The Nigeria Police Force has said that Nigerians are free to video and photograph its operatives on duty.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, made this known in a tweet on his X handle.

The tweet, on Thursday, followed an inquiry by an X user: @Boy_Cyril, that he was fleeced of N10,000 by police operatives on stop and search for video recording them.


@Boy_Cyril tweeted: “Sir, is it a crime to video during stop and search because I had to pay N10,000 for those officers to give me back my phone after taking it forcefully from me just now.”

Adejobi, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, replied: “You can video or take pictures of policemen on duty.

“We have said it severally.

“There is nothing wrong with that.

“You can take up the case.

“Send an SMS to me or to our email box, you can as well talk to your PPRO.”
