A Nigerian man simply identified as Oladimeji, has alleged that an officer of the Special Anti Robbery Squad forcefully took his phone and was checking his wife’s nude photos on his phone.
Oladimeji said the officers demanded his ID card and kept insisting that his wife leaves him to them while they looked through his phones.
He said the SARS officer who forced him to unlock his phone kept trying to prove to him that his wife’s nude photos are not a big deal.
Oladimeji in series of tweets explained all that transpired between them; he wrote,
“My wife and I just got stopped by SARS and I haven’t felt more violated and powerless. Our offence? I look like a yahoo boy because I had on a face cap, t-shirt, short and neck piece.
“I pride myself on defending in all things but today, she had to come out of the taxify and stand by their bus door while they interrogated me.
“I knew my rights but I’m not about to argue people with guns and apparently above the law.
“They demanded my ID card and kept insisting my wife leaves me to them while they looked through my phones. This man was going through unclad pictures of my wife and he kept trying to prove to me why it’s no big deal.
“Apparently, some people are angry that I have my wife’s unclad pictures on my phone that is only accessible by my fingerprint or hers, my own wife ooo.
“No, they left us when my wife wouldn’t leave me alone with them and they couldn’t find anything to hold against me.”
Meanwhile, his tweets have generated outrage on the internet with many asking why SARS officer would view a man’s wife nude photos on his phone.
Some also condemned and called out the Nigerian police over the incessant reports of harassment, sexual assaults and abuse by SARS.

Sorry to hear about those animals looking at your woman’s glorious pictures. If you’re using an iPhone download this app. It’s so much better because no one can suspect it as the icon is a calculator. pic.twitter.com/QZPA4zuE5N

I still refused to understand what right these people have to be going thru civilian’s phones without any warrant or an permit from court of law.
If they will check phone, why does it have to be photo gallery?
This is very painful like it happened to mehttps://t.co/EL21HK8nSJ
