Make Calls At Filling Stations, Go To Jail - Nigerian Police | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


The police have said that making phone calls at filling stations is a criminal offence which could land the offender in jail.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, stated that an offender could be prosecuted and jailed for attempted arson.

He noted that police officers have the authority to arrest anyone found making phone calls or smoking at filling stations.

He described the filling station as a public facility where motorists cannot act as they like on account of the inflammable products like petrol and other petroleum products being dispensed there.

Moshood, therefore, cautioned the public against violating the safety rules forbidding smoking and phone calls at filling stations.

He said, “Making phone calls or smoking at filling stations is a criminal offence and the police, of course, could arrest anyone violating the safety rules put in place to safeguard life and property at the filling stations.” YOU MIGHT ENJOY READING

  1. This is a distraction from the APC Federal Government. Please sort out the fuel queues before arresting people with your insufficiently staffed and incompetent police men. Thank you. Illiterate telling me that a cell phone can cause fire. Tufiakwa
