EFCC arrests 140 ‘yahoo boys’ in Ikorodu

News
Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested 140 suspected internet fraudsters, also known as yahoo boys, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

The EFCC Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

He explained that the suspects were nabbed in separate sting operations at popular hotels in Ikorodu, following credible intelligence on their involvement in internet-related fraud.

Uwujaren, however, said that four of the suspects were released after the EFCC discovered that no incriminating item was in their possession.

He listed the items recovered from other suspects to include exotic cars, electronic devices, laptops, and mobile phones, adding that they would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.
