Naira Abuse: Seun Jimoh berates EFCC for making celebrities scapegoat

Nollywood actor, Seun Jimoh has taken to his social media to criticize the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for leveraging celebrities as scapegoats in the fight against naira abuse.

On his Instagram page, he queried if any civil rights group has no interest in opposing the prosecution of the naira given that it is a deeply ingrained cultural culture

He believes that celebrities are unfairly singled out to send a message to the general populace about the abuse of naira by the EFCC.

His words: “So no civil rights group can challenge the prosecution of spraying Naira ? a long imbibed cultural norm, a practice that is as old as the country itself and has deeply rooted cultural imprints, I understand wanting to curb the transactional sale of Naira for Naira at parties, but to say people should stop spraying money at parties is almost at loggerheads heads with our deeply rich partying culture! There must be a way around it!”

“It looks like scapegoats are being selected to send a message to the general populace . but then , is it not unfair that certain people are being selected for a crime almost 70 % of Nigerians or more are guilty of with overwhelming video evidences all over the internet? ! Why isn’t anyone ever caught on video spraying money between the time the law has been in effect till now being arrested ?! Why celebrities? Celebrities and citizens too ! This scapegoat approach to cultural reforms is quite sinister and lacks any concern for the mental health of the Nigerian citizens.”
