Nigerians have called out the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over a comment made by Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola, better known as Naira Marley on internet fraud with respect to slavery.

This online news platform understands that Naira Marley made this comment during an Instagram live session on Tuesday.

During the session, Naira Marley urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) “as they are crucial to the circulation of money in the economy.”

“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? You better sit down and pray for yahoo boys. If dem stop yahoo, the money would not pass you guys,” he said.

“The money will go like this, from Obasanjo to Tinubu, from Tinubu to Mr Japa, you think me I need Yahoo? I make money from my music,” the ‘Japa’ crooner said.

Apparently displeased with the statement, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to alert EFCC and also berate the anti-graft agency for not taking action.
