No More Checking Of Nigerians’ Phones – IG Of Police by ijustdey: 5:38pm On Oct 14
Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered police officers to stop checking citizens’ phones.

For years, operatives had insisted on searching phones of Nigerians youths at checkpoints or any location.

During such encounters at roadblocks or patrols, policemen, in most cases, forcefully snatch phones belonging to innocent citizens.

They search through e-mails, text messages, as well as chats on WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The victim is then “billed” an amount to secure the release of the gadget. Any claim of right or refusal to pay could lead to severe beating, seizure of the phone – or both.

A number of Nigerians have also complained of how police teams forced them to log into their bank accounts to view the balance.

But Adamu, at a press briefing on Wednesday, announced that such an era is gone.

“The issue of any Police unit going to look into people’s phones, which is supposed to be their private property, or looking at the type of vehicle they‘re using, or profiling them to see whether they‘re yahoo boys or not. That era is gone. It is not acceptable”, the IGP said.

There is nothing wrong in searching someone's phone if an officer has suspicions.

I really want to appreciate whosoever initiate this protest. You would agree with me that this is the beginning of good governance. Yes, revolt and protest against bad governance is the beginning of good governance. Political power belongs to the electorates and not the candidates, I don't know why it took us so long to realize this. If the northerners should protest against insecurities for a week, I can assure that within 2-3 months, Boko Haram/insurgency will end in the north.
More protest against bad governance, more progress of the country

I listened to Tunde Ednut's little interview with Omoyele Sowere and Sowore mentioned something that shook me. He said the reason for revolution that took place in France, 1798, was as simple as the increase in the price of bread. This got me thinking.
Initially, I felt Nigerians just wanted to endsars simply because they didn't like being harassed on road and couldn't see the bigger picture that the government was the one behind the unhygienic situation of affairs in Nigeria, that they were channeling their anger wrongly.

After listening to Sowore who said the French Revolution went from 'increase price of bread' to 'we want the heads of our misleaders', I was convinced that this endsars protest could lead to something even greater. I was expecting to hear more of #presidentstepdown by now but we shall see.
