Suspected ‘Yahoo boys’ protest incessant arrest by EFCC in Osun


Scores of suspected internet fraudsters known as ‘Yahoo boys’ on Tuesday morning stormed Ilesha/Osogbo road, Osun State, to protest alleged incessant arrest by Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).

It was gathered that they went on a rampage by making bonfires on the major road and blocked the Osogbo/Ilesa road.

The protest action rendered motorists using the road to be stranded as no vehicle was allowed to pass.

The protesters alleged that the EFCC operatives in recent time arrested some of their colleagues in a hotel.

The spokesperson of Nigeria Civil Defence Corps, Osun Command, Daniel Adigun confirmed the protest.
