Earlier today, we reported that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission arrested singer Afeez Fashola aka Nairamarley which we believed was as a result of his recent show of support for yahoo boys.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has now confirmed the arrest and explained why he was arrested.
Confirming his arrest, the acting EFCC spokesperson, Tony Orilade, in an interview with Punch, said;
“Yes, he is with us. He’s not the only person; he had some other persons also arrested alongside (him). They were arrested in relation to advance fee fraud — Internet-related cases and all of that. Give me a little time and I will get you the details.”
However, popular Nigerian police officer, CSP Dolapo Badmus has taken to her IG page to shade singer Nairamarley following his arrest following his arrest by the EFCC.
Taking to her Instagram page, she wrote
”The only authentic NAIRA I know is Nigeria’s legal tender. Any other naira attached to something is a counterfeit!
Naira Marley who released the official video of his hit track, ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy’ featuring Zlatan on Thursday night has been in the news lately for so many ‘Yahoo’ related posts.
Naira Marley during a recent Instagram live session, urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) saying they are the reason money circulates to the common man.
In his words, “All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?” The video has since stirred reactions from Nigerians who described Marley as a disgrace and bad example to young Nigerians.
