This came after a video went viral online, which showed the moment a police officer confronted a civilian to surrender his phone for searching, man who refused to open his phone for the officer. The Nigerian man insisted that the Inspector General of Police has said that no officer has a right to search phones.
The officer must’ve felt slighted by the Nigerian who enforced his civil rights, maintained that Inspector General of Police has said that no officer has a right to search phones, and this led to an argument between the man and the police officer.
A Twitter user who shared the video wrote
