Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo State has said he would not ‘condemn those involved’ in cyber fraud.
Obaseki, who spoke an education town hall meeting, said: “I am concerned. Cyber fraud and Yahoo culture are big issues.
“I am calling on everyone to please send as much information as you can to my office. “On Monday, I am going to see the chairman of EFCC.
“I am not condemning those involved.
“There must be a reason why that culture has become so prolific in Edo state.
“We must find the root cause and address them as we did in the days of trafficking.
“The kind of things they do, how they hack into other people’s accounts.
“How do we re-direct that thinking into something more positive?,” the governor asked rhetorically.
