A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Tayo Oyetibo, on Thursday faulted the Federal Government’s proposed use of full-body scanners to screen international travellers passing through the country’s airports.

He added that the development was unconstititutional, saying that the proposed action would violate Nigerians’ rights to human dignity and privacy as enshrined in sections 34 (1) (a) and 37 of the 1999 Constitution

Oyetibo, who stated this in a statement made available to our correspondent in Lagos, reminded the government that the proposed action was illegal since the National Assembly was yet to make any law to authorise the use of the equipment.

According to the senior advocate, it is wrong for the government to take a precipitating action to justify the unwarranted decision of the United States’ placing of the country on the so called list of ‘security risk states.’
