The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested 140 suspected internet fraudsters, popularly known as “Yahoo Boys”, at two hotels in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

The anti-graft agency’s Head, Media & Publicity Wilson Uwujaren, said the suspects, between 16 and 42 years, were nabbed in separate sting operations at Lakers Lounge Hotel and Bar and De Butlers Hotel in Ikorodu.

Uwujaren said this followed credible intelligence on their alleged involvement in internet-related fraud.

He explained that four of the suspects were released as no incriminating item was found on them.

“Items recovered from the suspects include exotic cars, electronic devices, laptop computers and mobile phones.

“The suspects will be charged to court as soon as the investigations are concluded,” Uwujaren said.
