Former Presidential aide Reno Omokri has said no where in the world are security officials allowed to search people’s mobile phones.

There have been reports that officials of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) search phones of suspected criminals.

Reacting to the report, Omokri wrote on Twitter that it was during the military regime that such happened.

“What reason can SARS officials have for taking people’s phones and going through them? The last time I personally experienced this was during the Abacha years,” he wrote.

“What has Buhari turned Nigeria into? Are we still a democracy? What did my people do to deserve such a government?”
