This is following the two recent protests by the youths in Warri area of Delta State and that of Ibadan over unwarranted arrest and extortion by the anti-graft agency without any links to cybercrime.

Responding to the actions, Bawa noted that the exercise will not stop the agency from arresting anyone causing or promoting fraud in the country.

“Great! This is awesome news and I support it, but what about the ones that caused economic disaster: They’re walking freely in that same Abuja. Charity begins at home is all I’m saying.”

The comedian further shared screenshots of past news where different government personnel couldn’t account for the money in their care, yet walking freely.

The first screenshot reads:

The second screenshot reads:

“Nigeria’s vice president says $15 billion stolen in arms procurement fraud”; and the third reads: “Nigerian snake ate millions of naira, clerk says.”

Basketmouth, however, wrote, “I suggest we build a few animal prisons, their own is too much”.
