“It Is Illegal To Ban Movement of Any Person In Nigeria Without Court Order”.

Every person in Nigeria has a right to move around Nigeria and leave/exit Nigeria whenever. It is an inalienable fundamental human right of Nigerians and foreigners inside Nigeria. Such right can only be limited by an order of court. Hence no security agency or government organisation can violate, limit, vary or qualify such right, restrict or ban the movement of any person in or out of Nigeria.

My authority is section 41 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,1999.

DAILY LAW TIPS

“It Is The Duty Of Nigerian Police TO Contact The Family Of An Arrested Person”
 
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.
