‘LAWYERS MUST USE PHONES IN POLICE STATIONS,’ SAYS GADZAMA
LAWYERS SHOULD BE ALLOWED ENTRY TO POLICE FORMATIONS WITH THEIR MOBILE PHONES – JOE-KYARI GADZAMA, SAN
On Thursday, June 16, 2022, Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama, SAN who is the incumbent Chairman of NBA-Security Agency Relations Committee (NBA-SARC) and the Pioneer Chairman of NBA-Section on Public Interest & Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL), penned down an appeal to the inspector General of Police requesting that lawyers should be allowed entry with their mobile phones to all police formations across the country.
It is common knowledge that we now live in a digital world and accordingly, lawyers require their mobile phones to perform their daily business activities. The trend of dropping off phones by lawyers at collection points established by the police force and other security agencies renders a lawyer almost ineffective as they are not able to deliver and communicate with their clients during the period of time spent at the police formations or security agencies.
While acknowledging the mutual relationship between the Nigerian Police Force and the Nigerian Bar Association as champions in the fight against corruption and injustice in the country, the Learned Silk in his letter solemnly requested for the urgent intervention by issuing a written notice from the office of the Inspector General of Police for compliance on this matter as it will aid in adding positive value to the daily work activities of lawyers.
