Report any Police man who forcefully collects your phone – NPF


The Nigerian Police Force, NPF has said it is unlawful for Police officers to forcefully collect the mobile devices of individuals and advised Nigerians to report any policeman who forcefully collects or searches their phones.

This was made known yesterday by the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi via a post on his X page.

He wrote, “Report any policeman who forcefully collects and searches your phones or electronic equipment. It’s not proper, not professional.

“They can only scrutinise your phone when such is subject to an investigation and already marked exhibit, and such is not done on the road.

“So, any policeman who searches the phone on the road is deviant and violates the order of the IGP and negates our SOP. He should be sanctioned.”
