WHEN CAN POLICE SEARCH A HOUSE WITHOUT A WARRANT.

Ordinarily, police and every other security agency cannot search a house/property without a search warrant(written authority) issued by a court.
One of the situations, where a security officer can search any property/place without a search warrant is where a criminal suspect sought to be arrested is inside such house/property or is believed to be inside such house. In such situation, the person in charge of such house must give free access and all needed support to the security agency to search the property for the suspect.

My authorities are sections 12(1), 494 and 495 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 and other similar laws across States in Nigeria.

WHAT MALE POLICE OFFICERS MUST DO BEFORE ENTERING A WOMAN’S HOUSE.

Where a suspect sought to be arrested by a male police officer runs into a property occupied be a woman and such woman ordinarily does not appear in public by reason of custom or religion, the police Officer cannot just enter the said property without doing the following things;

1. The Police Officer must inform the woman to withdraw so that she will not be seen, if she pleases.

2. Police Officer must give the woman enough time and opportunity to withdraw and then enter the property.
