He said this is the same reason why Nigerians excel in sports and other sphere of life including scamming. Therefore, if they are the best at those other things, they also have to be the best at hacking.

He can be heard saying,

“The reason why Nigerians are known for scamming is not because we are bad people. It’s because we are smarter than a lot of people.”

Watch the video below.

This comes after 77 Nigerians were indicted and arrested by the FBI, in the biggest series of fraud case in the United States of America’s history. This has resulted in so many people slamming Nigerians and the country itself.

This led to NiDCOM in a letter signed by the Chairperson/CEO Abike Erewa-Dabiri stating that they resist Nigerians being stereotyped around the world.Most Nigerians also took to their social media platform to state that they are Nigerians but not criminals or fraudsters. They used different HashTags like #IamNotYahoo #NotAllOfUs #IamNigerianNotFraudster #IamNigerianNotaYahoo and more.
