BORROWED GOVERNMENT VEHICLES CANNOT BE USED AT ANY ELECTION.

No person in any part of Nigeria is allowed to use a borrowed government vehicle or boat or that of any company owned by government at any registration center or polling unit. It is only a person who is ordinarily assigned to use a government vehicle or boat that can use such at a registration center or polling unit. Also note that in an emergency, an electoral officer can use even a borrowed government vehicle or boat at a registration center or polling unit.
The offence of use of borrowed government vehicle or boat at registration centre or polling unit is punishable with fine of not more than N500,000.00 and or not more than 6 months imprisonment.

My authorities are sections 121 and 158 of the Electoral Act, 2010.

(Tip 135)
“It is Illegal To Pay Police or Any Security Agency For Recovery Of Any Stolen Money or Items”.

It is the duty of Police and other security agencies to protect lives and property. They investigate crimes, recover stolen money and items for FREE because government pays them salaries and provides or should provide other needed supports.
Hence, no security agency is permitted to demand for any payment as success fee or mobilisation fee. They are not entitled to any percentage of recovered stolen property. All services rendered in police station are FREE including Bail and Recovery of stolen items. Report any police officer or security agent that demands money to do its work or for doing its work. Stop corruption!

My authority; Police Act.

“Houses, Emails, Phones, Computers, Bank Accounts and Other Personal Items Cannot Be Merely Searched and Seized By Nigerian Police”.

In Nigeria, there is “Right to Private and Family Life” as a fundamental human right of all persons in Nigeria(including literates and illiterates, Young and Old, Students and Workers, Nigerians and Foreigners).
Hence, Police, SARS and other security agencies and their agents CANNOT break into and search your house or search through your phones, laptops, emails or bank accounts. Before any of the above activities can be done, the security agency must first obtain and show to you an order of court authorising such activities. Unprofessional policing is a crime.

My authority: section 37 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999.

“It Is Not a Crime to Be a Debtor In Nigeria”.

Being a debtor is not a Crime in Nigeria and Debt is not an offence in any part of Nigeria. Even failure to pay debt after such was demanded is also not an offence so far as there is no intention to defraud or commit an offence. No security agency including Nigeria Police, EFCC, State Security Services, Nigeria Army and vigilante groups has right to intervene, arrest, harass or detain a debtor or order repayment of debt. You recover debt by engaging a lawyer.

My authority: Section 2 of Criminal Code Act and section 4 of Penal Code Act.

“Right of Nigeria Police Force to Demand For Driver’s License and Other Vehicle Documents”.

Often drivers argue that police officers are for crimes and cannot do the work of members of Federal Road Safety Commission. Please note that Nigerian police is established to protect live and property as well as maintain law and order. Hence, Nigerian police has general powers to do all that any security organisation or agency is specifically authorised to do, including military duties within and outside Nigeria.
