DAILY LAW TIPS by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.(Tip 255)
“IS AN ARRESTED PERSON ENTITLED TO LIST OF ALL PROPERTY TAKEN FROM HIM”
Gone are the days property of an arrested person are stolen or lost by an arresting officer. It is the duty of an arresting police officer to record details and inventory of all items and property recovered from an arrested person. Such must be signed by both the police officer and arrested person. Then, the arrested person and his lawyer as well as any other person the arrested person may authorise are entitled to copies of the inventory.
My authorities are sections 10(1), (2), (3) and 494 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015 and other similar laws across States in Nigeria.
