    WELDON, EFCC! YET I HOPE you guys had not forcefully arrested some innocent ones together with the real culprits. You know, speaking from hindsight, “This is Nigeria.”

      AND ON THE FLIP SIDE, I DO wonder why people still fall for ordinary emails they just received. Are we to say that these victims of yahoo “boiz” are in the first place either greedy or crooked themselves? I know that greed makes people not to reason properly, and analyze why, for instance, they were singled out to gain where they had not sown. I’m just thinking.

      Oga I am not Igbo…the fact that your name is hidden and doesn’t reveal your tribe means you have something to hide. Write where you are from and I will give you a long list of crime committed by your people. While Cyber or any other crim is not good, tribalising crime is bad and is part of Nigeria’s problem today.

    We Nigerians love to scandalize every crime as if we are not all part of it. Watching a video posted on internet about 80 Igbo guys arrested by FBI makes it look as if only Igbo boys are the ones engaging in such shameful act whereas this is also done by all other tribes as well. I’m not an Igbo man but let say the matter as it is.

    A little while ago the Chairman of EFCC Magu made a shocking revelation that they have discovered during their investigation that there are some mothers who are supporting their kids to be engaging in this criminality called yahoo yahoo . They always support themselves and doing everything to get their sons out of detention. Some of them don’t have shame and they always saying “ Se bi Owo Oyinbo ni” meaning this is a white mans money so they don’t see anything wrong in that fraudulent activity.
    They have formed an association of Yahoo! Yahoo!! Mothers where they celebrate one another if any of these gangsters hit jackpot. These people mostly are not Igbo but Yorubas.

    Our problem in this Country is how put an end to this show of shame business but guess what? we are not ready to impose a though measure to stop this Global endemic. When some of these apprehended guys are sobering in detention their parents are working tirelessly to get them out and we want to live in crime free Country. How many yahoo guys have you seen being convicted of the crime? none. May be the punishment is not severe enough. Until when we can figure out how to deal with these law breakers, don’t ever attribute this crime to only Indigbo guys alone.
