Chief of Civil-Military Affairs, Major-General, Usman Mohammed, has revealed why the use of phones when approaching a military checkpoint is wrong.
According to the general, this is wrong because it constitutes a security loophole.
He disclosed this on Channels Television. He said any person making a phone call could be communicating with criminals or may even use the device to set up some certain devices.
“It is a general convention; it is not peculiar to Nigeria, it is everywhere; people who have travelled abroad know that you don’t make phone calls when approaching a checkpoint.”
