By Hannah Nathan, Warri

According to Lagos State Commissioner of Police Fayoade Adegoke, no officer is allowed to inspect a Nigerian person’s phone.

Adegoke clarified that if an officer had any suspicions, they would bring the person to the police station’s cyber unit.

During his visit to Melody FM, 107.7FM in Lagos, the CP made this statement.

“If you feel a policeman engaged in corruption or cheated you, kindly report the policeman to his DPO or Area Commander. But if you still feel cheated, please report to me directly. My phone number is open to all Lagosians.

“No police officer has the right to beat citizens. The people are the government’s employers; your taxes support us. Thus, we have to treat you with the appropriate decency.

“Also, no policeman has the right to search your phone. If a policeman suspects anything on your phone, he will take you to the station. We have a cyber department that is responsible for all that,” he added.
