The operatives of anti-graft agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has busted the capital city of Benue State, Makurdi, rounding up dozens of suspected internet fraudster in the sting operation.

Rare in the course of deploying the war against internet fraudsters in Nigeria, one would notice that in recent times the EFCC operatives are leaving no stone unturned in the fight against the Yahoo-Yahoo menace among Nigerian youths. Recall that the operatives rarely arrest these internet fraudsters in the North, a few years back; this had raised a series of observations and hot conversations among some stakeholders who were concerned about the robber hands with which the internet fraudsters in the North were being toyed. But in recent times, several arrests of these criminals have been made in some Northern states, and the recent is that of Makurdi, Benue State where 14 suspected Yahoo Boys were arrested with evidence that is enough to serve as exhibits against them in the court of law.

According to a press release by the EFCC, names of the suspected internet fraudsters who were rounded up on n Thursday were Solomon Oloche, Innocent Ochola, Aselo Kendra Wisdom, Simon Jeff, Innocent Raphael, Akula Kelvin, Emmanuel Okanche, Francis Chikodirie, Atoo Michael, Ochayi Nelson, Ngutor Paul, Michael Tyobe, Samuel Okanche, and Patience Tseaa were arrested after series of surveillance based on intelligence on their alleged criminal activities.

Speaking further, EFCC stated that among the items recovered from the arrested suspects were a Toyota Camry Car, 14 iPhones, 11 Android phones, 6 Laptop computers, different ATM Cards, a flash drive, MTN Router, Tus bike, and several incriminating documents.

The suspects have made useful statements which the Agency has stated will be used to institute a court case against them as soon as possible.
