The two artists were arrested in the early hours of today. The arrest is to profile them and know their affiliation with internet fraudster popularly referred to as “yahoo yahoo.”

The graft agency seized their laptop and phones. EFCC is to conduct forensics on the phones and laptops. The aim is to determine their link to cybercrime.

This may be not unconnected with their recent song. The song is reportedly glorifying cyber crimes. The song is titled “am I a yahoo boy?”

Ruggedman’s video has gone viral this week in which the rapper called out Naira Marley for advocating Internet fraud. The artiste noted that the promotion of such cyber crimes impacted negatively on Nigerians abroad.

However, Naira Marley responded in a recent song titled ‘Am I A Yahoo Boy,’ mocking Ruggedman in an Instagram video and defended his artistic choices.

Recall that the EFCC  launched Operation Cyber Storm last year. This is sought to curb the activities of Internet fraudsters. Since the launch, over 150 suspects have been reportedly arrested across the country.
