it is a criminal offence,” CSP Adejobi noted.
