Just like Noble Igwe, the creative director and lead producer at Soundcity TV, Olamide Adedeji, has also reacted to the recent raid of Club 57 in Lagos, in which over 13 suspected internet fraudsters ‘yahoo boys‘, were arrested by the EFCC.
According to Olamide who slammed those idolizing yahoo boys, it is not the Nigerian dream. He went further to disclose that yahoo boys are armed robbers, armed with computers harming people and corporations.
His tweets reads;
‘Yahoo boys are armed robbers. Armed with computers harming people and corporations. So please, file them next to Drug dealers, thieves, money launderers etc. They don’t deserve to be glorified, praised or emulated. We need this reality check’.
He added that, ‘for those that are idolizing Yahoo people. That isn’t the Nigerian dream. That is pure FRAUD! Imagine you wake up in the morning & your life savings are gone only to be used to pop champagne and drive cars and nurture bad habits. Authorities must nip this trend in the bud, FAST!’.
Noble Igwe who also reacted to the report, had called on the EFCC to do more as he listed some major fraud fronts in Nigeria.
His tweets reads;
Record label Estate/ Property Business Car Selling business The Above are major 419 /fraud fronts in Nigeria.
EFCC needs to have a waiter stationed at every club within Lekki & VI. After last night,club owners are going to record low sales and Uber drivers will be busy tonight.
Online stores and stores on Admiralty/Fola Osibo are used for money laundering.
Armed robbers on instagram are regarded as G boys but in reality,their’s a different type of stealing.
People steal and then turn around to blame the government for making them criminals. Anyone that defends a criminal is a criminal and while we have a list for people advocating rape culture,we should also have one for such people.
An armed robber is an armed robber. You are a thief armed with a computer.
