Nigerian Police as well as any other authority that arrests any person in Nigeria, has the responsibility of contacting and notifying the family of such arrested person, at no cost to the arrested person. It may be next of kin or relative of the arrested person and neither them nor the arrested person should be charged for any expenses (calls, text or transportation fare) spent in contacting them. Nigerian Police and every other government agency do have budgets and their staff are paid salary, so you don’t need to pay them or even give them gift. It is their job!
My authority is sections 6 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015.
