Nigeria Police Ban Use Of POS, Others Within Police Stations


0

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has reiterated that the utilization of Point of Sale (POS) machines and other electronic mobile money transaction devices within police stations and other police facilities nationwide is prohibited.

The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made the assertion in a statement on Monday.

The reiteration became necessary following public outcry alleging illegal and illicit transactions through POS machine operators and connivance with certain police operatives.

Adejobi said that the ban is aimed at preserving the integrity and security of police operations, forestalling perceived corrupt practices, clearing the Commands/Formations of possible criminal intrusion under such guise, and maintaining discipline within the Force.

The statement warned that any violation of the ban would attract severe sanctions on the leadership of the affected Command/ Formation.

“The IGP notes that the use of electronic payment devices within police facilities poses significant risks, including the potential compromise of sensitive information, financial irregularities, and the facilitation of illicit activities, therefore, strict adherence to this directive is non-negotiable”, Adejobi stated.
