EFCC Set To Rehabilitate Yahoo-Yahoo Boys

EFCC Set To Rehabilitate Yahoo-Yahoo Boys
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission's Acting Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, says the agency aims to rehabilitate youth involved in Internet fraud, popularly known as Yahoo Yahoo kids.

Magu said this at the Third All Administrators National Conference of the Chartered Institute of Administration in Lagos on Thursday, while delivering a paper entitled' Strategic change management and innovation to curb corruption in Nigeria.'

According to him, in the future, Internet fraudsters might be helpful to the agency.


While talking about collaboration between the Nigerian graft agency and other nations, Magu said the EFCC had secured collaboration with member states of ECOWAS to help prosecute cross-border crimes.

He said, "If you're bringing cash from Nigeria and fleeing to Ghana, we're just going to call the men in Ghana and say,' arrange this man and keep him for me.

"The boys of Yahoo-Yahoo like to do this. But we plan to rehabilitate them because they can be useful to us in the future." Magu said that between January and September the graft agency had been able to secure 614 convictions.
