Reverend Father Calls on Online Scammers to Target Corrupt Politicians
Catholic Priest Urges 'Yahoo Boys' to Refocus Efforts on Corrupt Politicians
In a compelling call to action, Reverend Father Chinenye Oluoma, a widely respected figure in the Catholic community, has taken a strong stance against the escalating issue of internet fraud, urging online scammers to reconsider their actions. Addressing the notorious ‘Yahoo Boys’ in a video shared on his official Facebook page, Father Oluoma implored these fraudsters to cease their exploitative practices that target innocent individuals.
During a recent church sermon, Father Oluoma raised poignant ethical questions about the repercussions of these nefarious activities. He highlighted the inherent harm caused by swindling individuals out of their hard-earned money, often leading to financial ruin and even fatal consequences such as heart attacks. “If Yahoo means tricking people, defrauding them of their hard-earned money, leaving them penniless and they die of heart attack, how do you want to end well?” Father Oluoma questioned.
In his impassioned address, the Christian cleric invoked the divine consequences that these wrongdoers might face, emphasizing that their actions would incur the wrath of God. He offered a somber piece of advice, suggesting that those involved in fraudulent schemes should refrain from marrying, as their potential offspring could inherit the dire consequences of their actions. “If you are into such a thing, please don’t marry because if you marry and you give birth, your children will suffer the consequences,” Father Oluoma cautioned.
Furthermore, Father Oluoma challenged the notion of internet fraud as a “legitimate hustle.” He vehemently rejected the idea that stealing from others could be ethically justified and cautioned individuals who hold such beliefs that their paths were destined for ruin. “Some people even consider it as a legitimate hustle. How can stealing be a legitimate hustle? If you are that kind of person, you can’t end well,” he asserted.
Drawing a stark contrast between victims of fraud and those responsible for widespread corruption, Father Oluoma proposed an alternative focus for these scammers. He advocated for the redirection of their efforts toward corrupt politicians who, he claimed, were plundering the nation’s resources. He argued that if these scammers were to pursue a morally questionable path, they should at least target those who were actively contributing to the deterioration of the country’s economic and social fabric.
“At least if you want to be a Yahoo, target politicians who are stealing money. But you will not target such people, it is people who worked honestly. At least target the bad politicians so that on the last day you and God may have conversations on it,” Father Oluoma urged.
As the nation grapples with the pervasive issue of online fraud, Father Oluoma’s impassioned plea serves as a clarion call for introspection and ethical reconsideration. His words resonate not only within the confines of his congregation but also within the wider society, urging a reevaluation of values and actions in the digital age.
