  1. Some individuals in Nigeria have embraced cybercrime as a way of life. Some got rich while some people have been caught by law. This crime is denting and drilling holes the economy of the Nation. Government needs to find a lasting solution to the menace this cybercrime has caused the Nation. A tougher laws should be enacted and implemented to curb this criminality.
