Nigerian rapper, Erhiga Agarivbie, better known as Erigga, has reacted to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) 15-year jail term penalty for landlords who rent houses to internet fraudsters, popularly called “Yahoo Boys.”
The anti-graft agency recently warned that landlords who rent their houses to yahoo boys risk 15 years of imprisonment.
“Okay now! what a juicy topic E go sweet wella. Landlords way yahoo-boy dey stay him house, my people na 15 years imprisonment for the landlord o! E don set!”, a post on EFCC’s official Instagram page reads.
Reacting, Erigga then asked what the punishment for corrupt rulers of the country would be.
“Dem say 15 years imprisonment for landlord when rent house to yahoo boy but what about country when yahoo men dey rule?” Erigga asked on Twitter.
In other news, a Nigerian man identified as Tope has taken to his social media page to make a case for Internet Fraud, locally known as Yahoo.
Yesterday on social media, the issue of “Cultism” and its wrong impact in universities and the society at large trended on micro-blogging site, Twitter.
Many social media users recalled their time in school and the experience they had with rampaging cultists – long story short, it was not a pleasant experience.
However, Tope feels “yahoo” reduced Cultism in campuses, as one “non-violent” crime replaced another.
