EFCC arrested the duo at Zlatan’s house in the early hours of Friday, to profile them in order to establish their affiliations with internet fraudsters.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested two Nigerian musicians, Naira Marley, whose real name Afeez Fashola and Zlatan Ibile, whose real name is Omomniyi Temidayo.

The EFCC arrested the duo at Zlatan’s house in the early hours of Friday, to profile them in order to establish their affiliations with internet fraudsters popularly called ‘yahoo yahoo’.

Although the reason behind his arrest is yet to be made public, it might be in connection with his statements on social media which glorifies internet fraudsters, popularly called Yahoo boys.

According to SaharaReporters, A top source at the EFCC said the graft agency has seized their laptops and phones to conduct forensics to determine their link to cybercrime.

The source added that of the two artistes are also under the agency’s investigation for songs and comments glorifying cybercrime; most recently “am i a yahoo boy?” released on Thursday.

Naira Marley has somewhat become an advocate for cybercrime as he even bashed other celebs who tried to go against his views.

It all started when popular singer, Simi, discouraged Yahoo boys from listening to her music. Then Marley took it upon himself to call the singer out as well as praise Yahoo boys.

On one of his Instagram Live videos, Naira Marley urged Nigerians to pray for Yahoo boys because they make money circulate and not the politicians.
