Ex BBNaija housemate, Seyi Awolowo has come out to say that cyber fraud in Nigeria is the reason for the low rate of crimes like cultism, robbery, and kidnapping in our nation.
He recently revealed during a recent chat with GoldMyneTV and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he is in no way supporting the yahoo-yahoo crime, but its emergence aided the disappearance of these other crimes.
He added that jobless boys that used to slap and steal from people now give out to those around them because they are making so much money from a bad act.
His words, “I don’t stand for the yahoo-yahoo thing. But do you know that yahoo is the reason we don’t have really high amount of cultism?”
“And this is just my perspective ‘cause when I was in university, I was always harassed by cultists. But then the next thing, there was a flow of yahoo and they all just disappeared.”
“People that used to slap and want to obtain would now rather give. It is something bad, so overtime we abused it.”
“Leaders who are supposed to make us see bad in it are doing worse things, stealing more money, and getting away with it. So yahoo boys are like, ‘if he can steal and get away, why can’t I? And I’m not even stealing from Nigeria’”
