Some Nigerians have reacted angrily against EFCC over indiscriminate arrest and illegal profiling of young men as internet fraudsters.
TheConscience reports that the citizens blasted the operatives and authorities of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC for sensationalising the indiscriminate arrest and illegal parade of young Nigerian men, describing it as wicked and unfair.
While lamenting on social media, the citizens condemned the EFCC and its operatives for being fond of rounding up young men based on flamboyant dressing and ostentatious lifestyle and labeling them Yahoo Boys in a fashion similar to the now disbanded Special Anti Robbery Squard, SARS now FSARS.
They maintained that it is unjust to parade suspects needlessly when there are no established cases of crimes against them in a competent court of law. They charged the EFCC to focus on prosecuting diligently rather than hurriedly parading ‘innocent’ young men as fraudsters.
