It is no longer news that Nigerian rapper, Naira Marley was arrested alongside Zlatan, Rahman Jago and two others in connection with internet fraud also known as ‘Yahoo Yahoo’.
Prior to their arrest, Rugedman had cautioned Naira Marley over his brazen support for internet fraudsters known as ‘Yahoo Boys’.
Following the arrest of Naira Marley and his gang, a few Nigerians took to their social media pages, alleging that Ruggedman is responsible for their arrest.
The outspoken rapper has taken to his social media page to debunk the claims.
According to him:”I have read and heard all sorts of comments pertaining to the Naira Marley case and seen the misinformation making the rounds which is quite unfortunate to say the least.
I do not know Naira Marley personally, the same way I do not know the over 300 Nigerians I have gotten justice for against police brutality. I do it because it is who I am.
All I did was caution a young artist, who has influence, against making utterances about an issue that by global standard is considered a crime. I believe correcting this was the way to go as an elder, but got insulted for this even by those being misled.
I hereby state categorically that I had nothing to do with his arrest.
We all must recall that he glorified fraud on a public platform where security agencies like the Police, NDLEA and EFCC are also on.
I am sure they saw his posts and captions the same way we all did. I, however, was the one that cautioned him. I guess this was what led all the darts and arrows my way as a literal mortal retribution to my person”.
