Nigerians Beware of Cellphone Guns

The Cellphone Gun is nothing new. But I decided to blog this, because I know that most Nigerians are ignorant of it and we must beware of it showing up in Nigeria. And our security agencies have been ignorant of it. They have not been looking out for cellphone guns.

The Nigerian Police should be on the look out for these Cellphone Guns!

At first sight it looks like a regular cell phone — same size, same shape, same overall appearance.But beneath the digital face lies a .22-caliber pistol, a phone gun capable of firing four rounds in quick succession with a touch of the otherwise standard keypad. The US Department of Homeland Security and the FBI are aware of the device and have instructed baggage screeners to be on the lookout for suspicious mobile phones. This is especially after 9/11. European law enforcement officials — stunned by the discovery of these deadly decoys — say phone guns are changing the rules of engagement in Europe.Airport authorities across Europe are implementing systems to X-ray all cell phones
