A police commander should not make a blanket statement such as this one,especially in a polity where officers are not properly trained and no machinery in place to protect consumers right!

Oga, learn from those who used phones had landed in trouble. Examples are not far from verification. Warnings are not for the deaf ears and to be fore warn is to be fore armed.

Very good warning. Needs to be given wider publicity. Poverty, greed, and covetousness have driven our people to buying London used phones the end of which might leave a bad taste.

So what kind of statement should a police commander be making? Are you aware many of the so-called London-used phones have issues just like Commander RRS rightly stated? People should beware not to fall victim for such terrible embarrassment when you innocently travel with phones

Yet they won’t stop importing those phones in Nigeria. Nigeria is dumping ground for all used items.. From bendown select(ok) to used phones to tokounbo cars and the list goes on and on. May God turn our situations around for good.
