Veteran comedian, Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome, popularly known as Ali Baba has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission, EFCC, not to spare entertainers encouraging crime.
Rather, he urged entertainers to collaborate with the EFCC by using their creative arts to fight against financial and internet crimes in Nigeria by living a life worthy of emulation for young Nigerians, who look onto them as role models.
The entertainer in an interview in Lagos, told the EFCC, “do not spare any of my colleagues in entertainment industry who uses
his or her work of art to encourage internet fraud, popularly known as yahoo-yahoo.”
Ali Baba, however, instructed his colleagues to use their profession to rewrite the narrative in the fight against corruption and
urged them to stay out of crime adding that the EFCC shouldn’t take it lightly in dealing with entertainers who encourage crime
especially, cyber crime.
