This Nigerian Was Arrested by the Police For Unlocking a Phone See Reasons

I am sharing this post because it could be helpful for most of you in the tech industry. There are many phone tweakers, phone technicians, etc here so this information is for you. The Police can now arrest you for unlocking a phone without receipt.
A man has been arrested and currently in Police Detention For Unlocking A Phone Without Demanding For Its Receipt.

Cases of reported stolen items are arguably one of the most carelessly handled issues in Nigeria. From unlawful arrests and detainment to unwarranted seizures of properties, the due process never seems to be properly applied.

A young man identified as Ayodeji has taken to the social media platform to express his grievances over what he believed was an unlawful arrest. Ayodeji, who works as a phone technician revealed how he was arrested over one of his recent jobs. According to him, he had initially unlocked a phone for a customer without demanding for its receipt of purchase and that eventually led to his arrest.

He wrote on Twitter:
