EFCC Clears The Air About Witch-Hunting Nigerian Celebrities

A Twitter user recently called out the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest the Nigerian celebrities whose names were mentioned in 9ice’s 2016 single, “Living Things”.


In his tweet, he gave the anti-graft agency simple steps to be better at their job. See the tweet below:



The anti-graft agency was quick to respond to the sincere request of this patriotic Nigerian. In their response, they explained that the song was not enough to issue a petition. However, the commission will require a written statement to support any allegation made.



It seems the anti-graft commission is clearing the air just in case people think they are witch-hunting celebrities at the moment.


9ice released “Living Things” in 2016. In the song, he mentioned the names of some Lagos Big Boys that many perceive as fraudulent.


He also called the name of Dubai-based big boy Hushpuppi, who recently changed his profession on Instagram to “Real Estate Developer”. He formerly put “Gucci Master” on his bio. Likewise, Instagram celebrity Jaruma also cleared the air about her profession, saying that the luxury life she showcases is just a way of advertising her business. However, her name wasn’t mentioned in “Living Things”.


With EFCC’s Twitter reply, they are making a point that their “Eagle” eyes are out to fish anyone engaging in fraudulent activities. However, the commission would need concrete evidence while doing their job.


So for those who think EFCC isn’t doing their job with the “Fear of God” they should, first of all, be ready to bring their written statement to support their allegation.
