- Popular Catholic priest, Father Oluoma strongly preaches against internet fraud and those who engage in it
- The reverend speaks on the effect of such act but to the perpetrators and the victims
- He yahoo boys to better defraud politicians instead of innocent people
Well-known Catholic priest Rev Father Chinenye Oluoma expressed his harsh displeasure of young Nigerians engaged in internet fraud.
Father Oluoma spoke to his congregation and conveyed his concern regarding the negative repercussions that such immoral behavior can have on both the perpetrators and their victims.
The sermon, which was captured on video and posted to his official Facebook page, struck a chord with a lot of online users.
Father Oluoma started by lamenting on the terrible way that “Yahoo boys” deceive helpless people and dupe them of their hard-earned money.
He stated that people who engage in such actions may not see great result if they continue on that path.
He also questioned the arrogance of those fraudsters who grow enraged when confronted by ministers and the general public.
In his words;
“When you pursue wealth at the expense of fellow humans, you are trashing people to get a treasure that will be a trash in your life.
“I don’t understand when people who steal and dupe others get angry when ministers condemn it. Yahoo means a set of people who will just lock themselves in a house, look for somebody who is vulnerable using their computers and dupe the person everything he laboured for.
“Then the person becomes so broke after 30 to 40 years of labouring. You steal everything the person has and the person is dying of depression, High Blood Pressure and heart attack and you are comfortable.
“That some musicians even sing to endorse that kind of lifestyle means to you that it is normal? If Yahoo means tricking people, defrauding them of their hard-earned money, leaving them penniless and they die of heart attack, how do you want to end well? Some people even consider it as a legitimate hustle.
“How can stealing be a legitimate hustle? If you are that kind of person, you can’t end well. If you are into such a thing, please don’t marry because if you marry and you give birth, your children will suffer the consequences.
“At least if you want to be a Yahoo, target politicians who are stealing money. But you won’t target such people, it is people who worked honestly. At least, target the bad politicians so that on the last day you and God may have conversations on it”.
Taking to Facebook to air his opinion, Rev. Fr. Kelvin Ugwu teased women who condemned the couple but now wish to be with Ned. The Catholic priest stated that women in this aforementioned category do not care about polygamy once the man in question is rich. He wrote:
“Those shouting that they hate polygamy are now wishing to be Ned Nwoko’s next wife. Say the truth and nobody will beat you, what you hate is not polygamy but poor polygamists. What you abhor is not old men, but poor old men.”
