He said the warrant is needed before any officer can check the phones of Nigerians.

Speaking on Wednesday, Nov. 10, while answering questions during a program organized by the Police Community Relation Committee in Lagos State, Ewah said police officers carrying out an investigation would present a warrant before asking for a person’s phone.

He then encouraged Nigerians not to give their phones to any officer who doesn’t show them a warrant.

He said:-

“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 your phone. Please take note.”
