Re: Nigerian Cybercrime Matures..
After reading your write up about the emergence of Nigerian Cybercrime. I keep wondering if you have not really miss some important key elements in your article. For full disclosure. I am a Nigerian American. Degree in law and MBA. I am also into Cyber Security, the issues above has a lot to do with more than 10 millions graduates from various university from the region. The unemployed youths are much more sophiscated more than what is being reported. They are left with no option than to look into the web to come up with an idea of defrauding the society that they find themselves. This is by no means of justification for them. But, just letting you know that without no jobs they will look for any means to survive. To them, the rationalisation is that they need to survive. I grew up in africa. I know first hand the struggle over there. with access to the internet, the world has become a global village whereby anyone can access any information at anytime at anywhere. The government of these countries need to provide for an enabling environments for these youths by creating jobs for them in order to deter them from illegal activities.
