The Nigeria Police Force on Monday, reiterated its ban on the use of Point-of-Sale (PoS) machines and other mobile money transaction devices within police stations across the country.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Monday.

Adejobi explained it is due to alleged “illegal and illicit transactions through ‘point-of-sale’ (POS) machine operators and connivance with certain police operatives.”

Adejobi said it had come to the attention of the police that some commands and formations of the NPF continued to flout the regulation, and that the ban was aimed at preserving the security and integrity of police operations.

The FPRO noted that the use of payment devices within the police premises posed risks, including the compromise of sensitive information and facilitation of illicit activities.

The statement read, “The Nigeria Police Force, following public outcry on alleged illegal and illicit transactions through point-of-sale (POS) machine operators and connivance with certain police operatives, hereby reiterates the ban on the utilisation of POS machines and other electronic mobile money transaction devices within police stations and other police facilities nationwide.

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