Abuja residents defy rain, storm EFCC music concert against Yahoo-Yahoo

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday organized a musical concert in the nation’s capital, to drum support of Abuja residents in their fight against internet fraud popularly dubbed, “Yahoo-Yahoo”.

The concert which brought together Abuja based music and comedy acts, literally lit up the city’s Unity Fountain venue of the event.

Many fun seekers who defied the heavy down pour that day, taking advantage of the public holiday to commemorate the Democracy Day Celebration, stormed the events in large numbers and were thrilled by the young stars, most of whom weaved their songs and comedy around the call to shun “Yahoo-Yahoo” and other forms of cyber crimes.

Some EFCC officials present at the concert spoke about the need for Nigerians to join hands with the anti-graft agency to bring an end to cyber crimes. According to them, Nigerians are highly resourceful and intelligent but their endowments should be put to noble use.

The EFCC chairman’s Special Adviser on media, Mr. Tony Amokeodo, in his remarks, said the agency put the concert together to drum support for the campaign against Yahoo-Yahoo. According to him, so many young people are caught in the web of the cyber-crime and thereby falling into the dragnet of the EFCC.

“The EFCC chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, saw the need to use the concert to draw young people’s attention to the dangers of engaging in Yahoo-Yahoo. Cyber-crime is bad and dangerous. It is tarnishing the image of the country and so many people are ending up in jail because of it.

“We appreciate the impact of music and comedy on young people and felt that a concert such as this will bring young people together and afford them the opportunity to listen to messages against Yahoo-Yahoo. The musicians and comedians all did justice to the theme and we believe that young people will shun cyber-crimes,” he said.

Some of the artistes who thrilled include Music Prokassy, Victor Velmo, Mic Steve, Young Fresh, Ambassador Wahala, Chuck D General, Nick B, Ghana Must Go and Koboko Master. Some participants won prizes for displaying their music talents.
