After the video surfaced online, the Twitter user identified as Kola Oyekan, called out the EFCC operator for using the term ‘Hustle’.
He argued that the term can be affiliated with vices and menace in society. Oyekan stated that the word hustle could also mean fraud and execution of illicit work.

“The word hustle also means fraud, obtain illicitly or by forceful action.
EFCC should know better.”

As a matter of fact, he gave another definition to the word hustle.
“Thank you for your comment, Mr Oyekan.
However, we are also aware that the word ‘hustle’ does not only mean “to obtain illicitly…”.
It can also mean “a state of great activity” or “to proceed or work rapidly or energetically”. #EFCCKnowsBetter
