Don’t say what you can’t defend on socia media, Police spokesperson warns social media users

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the spokesperson of the Nigeria Police Force, has cautioned social media users not to comment on what they can’t defend.

The spokesperson said the police are out there searching for people who make careless and sarcastic comments online.

He also said that the police would catch those people one by one no matter what.

In a post shared on X, Adejobi reminded Nigerians of the existence of the Cybercrime Prohibition Act, 2015 which gives the court the jurisdiction to sentence anyone found guilty of making social media comments and claims they cannot defend in court.
