What Magu Said About Arrest Of Yahoo Boys



The acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, says that he is not happy arresting internet fraudsters, popularly called ‘Yahoo Boys.’

Naija News reports that the EFCC’s boss made this known while speaking on Tuesday, May 22, 2019, during an interactive session with artists, comedians and On-Air-Personalities (OAP).

He said; “I don’t like arresting them, but what can we do, we have to do our job”.

“While I restate our commitment to continue the intensity of rounding up internet fraudsters, I strongly urge you all to join hands with the EFCC to promote the culture and gospel of hard work with dignity.

The event took place at the EFCC Headquarters, Jabi, Abuja. The interactive session is among others aimed at addressing the impression that the EFCC is after musicians in the country.

Magu also spoke about the ordeal of popular musician, Afeez Fashola, aka Naira Marley, who was arrested by the EFCC in Lagos on his birthday, May 10.
