BBNaija star Seyi Awolowo has attributed the low rate of nefarious activities like cultism, robbery, and kidnapping to the presence of yahoo fraud.
He spoke in a recent interview where he said that hen used to be bullied by cultist in his University days but the emergence of yahoo made people lose interest in cultism and joined yahoo fraud.
He said: “I don’t stand for the yahoo-yahoo thing. But do you know that yahoo is the reason we don’t have really high amount of cultism?”
“And this is just my perspective ‘cause when I was in university, I was always harassed by cultists. But then the next thing, there was a flow of yahoo and they all just disappeared.
“People that used to slap and want to obtain would now rather give. It is something bad, so overtime we abused it.
“Leaders who are supposed to make us see bad in it are doing worse things, stealing more money, and getting away with it. So yahoo boys are like, ‘if he can steal and get away, why can’t I? And I’m not even stealing from Nigeria’.”
