Suspected Yahoo Boys stage protest in Osun (photos)


Suspected internet fraudsters known as ‘Yahoo Yahoo boys’ on Tuesday morning February 9, barricaded the Ilesha/Osogbo road, Osun State over the alleged indiscriminate arrest of some of their colleagues by operatives of the Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).  The protesters claim operatives of the antigraft agency recently went to a hotel in the community and randomly arrested young men suspected to be fraudsters. They went on a rampage by making bonfires on the major road and blocked the Osogbo/Ilesa road, rendering motorists using the road to be stranded as no vehicle was allowed to pass. Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of Osun Command of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Daniel Adigun, said “From reports made available to us, EFCC raided some suspected internet fraudsters in the area last night and the protest, we are told, is organised by some of them.” The post Suspected Yahoo Boys stage protest in Osun (photos) appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
