Delete bank alerts from phones, police warn Nigerians

by OkeomaNews

Nigeria Police force has advised Nigerians to be careful as they go about in the face of rising insecurity in the country.

Giving security tips, the force advised Nigerians to desist from keeping bank alerts in their phone.

The security agents also urged citizens to always move about with their means of identification.

Urging them to dress responsibly and always move in company, the force urged car owners not to look away while their vehicles are being searched.

The force also urged drivers to search their vehicles after giving lift to a stranger.

The tip reads “For your own good, whenever law enforcement agents ( whether in uniform or not) stop a vehicle you boarded, stay calm, avoid hissing and grumbling. Whether you are a man or a woman,

respect them.

“Please take the receipts of your electronic equipment, laptop or other bulk gadgets (original or photocopy), anywhere you go if you must carry them. 

“If you don’t have means of identification from your school or workplace, get at least a national ID card or driver’s licence. It is crucial.

“Delete all your bank alerts, and transfer sensitive information into a flash drive or memory card.  Keep your financial transactions away from your phone. 

“Carrying  more than Ten ATM card may bring serious problem for you in our present-day Nigeria : be warned !!!

“If you must move at night no matter how close to your house, take your ID card and let someone go with you.

“Dress responsibly – it will save you. Looking rugged and wild may earn you serious trouble. 

“If you are given a vehicle to go for an errand, make sure all documents are complete and up- to- date. Also, your driver’s licence must be compliant before you hit the road.

“When your car is being searched, don’t just look away in anger ; they are doing their job. Just

pay close attention to what’s going on, to avoid “had I known”.

“If you are not sure of what someone is carrying in a bag, pack, or sack, please ask politely before accepting to give the person a ride. You may be arrested for what you know nothing about.

“After any stranger you decide to give a help comes down, move forward a little, park and  search your vehicle very well before you continue so as to avoid harbouring any incriminating objects left behind.”
