Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), have apprehended some suspected internet fraudsters famously called ‘Yahoo Boys.

Naija News reports that the EFCC arrested the eight suspects at the Elebu-Oja area of Ibadan, Oyo State.

The agency, in a statement on Saturday, said the suspects were rounded up and arrested on February 8, 2019, following action on a series of intelligence reports.

“They are alleged to be involved in fraudulent activities ranging from love scam and other forms of internet fraud, through which they obtain money from unsuspecting victims.

“Three different models of exotic cars, laptop computers, telephones, international passports and several incriminating documents were recovered from them.

“They will soon be charged to court,” the statement said.

In a similar development, the EFCC has recently declared war on a  Popular university in Nigeria.
