The Nigerian police has educated and enlightened the public on what is obtainable when they are approached by a police officer for search.
A message written on their Twitter handle in their AskThePolice series states that any officer that wants to search a citizen’s house or car must first submit himself to be searched.
According to them, this is the procedure and a citizen must ask politely.
If an officer wants to search you in your house/ car, he must first surrender himself for searching. This is the procedure. Ask politely. #AskThePolice
