The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), has arrested Nigerian rapper, Naira Marley.

The ‘Issa Goal’ singer is currently being questioned at the EFFC office in Lagos.

The reasons for his arrest have not been made public but it is believed to be in connection with his statements on social media glorifying internet fraud.

Naira Marley had on Thursday released the official video of latest single, Am I A Yahoo Boy, featuring Zlatan Ibile.

In April, the controversial rapper said in an Instagram post that if anyone knew about the transatlantic slave trade they would not refer to ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ as a crime.

He also urged Nigerians to pray for cybercriminals because they contribute to the economy.

His comments caused a storm on social media with some criticising him and others supporting him.
