The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says it will need a petition in order to commence a probe against social media celebrities such as Ray Hushpuppi, Investor BJ, Baddy Osha, Opa6, Bayo Otunola and others who were mentioned in the song titled ‘Living Things’ by hip hop artiste, Abolore Akande aka 9ice.
The EFCC was responding to a suggestion by one of its followers on Twitter that the commission should go after all those hailed by 9ice in the song.
Twitter user, @onlydotcom, told the EFCC, “EFCC, sit down and listen to the song, Living Things, by 9ice and do your work with the fear of God. Nigeria will be better for it.”
The EFCC, while responding on Twitter,“Do you mean that (song) could be a petition? Not enough anyway.
“However, the Eagle still requests a written statement to support any allegation that has been made.”
One of the persons hailed by 9ice in the controversial song is Ismail Mustapha aka Mompha, who was arrested by the EFCC for alleged N14bn fraud last month.
