Stop Doing Yahoo Yahoo – Security Experts Take War to Secondary Schools

Secondary school students across Lagos have been severely warned against engaging in cyber-crime activities popularly known as Yahoo Yahoo as well as other suspicious dealings considered as crimes against humanity.
The warning came from security experts who had a session with different secondary school students from across the state as part of the police-citizens partnership in preventing cyber-crime to celebrate the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).
Stephen Kuti, the Operations Officer in charge of Anti-Cultism Unit of Lagos State Police Command was present at the session and he revealed that the point of the event was to show and teach students the negative consequences cyber-crimes and related activities has on the nation as well as the individuals involved.
He said: “We are looking at eradicating cyber-crime from the mindset of this young ones. Our aim is to impart this knowledge into them because whatever they have in their minds now is what they grow up with. From this tender age, if you can correct the impression that it is very wrong to do cyber-crime related activities, then we must have gone a long way in tackling the menace before it gets out of hand.”
The programme was put together by International Center for Leadership Development Nigeria (ICLDG) in partnership with the Nigeria Policing Programme (NPP) with the theme “Own it, Secure it, Protect it”, with the aim of educating the young and impressionable participants on the dire consequences of cyber-crime be it economically or to individuals.
The Lagos Sate Intervention Officer, NPP, Ivy Basil-Ofili also said, “It is more possible to cub the excesses of this young people now before they grow up to making decisions of their own” adding “The police can only do the work of protecting lives and properties by arresting offenders, but the duty of prosecution is left for the judiciary to handle.”
She added that stringent punishments for these crimes would serve as a deterrence to citizens from committing breaking the law.

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.
