      Suspected Yahoo Boys Arrested In Ilorin Airport; Three internet fraudsters arrested at Ilorin Airport

      Operatives of the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday (Yesterday) , arrested three internet fraud suspects at the Ilorin International Airport, Kwara state

      This is part of the renewed crusade against corruption and illegal movement of cash through Nigeria’s airports.


      They are Olawale Ipadeola, Opeyemi Badmus and Wasiu Babatunde.


      They were arrested on Monday morning, except for Wasiu whose arrest happened on Saturday, August 6, 2022 following actionable intelligence.


      According to a statement by the Media Unit of the Command in Ilorin on Monday, two of the suspects Olawale and Opeyemi, who flew in from Lagos landed at the Ilorin airport around 1156hours to the waiting hands of the eagle-eyed operatives of the EFCC at the airport.

      Preliminary investigations about their activities have shown that the suspects possessed several fraudulent documents on their devices.


      Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to the crime and admitted ownership of different brands of phones and laptops recovered from them at the point of arrest.


      The suspects will be charged to court upon the conclusion of the ongoing investigations.


      What are your thoughts on the increase of internet fraud in Kwara state in the past few years ?

      Firstly, I will say Nigeria government are responsible for 85% of those doing fraud on the internet.Sincerely speaking, if this boys are given jobs to do and they use the knowledge that they use for fraud, they input it into businesses, companies imagine how that business will flourish.
      This is to let us know that this people are high class thinkers,they are seriously using their brains but for the wrong thing.
      And for the remaining 15% involve in this act , should be dealt with serious, cause it is just laziness that is worrying them.
      May God help us all 🙏🙏.
