Nigeria’s anti-graft agency, EFCC has been urged to stop the habit of rushing to social media to parade suspected yahoo boys.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been cautioned on the implication of rushing to parade arrested suspects..
Chairman of Ovation Media Group Dele Momodu called on the EFCC to stop such act.
He said EFCC should stop the parade of suspects who have not been prosecuted and convicted.
Mr Momodu’s appeal came after the EFCC’s latest parade of 10 internet fraud suspects in Lagos.
“I wish to appeal to EFCC & security agencies to stop rushing to parade pictures of young Nigerians on social media pages when their cases have not been prosecuted and they’re not convicted,” he said on Tuesday.
“This habit may permanently damage some of these guys permanently if later found innocent.”
Momodu also urged the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) to intervene in the matter.
“Our dear @officialefcc please, it is not every young Nigerian carrying laptop that is a Yahoo Yahoo fraudster… There is no way of repairing the damage of rushing to post pictures of innocent ones amongst the accused. I will appeal immediately to the NBA to intervene speedily,” he said.
The media mogul added that having a laptop should not be “automatically criminalised” in Nigeria.
“Many youths in most countries today make a living from IT and we should encourage ours,” he said.
