Twitter users on Thursday reacted as the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) posted rewritten lyrics of the popular song ‘Ali’ released by Steven Adeoye.
The lyrics of the music which encourages internet fraud read in part:
‘Ali go to school’
‘But Ali ko mowe’
‘So Ali leave the school’
‘Ali gbona le’ [Ali went home]
‘Ali buy Lapi’ [Ali buys a Laptop]
‘Ali no dey sleep’
‘Ali make money’
‘Now Ali dey happy’
‘I wanna be like Ali’
‘Kigboro ma sa mi’ [I want the street to hailing me]
The EFCC in its version of the lyrics warns Nigerians to “Stay away from corrupt practices, economic and financial crimes!”
‘Ali no wan finish School’
‘Ali wan flex and feel Cool’
‘He dey use Laptop as Tool’
‘To dupe person from Liverpool’
‘Now Ali dey run from Interpol’
‘Ali no wise, Ali na Fool’
Reacting to the post, a Twitter user @TMPNIGGA slammed the EFCC, he said; “EFCC you should first stay away from corruption by not taking bribes from criminals and set them free. Your focus should not be only on cybercrime too, politicians got us to where we are in this nation today since the time of Abacha loots”.
Another user, @obijoseph_c, said; “Aren’t you ashamed that we have the most corrupt leaders in the world and till date, non has been arrested and properly tried in court of law… You are coming to Twitter to post Laycon lyrics”.
Appreciating and admonishing the EFCC, a Twitter user @CjKrisEze said; “Inasmuch i appreciate your work to yahoo boys, i imploy you to also look into crimes related to business transaction and political crimes as well”.
