As much as Government surveillance is done basically towards ensuring lives’ security/safety, crime control and state control, it has also been a channel over the years for lawless operations especially politically-driven operations for the embarrassment, oppression or eradication of political opposition’s or supposed enemies. This monitoring gathers information mostly via interception of internet systems for texts, audio or voice conversations, and location informations that are searched and tracked by automated devices/computers. In fact, expert criminal groups use surveillance for their crimes perpetuation.
In a sense, Government monitoring is an infringement on our privacy and puts our lives in jeopardy.
In the U.S, there is an act (law) that demands that all telecommunications conversations be made available and accessible for monitoring and scrutiny when necessary. This is purely bad encroachment, privacy rights violation and jeopardy all in one act- if we look at it critically and without prejudice.
In many developing countries, the government uses it to suppress oppositions.
In Nigeria, for instance, the Nigerian State Security Services, a.k.a, Department of State Security sometimes use surveillance to lawlessly arrest political enemies by locating their homes via location technology and other internet means such as social media and telecommunication conversations interception. A few top politicians and normal citizens have been tracked, forcefully arrested, prosecuted and convicted without through investigations and meaningful evidence.
Another case is that of the Special Anti-robbery Squad (Nigerian) who track alleged internet fraudsters. Many times, they track and arrest innocent, legitimate online freelancers based on their activities online. Rich young internet freelancers around are often abused by this squad. This is inhumane. Although, recently, the Nigerian government has responded to public complaints and have reduced the authority of this Security squad when it comes to internet fraud.
For a couple of years now, the rate of kidnapping has increased. Professional kidnappers abduct top political officials, universities lecturers, and famous citizens for millions of naira. They gather information about their victims via internet surveillance. Many abducted citizens been badly treated and many others have lost their lives.
