It’s no longer news how Nigerians and mostly youths face daily harassment by some Police and SARS officers for almost no reasons.
It is sometimes very frustrating and annoying to be harassed by officers who You’re supposed to find peace in but i sometimes the solution is in our hands as youths.
Whenever there’s an harassment story, many throw shades at the Police and SARS officers ignoring the part of the youths in whatever happened. As it is, all we ( youths ) have to do is follow some simple principles that will avert future occurrences as such.
Here are my 2 ( two ) proven ways to avoid such harassment this new year 2020.
1. Stay Clean
This is one of the most crucial part of avoiding such harassment from Police and SARS officers and it’s in two phases ( Looks, Phone ).
- Looks – as a matter of fact, your looks as a Nigerian youth has so much to do with how you’re addressed by these Police and SARS officers and that’s by the way a big deal. “The way You dress is how you’ll be addressed and that’s really a big issue with some Nigerian Youths especially when it comes to the part of “Marlians“. For me, i’ll say dress cool and You’ll barely encounter these men in the harassment form. Stay clean and Look good.
- Phone – keep your phone clean; if You didn’t know, keeping your phone 100% clean off contents that could incriminate You reflects all over You and that determines how these men deal with You.
2. Be Polite
You’ll agree with me that most harassment issues involving officers of the Nigeria Police and SARS have been partially due to impolite attitude shown towards these men which most times make them react otherwise.
You don’t want issues with these men this new year, You’ll have to take your manners everywhere You go. Yes you might want to state your rights as a Nigerian but showing some good manners would do absolutely no harm.
That’s all! I hope You don’t face any harassments from these men thsi new year 2020. Do have a blessed 2020 ahead.
Thank me later 😇
