EFCC to rehabilitate Yahoo Boys


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), said of its resolve to set up programmes for rehabilitation of suspects arrested in connection with internet frauds better known as Yahoo Yahoo.

The acting chairman of the anti-graft agency, Ibrahim Magu, stated this while expressing concern about the surge in the activities of the fraudsters who were mostly undergraduates.

Magu explained that rehabilitating the suspects became imperative given that most of them are young and in higher institutions.

According to him:  “We also have to see how we can rehabilitate, because I realised that most of them, are very young boys in the university; they are students.

“Now, if we arrest all of them and jail them, it is a very sad story. I think we should also adopt a rehabilitation situation.”
