DAILY LAW TIPS by Onyekachi Umah,Esq. (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.
