The arrest of sixty Yahoo boys has been confirmed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

At the Yahoo Boys' Awards Night, the EFCC made 60 arrests.

According to the commission, these guys were apprehended during an awards ceremony honoring them for their deception.

In a recent post on their official social media handle on the prominent social media platform, Facebook, the commission announced their arrest and provided images from the arrest.

The following is a quote from the commission’s announcement of the arrest:

“EFCC Arrests 60 at Yahoo Boys’ Awards Night Operatives of the EFCC’s Lagos Command detained 60 alleged internet fraudsters at the Conference Hotel in Abeokuta, Ogun State, during an awards ceremony.”
According to the inquiry, the “Peer Youths Awards” was held to celebrate high-level cyber scammers.
Exotic cars, electrical devices, laptop computers, and mobile phones were among the items recovered from the suspects at the time of arrest. The culprits will be charged in court very shortly. Please visit our website at www.efccnigeria.org for more information.”

Nigerians have reacted to this recent event, and the following are some of the responses we’ve received:

David Jimoh is a musician from Nigeria. Very wonderful, but I hope the EFCC storms the event and arrests the organizers and attendees when the APC governors meet to award the most thieving governor soon.

Alayande Babatunde Taofiq – The items recovered are commonplace items that hardworking men also own. Na wahala be that ooo if one is in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s absurd to list these objects as recovered stuff.

Adetunji Oduyemi is a Nigerian actor. You’re doing an excellent job in the wrong way. Good in the sense that you are assisting in the checkmate of the Yahoo boys’ boldness in rubbing their ill-gotten wealth in the faces of industrious Nigerians. Bad in the sense that you behave in an unprofessional manner and occasionally breach the law in order to apprehend your suspects. The problem is that if you continue to operate in this manner, you will only create a vacuum in which these people will be able to earn sympathy in the long term, especially since a lot of business is wrecked and many innocent people who are simply victims of circumstance suffer for no reason. You can’t make up for a mistake by making another one.

Stanley the Evergreen – How come everyone invited to the award ceremony is a suspect? Make una dey do their homework before being arrested. I have my doubts about this rash arrest of young people… Pursue politicians that are stealing our money.

Stop disrespecting the Nigerian Constitution, wise people! The 2017 Anti-Torture Act outlaws the public shaming of suspects. The EFCC should uphold the law rather than breaking it.
Section 2(b) of the Anti-Torture Act of 2017 (xi). “mental or psychological torture” is defined as “cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment intended to affect or confuse the mind or undermine a person’s dignity and morale, such as (xi)inflicting shame by stripping a person naked, parading him in public, shaving his head, or applying marks to his body against his will.”
For a long time, the EFCC, like the Nigerian Police, has been PARADING SUSPECTS IN A PUBLIC PLACE. You even have them carry signs, something the political corruption suspects are never forced to do.
