EFCC Arrests 15 Lagos Yahoo Boys, Recover Charms, Cars, SIM Cards, Coffins - Photos

The quest to make money and for the fact that Nigeria has overtaken India as the country that has the highest number of people living below the poverty level, and for the fact that one cannot find work to do anymore in Nigeria regardless of the certificates or credentials you possess, Nigerian youths has taken to fraud (Yahoo Yahoo) and rituals to make money.

Reports today suggests that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal office arrested 15 suspected Internet fraudsters for offences bordering on obtaining by false pretence, lottery scam and love scam.

The suspects are: Adeyemi Tiwatope, 20; Odeyemi Olawale, 20; Nike Afolabi Olaiya, 20; Awe Abimbola Ireti, 23; Yusuf Aliu Oluwafemi, 20; Osidipe Olatunbosun, 24; Tosin Adesanya, 19 and Adeyinka Bello, 17. Others are: Aliu Lukman, 18; Damilola Fatona, 20; Shonubi Adetola, 18; Adewale Babatunde, 17; Afolabi Lekan, 19; Awe Ayodele, 24 and Adeyemi Gbadebo, 19.

The suspects were arrested on Saturday, February 3, 2018 in the Shotubo and Awoluwo areas of Sagamu, Ogun State. Their arrest followed intelligence report received by the Commission about their criminal activities.

They were alleged to be living flamboyantly without legitimate sources of income. Items recovered from the suspects include laptops, phones bearing scanned forged documents, six exotic cars, charms and SIM cards, among others.

The EFCC also recovered coffins, calabashes and gourds from the home of a suspected kingpin of a syndicate of fraudsters, Adesanya R. Olaoluwa, who is currently under the EFCC watch. Olaoluwa is alleged to be a herbalist who performs rituals for fraudsters to hypnotise unsuspecting victims.

The suspects will soon be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.

Editor's Note:

Yes they have been arrested but trust me, arresting these boys is not the solution to this nonsense that have infested our country. Provide job for this boys and they will work and earn a living. Can you imagine someone, after spending time and money in school, he or she will be begging for a job and will be offered 30k for a job.

This is a huge turn off and discouragement for those that want to even go to school. Create jobs for these boys and see then working.

Contrarily to what people think about Yahoo boys or Yahoo Pluz boys, that is an easy way to make money and easy way out. This is a blatant lie and I have to tell you this, they work their bones up to make money. If you think Yahoo Yahoo is easy, try it yourself.

Nonetheless, not having a job is of course not an avenue for crime.
