Police Spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi has taken to Twitter to tackle Nigerians who are quick to reference advanced countries when having an argument about Nigeria.
He asked such people if they have ever travelled to those countries they are referencing or just relying on hearsay.
According to him, those quick to compare Nigeria with advanced countries and how things are done over there should minimize it and form their opinions on experience because “seeing is believing”.
His tweets read,
“Hmm, people always refer to advanced countries in whatever argument they have, but come to think of it, have you been there? Or you rely on what you read? Seeing is believing, see it, and believe, so that you have first hand info.
Not all the time we refer to adv countries in our own issue. Pick the good, and leave the bad of the foreign ideas or ideologies. My take.”
In other news, a 29-year-old man, Rafiu Rahaman, has been arrested by detectives of the State Criminal Investigation Department in Lagos for faking his own kidnap.
The suspect, a staff of Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), is said to have traveled to Lugbe, Abuja, after faking his kidnap, where he made a video of himself in captivity, which was sent to his co-worker.
The spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who confirmed Rahaman’s arrest in a statement, confirmed that his accomplice, Usman Sheidu, who demanded a five million naira ransom but got one hundred and fifty thousand naira after extensive negotiation, has equally been arrested.
