Following the increasing spate at which security agents are killing Nigerians unjustly, a man, Akinbusola Babatunde, has shared a list of ways people can avoid being victims of extrajudicial killings.
Members of the public are strongly advised to take note of the following as u kindly share it as well:
1-For your own good, whenever law enforcement agents (whether in uniform or not) stop a vehicle you boarded, stay calm, avoid hissing and grumbling. Whether you are a man or a woman, respect them.
2-Please take the receipts of your electronic equipment, laptop or other bulk gadgets (original or photocopy), anywhere you go if you must carry them.
3-If you don’t have means of identification from your school or workplace, get at least a national ID card or driver’s licence. It is crucial.
4-Delete all your bank alerts, and transfer sensitive information into a flash drive or memory card. Keep your financial transactions away from your phone.

6-If you must move at night no matter how close to your house, take your ID card and let someone go with you.

8-If you are given a vehicle to go for an errand, make sure all documents are complete and up- to- date. Also, your driver’s licence must be complete before you hit the road.
9-When your car is being searched, don’t just look away in anger; they are doing their job. Just pay close attention to what’s going on, to avoid “had I known”.
10-If you are not sure of what someone is carrying in a bag, pack, or sack, please ask politely before accepting to give the person a ride. You may be arrested for what you know nothing about.
11-After any stranger you decide to give a lift comes down, move forward a little, park and search your vehicle very well before you continue so as to avoid harbouring any incriminating objects left behind.
12-It is mandatorily necessary you don’t keep this message to yourself alone…
