Mixed reactions have started trailing the arrest of Naira Marley by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

As we earlier reported, the EFCC arrested the popular musician, Naira Marley, real name Afeez Fashola, though the reason for the arrest remains unknown.

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

Just as we all know, the singer recently endorsed internet fraud, while also releasing a controversial song titled, “Am I A Yahoo Boy.”

Weirdly the singer was arrested today, 10th May 2019, which also happens to be his birthday. See some reactions that have trailed the turn of event;
