Seyi Awolowo, reality star from the Big brother Naija 2019 season, has credited the presence of cyber fraud in Nigeria for the low rate of crimes like cultism, robbery, and kidnapping in the country.
Seyi made the controversial statement during a recent chat with GoldMyneTV.
In 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.”
