CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Nigeria Police Force’s acting Public Relations Officer, has reiterated that any police officer checking a person’s phone is wrong.
In response to a Twitter user’s question, Adejobi stated that a police officer should not search a person’s phone unless it is the subject of a criminal investigation.
A Twitter user had written;
”Sir what business does NPF have with checking people’s phones, going through WhatsApp conversations, and intruding on one’s privacy. This still happens on a daily basis and I hope you’re aware”
Responding, Adejobi wrote;
”It’s wrong, I have said this repeatedly. Except the phone is subject to a criminal investigation, and the phone has been marked exhibit, if not, no..very wrong”
