Human Rights Activist and Lawyer, Deji Adeyanju, Condemns Cybercrime Act Misuse

Human rights activist and Lawyer, Deji Adeyanju, has raised a concerning issue regarding the lack of law enforcement action against bandits and terrorists in Nigeria.

Taking to his Facebook page on Sunday, Deji Adeyanju expressed his outrage over the misuse of the Cybercrime Act. He highlighted the Nigerian police’s role in enforcing the Act against individuals who speak out against powerful figures, while failing to address genuine cybercrimes and other serious security threats.

Adeyanju said that while these criminal elements openly flaunt their activities on social media platforms like TikTok, the Nigerian police seem reluctant to confront them.

Adeyanju wrote, “As we speak right now, bandits and terrorists are on TIKTOK having fun but no police in Nigeria will dare go after them. The Police even struggle to pose with bandits for pictures in Zamfara. If the Nigerian police are not arresting people with Cybercrime Act on behalf of big men & women, they are on social media playing to the gallery.”

Adeyanju’s comments reflect a growing concern among Nigerians regarding the state of press freedom and the rule of law in the country. He and others continue to call for greater accountability and transparency from both the police force and the government in order to protect the rights and well-being of Nigerian citizens.
