The Federal Government has been asked to harness the tech skills of cyber crime offenders in Nigeria rather than throwing them behind bars.

The recommendation emanted from the 88th Edition of the Telecom Consumer Parliament hosted last week by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in Abuja.

The NCC consumer forum recommends that cyber crime offendeers should be placed in facilities where their tech skills can be harnessed for technology growth in Nigeria.

“It was also agreed that cyber crime offenders instead of just being jailed, should be put in facilities where their skills can be deployed for development of Technology as opposed to just being incarcerated”, according to the post-event recommendation released by the telecoms regulator, NCC.

Professor Umar Garba Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman, NCC, also told the event attendees that the telecoms regulatory agency will continue to collaborate with stakeholders to address cyber security issues in Nigeria.

According to Danbatta the NCC “would continue to ensure dialogue and active participation where we can harness additional ideas and implementation in order to protect ourselves.”

He reckons that telecoms stakeholders should “to go back to the drawing board in order to inspire confidence in consumers to patronize the communications services because If Nigerians do not subscribe to telecommunications services, the services will die and millions of Nigerians will lose their jobs, the revenue the telecom Industry generates to GDP will not be there and that is a recipe for disaster.”The NCC forum also resolved that service providers should have a unified database for SIM cards in collaboration with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to reduce the number of SIM card fraudsters.

Do This Simple Thing To Escape SARS

Reports of extortion, illegal detention and physical assault by men of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) are frighteningly common these days.Reports of extortion, illegal detention and physical assault by men of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) are frighteningly common these days.
After numerous reports of alleged assault, extortion and torture of Nigerians by SARS operatives, hashtag #EndSARS became the rallying cry the to mount a concerted opposition to the illegal activities of the police unit. It gained momentum before fizzling out when it seemed the SARS horror stories had reduced.
The hellish reports are back in full force. The profiling of young Nigerians as criminals with no hard evidence litter Instagram and Twitter timelines. #EndSARS is popping up on timelines again. Unfortunately, despite mounting claims both by foreign agencies and alleged victims, nothing seems to be done about SARS. Special Anti-Robbery Squad target mainly young Nigerians who appear in a certain way. SARS operatives wrongfully profile young men and women with dreadlocks, tattoos, piercings and expensive smartphones as criminals or Internet fraudsters.
This wrongful profiling has cost innocent young men and women their freedom and money also. As barbaric and inhumane as it sounds, it is clear that the NPF is running its ship based on a supposedly ‘moral centric’ leaning to identify criminals.
It would soon be a year of the anti-SARS movement online and despite the attempts to reform the Nigerian Police Force by citizens, nothing has been done about it by the Federal Government. The Buhari administration has been notoriously quiet on SARS and the #EndSARS movement. Not a whiff of a statement has come from the office of the President and the Vice-President.
To be safe from the current wave of events:
If you’re being harassed by the rouges (SARS) in uniform kindly save this numbers in your mobile phonephone Directory; 08057000001 or 08057000002 call any of the numbers and report. Bookmark, share this Post and Help yourself first!
The numbers are managed by SIAF NG, and other well meaning activists who are helping curb the menace caused by SARS.
