Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), today, Friday, raided a popular nightclub 57 in Ikoyi area of Lagos and arrested no fewer than 12 suspected internet fraudsters known as yahoo yahoo boys.
The Lagos division of the EFCC said in a statement, today, Friday, that the suspected fraudsters were arrested at the popular club, located at number 57 Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, and is a popular celebrity hangout.
The anti-corruption agency said: “EFCC operatives stormed the popular Club 57 on Awolowo Way, 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 environment into a war-like zone of sorts.
“However, a total 10 cars were recovered from the suspects during the raid that lasted about three hours.
“The suspects will soon be charged to court when investigations are concluded.” [myad]
