Nasiru Ali Kozzographa To Sue EFCC For Parading Him As ‘Yahoo Boy’ by Ify05: 9:18pm On Jun 09
An Abuja-based music producer, Mr Nasiru Ali, popularly known as “Kozzographa”, on Sunday threatened to sue the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for wrongly calling him a fraudster (Yahoo boy).

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ali was among 10 suspected internet fraudsters paraded on May 17 by EFCC operatives.

The EFCC personnel raided the suspect’s residence at Favour Land Estate, Life Camp, Abuja.

According to the EFCC, they were arrested following a tip-off by an anonymous source.

The agency said that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.

But Ali, in a petition to the EFCC Acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, on May 31, demanded a compensation of N100 million and an unreserved apology for arresting him wrongly and giving a libelous information to the public about him.

The musician, through his lawyer, Mr Pelumi Olajengbensi, said that he would drag the EFCC to court for refusing to retract the negative publications about him after a seven-day ultimatum.

“He lost a contract of five million naira with United Global Resolve for Peace (UNGREP), which he had been interviewed for and hitherto offered unequivocally because the contractors became disturbed and concerned by the publication thus doubtful of his reputation.

“He has been ostracised by his colleagues and associates as well as senior associates who usually refer to him for jobs in the past, thereby losing their trust and reference.

“He has been bombarded with a barrage of calls from friends and family members calling his reputation to question, while expressing their disappointment and indicating their intention to cut all connection with him forthwith.

“His relationship with his intended life partner has been irreparably strained by the negative publicity generated by the unlawful arrest, particularly the publication on your media platform on same matter.

“The publication has led to close clients taking their jobs off him and taking them to other persons thereby amounting to great level of loss and in some cases varying level of indebtedness,” Ali’s lawyer stated in the petition to EFCC.

Ali also claimed in the petition that his health and psychology had been affected following the Gestapo way he was arrested and assaulted by the commission operatives.

He said that the men that raided his home were dressed in black with no means of identifying them as officers of the EFCC

EFCC should be more clinical in their quest to please their master.. They are often too mechanical and appear to be lacking in the basics of their job..... I was wondering if we were beginning to have fake EFCC.... I always knew it would come to people suing for falsity..

You and the EFCC are the same....media trials everywhere. Why are you seeking sympathy on media. Go ahead to sue them and get justice..... That's character assassination, its a big offence. But be sure you are not what they accused you.

EFCC keeps arresting and parading youths without concrete evidence. Once you appear flashy and carry a laptop, you're a scammer to them. Same thing with the Nigerian Police.

It will soon get to the stage where boys will start attacking them all out of frustration... When you don't have evidence and u want to please your sponsors like the USA and Federal Government, but u refuse to go after the real criminals stealing our commonwealth all in the name of politics.

The Nigerian Police on their own part have tarnished their own image and they just bark everywhere. They're the real criminals in our society. Half of them are drug addicts and would never be in the force if Nigeria were a normal country.
