Digital Identification: Police Set To Launch E-Warrant I.D Cards

The Nigeria Police Force has announced that it is set to digitalise the identification means of its operatives, using electronic warrant Cards.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, on Wednesday.

In the statement, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, disclosed that the e-Warrant Card would provide seamless identification of officers, nationwide, as well as help in identifying criminals impersonating police officers.

The IGP said the system was launched to ensure standardization and upgrade of the Force identification system.

The statement reads in part: “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,” He wrote.
