Obi during a recent interview, lamented about the fate of Nigerian youths in the hands of security operatives who are in the habit of harassing them any time they see them with laptop.
According to Obi, a Nigerian youth stands the risk of going to jail just because of holding a laptop.
Obi stated this while speaking on ‘The Morning Show program on Arise TV.
He argued that while youths in other countries are being given laptops, youths found with laptop at any security checkpoint in Nigeria are being treated as criminals by the Nigerian security authorities.
