Due to to rising cases of Kidnappings and other forms of insecurity, I'll be sharing with you the new tactics or methods used by those perpetrating evil. > This is the new tactic used by Kidnappers and killers posing as Police officers or other government officials. They'll get your number, call you and then tell you your number was calling them for emergency reasons. You that is feeling confused will simply tell them you didn't call them. They'll continue to insist that you called them, especially when they pose as police officers so as to sound more intimidating, but you will get more confused and continue to insist you didn't call them. The crazy thing about these kidnappers posing as police officers is that: they would've gotten your information from social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, naijaworld etc. Yes, they can even get it from naijaworld, remember one man that was responsible for the death of Hindy Umoren(the girl that got killed while looking for a job) was a naijaworlder. So, when they have these information, they (the kidnappers posing as officers) will use these information to convince you and make you feel like they know how to get you or they're tracking you. Some might even send you a picture of yourself, so as to make you feel more tense. These people are extremely convincing and they're not playing games, especially when they know they can get a lot of money from you or your family members. Then, after they've worn you down with a lot of fear, threats and tension; they'll tell you to meet up with them somewhere to 'clarify' yourself. It's when you meet up with them or on your way to meet up with them that you become a victim. All they do is go on social media and get a lot of information about you. They are willing to cast their evil net far and wide. They may even get your own friends to give them information about you, including your home address. To those that do trade online: I'll advise you to be extra careful, including those that meet up with buyers/sellers. Always make sure you meet in public places like a Filling station, somewhere close to the police station or other government buildings, etc I don't know how it is in Nigeria, but while I was outside; buyers and sellers were allowed to meet up at places like police stations to trade, so as to guarantee security. If you're a student, you can meet up at the security post in your school, after you must have involved the security officials. Remember: your enemy cannot betray or easily harm you, only your friend or frenemy can. Your enemy cannot tell you to meet up with him/her at a place and you'll go, that's because you already sense danger. But, you friend can tell you to meet up somewhere and you'll go, without hesitation. You 'friend' knows where you stay, where you work/school, where you eat, the roads you pass, knows your relatives, etc Stay safe out there, folks! And be very careful about the kind of information you give out and the people you give them to!
