We Are Not After Musicians - EFCC Boss On Naira Marley’s Arrest

The acting Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, on Wednesday, said that the Commission was not going after musicians.

“I have said it in the past and I will also like to restate, that the EFCC does not go after an innocent person.

Speaking on the prosecution of musician, Afeez Fashola, a.k.a Naira Marley, for charges bordering on internet fraud at an interactieve session with artistes, comedians and On-Air-Personalities in Abuja, the EFCC boss said that the commission had no issue with any member of the entertainment sector of the country.

He said, “You have a very wide reach, so lend us your voices. Please let your works propagate and promote integrity and the right values.

“Our mandate is to rid Nigeria of any form of economic and financial crimes, and internet fraud is not excluded,”

Magu also sought to partner with Nigerian artistes and comedians in the fight against corruption particularly internet fraud.

“I urge you to raise a collective slogan against all forms of criminality among our youths, condemn in strong terms, ostentatious living without credible sources of income, particularly the get-rich-at-all-cost syndrome among the youths.
