His arrest might be in connection with his statements on social media which glorifies internet fraudsters aka Yahoo boys.
Last month, Naira Marley took to Instagram to defend internet fraudsters popularly known as ‘Yahoo-Yahoo’, saying it is not a crime.
In the defense of the fraudsters, the musical artist stated that Yahoo-Yahoo is not a crime because slave trade justifies it. He wrote:
If u know about slavery u go know say yahoo no b crime..
In another post, he called on Nigerians to pray for Yahoo boys:
“All you guys, all the money in your pockets, all the money you spend, you think it’s the government that is making the money go round?
You better sit down and pray for yahoo boys. If them stop yahoo, the money would not pass you guys”, he said.
