The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has allegedly arrested Afeez Fashola, Nigerian singer better known as Naira Marley.
Naira Marley was arrested in Lagos on his birthday, Friday, May 10, 2019.
The singer has been in the news recently for advocating the cause of internet fraudsters.
During an Instagram live session in April, 2019, he had urged Nigerians to pray for Yahoo boys “as they are crucial to the circulation of money in the economy”. 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? You better sit down and pray for yahoo boys. If dem stop yahoo, the money would not pass you guys.
“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”.
On Thursday, May 9, 2019, the singer released the video of his single ‘Am I a Yahoo Boy?’.
