The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on May 11 arrested 12 suspected internet fraudsters in the Ikoyi area of Lagos.
According to a post on Facebook by the anti-graft agency, its operatives stormed the popular Club 57 on Awolowo Way, Ikoyi, where the suspected “yahoo yahoo boys” were rounded up, following intelligence report.
“While some of the suspects abandoned their exotic cars to avoid arrest, some others put up resistance, thereby turning the environ into a war-like zone of sorts.
“However, a total of 10 cars were recovered from the suspects during raid that lasted about three hours. The suspects will soon be charged to court when investigations are concluded,” the agency said.
