EndSars: Harassments of Youths With Laptops Will End Soon


Recommended Posts

This is not the first time Nigerians are protesting against police brutality, and not just about the brutality but once you are seen with a laptop, you may be harassed in some states, and the young Nigerians are not happy about that.

Well, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, on Wednesday, said the Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship Council chaired by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), would minimise the harassment of youths carrying laptops by law enforcement agencies nationwide.


Pantami disclosed this to State House correspondents after meeting the President who had earlier signed the Start-Up Bill into law.

There have been reports of young Nigerians being detained and harassed by law enforcement officers who misconstrue them for internet fraudsters upon sighting a laptop at their disposal.

This, among other factors, eventually led to the EndSARS protests of October 2020.

Pantami said Nigerians should expect a quicker response to cases of harassment. The Start-Up law passed on July 20, 2022 was a bill initiated by the executive arm and seeks to create an enabling environment for tech-based start-ups in Nigeria.

The law, Pantami explained, holds enormous benefits for the economy and will aid young start-ups to identify and express their business challenges much easier.
