Ordinarily, the primary function of Nigeria Police Force is to serve the community, protect the innocent and ensure that there is liberty, justice and equality for all. Regrettably, these functions have become counterproductive since the emergence of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

It is still a puzzle how SARS became a nightmare to innocent Nigerians they were supposed to be protecting. As a matter of fact, if you live in states like Lagos, Delta, Edo and Portharcourt you will understand what I am saying.

Once you are riding a good car, wearing a nice wristwatch and using an iPhone, you are automatically labelled a Fraudster(Yahoo boy). It is actually disheartening how these officers of the law robbed innocent people of their hard earned money with accusations of money laundering.

Every freelancer, mini importer, bitcoin trader and other internet hustlers are constantly harassed and robbed for being successful. The most annoying aspect of SARS operation is the fact that they believe everybody doing online business is a fraudster.



There are several Nigerians who work for remote companies overseas. In other words, they work from their home while their employers are overseas. Nigerians are real-time hustlers and they are always the best in any freelancing platform you visit.

Does it mean that there are no police in the US, China and the UK where we have most of the top tech billionaires around the world? If police disturbed these tech billionaires during their early days of hustling, they would have been no Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Larry Page, Jack Ma, Jeff Bezos etc.

The best thing that has ever happened to Nigerian youths in this administration especially the internet entrepreneurs is “The Overhauling of SARS”. The acting President has done well.

Without much ado, lets quickly take a look of the impact the overhauling of SARS will have on Nigeria Digital Economy.

How Overhauling of SARS Will Benefit Nigerians

Despite what some people are saying about the decision to overhaul SARs, it will still benefit Nigerians in many ways. Some of these benefits are;

#1. Employment

One of the ways Overhauling of SARS will benefit Nigerians is that it will create more employment opportunities. Ordinarily, there are several Nigerians out there that are doing legit hustling online. But most times, they are disturbed by SARS and some of them even lost interest in the whole internet thing.

However, with the recent order to overhaul the police outfit, Nigerians that have lost interest in freelancing and other internet hustlings will definitely rekindle their hustling spirit. This means that they will be employed once again.

#2. More Business Opportunities

Mini importers can now do their importation and delivery without stress or challenge. They will make more profit without incurring unnecessary cost trying to pay SARS officials.

#3. Free Movement

This is the aspect that makes sense the most. You can now freely cruise your car around the city without being embarrassed by SARs.

#4. Absence of Fear

Guys will no longer be scared of going outside their houses. As a matter of fact, you can now move freely without your phones without anybody trying to open it and search what is inside.

#5. Fashion

Yeah, the fashion lovers will also benefit from this overhauling. You can now dress the way you like decently without you being harassed by the so-called SARS officials.

No sir. The presence or absence of SARS will in no way create any employment opportunity.

Not true again.

Poorly written article..

Hope u have seen the viral chat between a Nigerian and 2line app admin?

The app admin accused Nigerians of fraud. The nigerian was asking the app admin when they will make their app available to Nigerians..

The app admin made it clear that there is no plan to add Nigeria now or in the future.. The nigerian asked why, the admin said because most of us in this country are fraudulent online..


As legit hustler, how u dey see am? We pass through a lot to access certain sites or work for certain companies.. I am a top rated seller in upwork with over 10 pages amazing reviews.. However, most clients just run from me when they hear that I'm a nigerian..

When are we going to protest about our fraudulent activities too?

Or when are we going to stop celebrating politicians who have made it possible for most nigerian youths to go into online fraud?
