The Nigeria Police Force has affirmed that citizens have the right to record videos of police officers while they are on duty.

The Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated this in response to an X user, #Boy_Cyril, who reported being extorted by police officers for recording them during a stop-and-search operation.

#Boy_Cyril wrote, “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.”

Addressing the issue, Adejobi stressed that filming or photographing police officers in the line of duty is not an offence.
