The Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Drainage and Water Resources, Joe Igbokwe has reacted to the arrest of Nigerians in Texas for fraud.
Igbokwe posted in his Social Media page a headline publication titled "$117 Million Fraud, FBI arrest 35 Nigerians in Texas". He reacted by posting that crime does not pay as such people should do genuine jobs.
It is worrisome the rate at which Nigerian youths have taken to cyber related crimes within and outside the country.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has continuously arrest, parade and prosecute youths involved in Internet fraud and it's related activities. This is to serve as punishment to them and a deterrent to others but it has not yielded the expected impact as some youths have imbibed the culture of being involved in Cyber Crime as the fastest means to wealth. They no more believe in hard work or dignity in labour.
Here is what igbokwe posted;
