The creative director and lead producer at Soundcity TV, Olamide Adedeji, has joined Noble Igwe in reacting to the recent raid of Club 57 by EFCC during which 12 suspected Yahoo boys were arrested and 10 cars recovered.
Reacting, Olamide said such boys should be labeled alongside drug dealers and armed robbers cos their activities end up hurting people. He also spoke of how they dig into people’s life savings, swindle it and use the money to pop champagne.
Via a series of tweets, Olamide Adedeji called on people to stop idolizing Yahoo boys cos they are not the Nigerian dream. ‘Yahoo boys are armed robbers. Armed with computers harming people and corporations. So please, file them next to Drug dealers, thieves, money launderers etc. They don’t deserve to be glorified, praised or emulated. We need this reality check’. ‘For those that are idolizing Yahoo people. That isn’t the Nigerian dream. That is pure FRAUD! Imagine you wake up in the morning & your life savings are gone only to be used to pop champagne and drive cars and nurture bad habits. Authorities must nip this trend in the bud, FAST!’, he said.
