Months after his arrest, Nigerian star Naira Marley has asserted that the true perpetrators of cybercrimes in the country are freely moving about without a shred of suspicion.
Marley, real name Azeez Fashola, was arrested by officials of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on 10th May 2019, with 11 counts of criminal charges levelled against him.
He pleads ‘not guilty’, but the ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy’ crooner says he is waiting in eager anticipation for the arrest of the “real yahoo boys [fradusters] in Nigeria.”
He wrote on Twitter: “I cannot wait till you lot find out who the real yahoo boys in Nigeria are.”
Naira Marley adde, “We inna country where people don’t even ask the government for help anymore. We just ask them to change, is that too much to ask for?
“If I talk too much they will lock me up again, it’s not a threat it’s the truth. F#ck I’m on bail.”
As expected, the tweet triggered mixed reactions on the social media platform as web users gave conveyed their opinion while others opined that the entertainer was only trying to vindicate himself.
Naira Marley’s comments come just two days after the musician called on the government to allow young wealthy Nigerians “feel at home” and contribute towards the nation’s development.
He argues that the unfavourable conditions in Nigeria have compelled many people to move to Dubai to invest their money in the United Arab Emirates’ city.
