Vandefan Tersugh: It Raises Suspicion For A 20 - 30 Year-Old To Have N7m Car by ijustdey: 4:01pm On Oct 12
Vandefan Tersugh, a former commander of the dissolved special anti-robbery squad (SARS), says it is suspicious for Nigerian youth to have a car worth N7 million.

Tersugh, who is a retired chief superintendent of police, said this during an African Independent Television (AIT) programme on Monday.

He said police officers, including former operatives of SARS cannot detect crime by “mere seeing you” on the road but they have to interrogate such persons to find out the source of their income.

He was speaking in the light of the recent nationwide protests against the anti-robbery squad accused of excessive use of force, arbitrary arrests and, in some cases, extrajudicial killings.

Many Nigerians have accused SARS operatives of undue profiling and stereotyping leading to alleged harassment and extortion of young people.

When he featured on the programme monitored by TheCable, Tersugh said while working as a police officer, he would suspect a Nigerian aged between 20 and 30 who was driving an expensive car and would have to enquire about such a person’s background.

“The mandate of the policeman is to detect crime and you can detect crime also through most of these technologies coming on board,” he said.

“We were not trained during our manuals to talk about cybersecurity and cybercrime, but today cybercrime has become something very endemic in our society. And this can be done by asking questions and examining some of these things physically.”

Arguing that police officers do not need a search warrant in such occasions, he said the manner the person replies the security operatives will determine their next line of action.

“If I stop you on the road and I want to have a look at your phone, I want to see your Facebook, I don’t think I have committed any crime because I am only asking you a simple question,” he said.

“It is your answer that will lead me to go beyond where I have started. I can’t detect crime by mere seeing you but by asking you questions. I have seen you with a car, and now I have assessed your age, and I know in Nigeria how difficult it is for someone who is 20, 30 to start having a car worth N7 million.


“I cannot, as a policeman, see you there and assume something is not wrong with the way you are with the car, except I am able to ask you a question and I know your background, your family background, where you are working and where you got money to buy this car.”

And it doesn't raise suspicion for the Armed robbers to waste young people's life to rob them of the said #7m.

These are indeed the old people my mama and my village people use to warn me about.


However, he is right about young folks whose stock in trade is stealing, scamming, and defrauding hard-working individuals to live ostentatiously.

The appropriate arm of the law enforcement should be handling that with the courts though.

You stop me and you want to see my phone and Facebook?
Are you normal?
In fact that retired idiot is mad!

What is the work of EFCC?

What is the work of the Banks and the CBN in monitoring cash inflows and dealing with such suspicions from their regulatory point of view?

Imagine explaining to a roadside police officer that you are a freelancer who works remotely...

With their fish brain... Bam! You are yahoo yahoo.

Dumb and criminal illiterate.
In as much as I am totally against Yahoo boys, it is not SARS' job to harass random people and go through their phone and social media accounts.
You need warrant to check someone's phone.

It would have been better if these criminals only search phones but their main aim is to
rob their victims under the threat of gun.
Merely having 3 different banking apps may lead to threats and extortion.

If they check this man's account, they would likely find millions in proceed of crimes
and bribes from the so-called criminals he is supposedly fighting.

Today Frank Mba will come and tell you that the police has no right to search your phone.

Then tomorrow Ex-SARS oga will say when you start behaving somehow they have the right to search your phone. Believe the Disbanding of SARS at your own perile #AudioDisband

I know of young people cashing out on a legitimate basis and living good.
If not for poverty capital of the world, how much is 7m in dollars?

But you won't interrogate a poor old man sleeping under the bridge to know his source of wretchedness or poverty as well

That someone drives a car automatically means it belongs to him or her?

Does that mean a young executive can't be given an official car?

What about organisations that give staff access to car loans?

Una don talk truth, but however does this warrant the lives that are cut shut at will or the extortion that takes place?

If you so eager to about the endemic cyber crime why not advocate more from EFCC

To what end does your illegal oversight help exactly

Why can't sars also question the endemic poverty and joblessness within an average Nigeria youth.

Because such poverty/jobless state is as same danger as cybercrime

first of all it is very illegally and unethical to check someone's phone because you suspect he might be a Thief or Yahoo boy, it is against the human right of that person. there are other ways you can investigate someone. the police and our banks should be working hand in hand so if there's any significant increase of money in someone's bank account the bank can alert the police, who in turn will call you in for questioning and if your answer is not satisfactory enough they can get a search warrant from a judge with good reasons then they can search your phone and house simple. they can do this without violating any bodies right.

What's wrong is that you want to use analog techniques to detect digital crime. It's a no-no sir. Plus times have changed and Nigerian Police is not supposed to be an extension of Hisbah Jihaddists whipping perceived errants in line by all means necessary, especially the crudest means.
The police must grow with time and learn to outwit criminals in more civil ways rather than focusing on brute force and power of the gun.

Even if Yahoo Boys steal money from the internet, is the internet Nigeria's jurisdiction for policing?

Why not focus on crimes committed on Nigeria's physical location and leave the cyber police to monitor the internet and track offenders instead of arresting boys who drive 7m cars.

It does not still occur to these illiterates that even if its laughter that is your talent on youtube, and you have a million views that google pays millions.

I knew that promoting illiterates into office is Nigeria's nemesis. Fuckers do not know there is more money online than crude oil can provide.

Bastards.

Everyone using laptop must be a criminal in the mind of illiterates.

The only issue I have with this man is that, despite being retired, he still never get sense. Maybe SARS should Kuku clear off his offsprings from the surface of the earth to avoid breeding foolish beings like himself, since they now work on suspicion and ultra vires oversight just to extort, maim and kill.

Useless set of Nigerian police! But these stupid cops usually have houses in Lekki and all the highbrow areas in Nigeria.

The police acts like god and lord overall. Forgetting that they are human. The indulge in indecent acts- Drugs, crimes, prostitution etc. Has anyone ever been to Phase 1 gate, the stupidd set of people always harass ladies and sleep with them at will and arrest them. What kind of animals do we have in the police?
