Federal Government warns security agencies against Harassing Youths carrying Laptops

The Federal Ministry of Communications (FMC) has frowned at wrongful profiling of young Nigerians with computing devices like laptops, tablets by security agencies.

The Minister of Communications, Isa Pantami disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, admonished security agencies to exercise restraint from such act.

According to the Minister, if the trend continued unchecked, it will dampen the vigorous attempt at diversifying the economy and push more young energies underground with catastrophic consequences

The Minister maintained that though it is aware that several other persons engage in internet fraud using computers and similar devices, caution must be applied so as not to paint all young Nigerians with a similar brush.
