The Zone 2 Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Onikan, Lagos, in the person of Dolapo Badmus has thrown shade at the singer, Naira Marley as news circulates that the he has been arrested by EFCC on his birthday.
Dolapo Badmus, who poses a strong dislike against internet fraudsters popularly known as Yahoo boys, took to her Instagram page to mock the Yahoo boys advocate.
The police officer wrote,
The only authentic NAIRA I know is Nigeria’s legal tender. Any other naira attached to something is a counterfeit!
According to reports, Naira Marley is currently being questioned at the EFFC office in the Ikoyi area of Lagos.
According to reports, his arrest might be in connection with his recent statements on social media which glorifies Yahoo boys.
Naira Marley has been making headlines after he shared a post on his Instagram page suggesting that he had a soft spot for people involved in Internet fraud, saying Yahoo is not a crime, it is a payback for enslaving blacks centuries ago.
During a recent Instagram live session, he urged Nigerians to pray for internet fraudsters (Yahoo boys) saying they are the reason money circulates to the common man.
He said: “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?”
The video has since stirred reactions from Nigerians who described Marley as a disgrace and bad example to young Nigerians.
However, a few Nigerians supported Marley, stating that Yahoo boys were the reason some Nigerians can eat and survive.
The singer is popular for his 2017 hit song titled ’Issa goal.’
