So much is being said about the list of 80 Nigerians who have been arrested by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over internet fraud and as it stands Nigeria’s image which before now is already battered appears to be finally torn into shreds.
Several Nigerians have reacted to the incidence since it broke out on Thursday, in his reaction, popular blogger and political commentator, Japheth Omojuwa said ”If you are a cyberfraudster, irrespective of your location Malaysia, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa, the FBI know the colour of your passport. They know you, your friends and your relatives. If you stop now, you may escape jail. If you don’t, it’s only a matter of time!” while another twitter user, @DoubleEph said ”Imagine the boost to Nigeria’s image if the fraudsters were caught in Nigeria by Nigerian law enforcement and hundreds of millions returned? To me that’s the *real* damage – that Americans have had to do it. It’s the same damage from Malabu. Unspoken but it’s there”
