This information was released in a statement on Wednesday that was signed by the force’s public relations officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi.
With the use of the Inspector-General of Police e-Warrant Card, it would be possible to identify police imposters and identify personnel with ease.
“The e-Warrant Card would provide seamless identification of officers all over the country as well as eliminate the possibility of criminal elements presenting fake identity cards at police stations personating themselves to be police officers.
“Upon its launch, it would engender a full digitalization of police identification nationwide and provide a valid basis for effecting arrests with warrants in line with extant laws, and many other benefits attached to the use of such e-warrant cards,” the statement read.
