“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.

(Tip 140)
“Right Against Confiscation of Property In Nigeria.”

Every person in Nigeria has a fundamental human right to acquire a property in any part of Nigeria as well as a right not have its property confiscated or compulsorily acquired. No property can be confiscated for any reason whatsoever by any person, body, agency or government. Note that it is only a court of law that can order the forfeiture, confiscation or takeover of any person’s property.

My authorities are sections 43 and 44 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

(Tip 135)
“It is Illegal To Pay Police or Any Security Agency For Recovery Of Any Stolen Money or Items”.

It is the duty of Police and other security agencies to protect lives and property. They investigate crimes, recover stolen money and items for FREE because government pays them salaries and provides or should provide other needed supports.
Hence, no security agency is permitted to demand for any payment as success fee or mobilisation fee. They are not entitled to any percentage of recovered stolen property. All services rendered in police station are FREE including Bail and Recovery of stolen items. Report any police officer or security agent that demands money to do its work or for doing its work. Stop corruption!

My authority; Police Act.

(Tip 133)
“Houses, Emails, Phones, Computers, Bank Accounts and Other Personal Items Cannot Be Merely Searched and Seized By Nigerian Police”.

In Nigeria, there is “Right to Private and Family Life” as a fundamental human right of all persons in Nigeria(including literates and illiterates, Young and Old, Students and Workers, Nigerians and Foreigners).
Hence, Police, SARS and other security agencies and their agents CANNOT break into and search your house or search through your phones, laptops, emails or bank accounts. Before any of the above activities can be done, the security agency must first obtain and show to you an order of court authorising such activities. Unprofessional policing is a crime.

My authority: section 37 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.

(Tip 124)
“It Is Not a Crime to Be a Debtor In Nigeria”.

Being a debtor is not a Crime in Nigeria and Debt is not an offence in any part of Nigeria. Even failure to pay debt after such was demanded is also not an offence so far as there is no intention to defraud or commit an offence. No security agency including Nigeria Police, EFCC, State Security Services, Nigeria Army and vigilante groups has right to intervene, arrest, harass or detain a debtor or order repayment of debt. You recover debt by engaging a lawyer.

My authority: Section 2 of Criminal Code Act and section 4 of Penal Code Act.

“Right of Nigeria Police Force to Demand For Driver’s License and Other Vehicle Documents”.

Often drivers argue that police officers are for crimes and cannot do the work of members of Federal Road Safety Commission. Please note that Nigerian police is established to protect live and property as well as maintain law and order. Hence, Nigerian police has general powers to do all that any security organisation or agency is specifically authorised to do, including military duties within and outside Nigeria.
