Yahoo boy arrested over attempt to kill mother for money ritual


An internet fraudster guy, better known as Yahoo boy, Emma Eregarnoma, has been arrested for attempting to use his mother, Mrs Oke Eregarnoma, for money ritual in Delta State.

The incident occurred on Tuesday in Okuokoko community near Warri.

 According to the victim on her hospital bed, she honoured Emma’s invitation to his residence at Caroline Street in Okuokoko having promised her a surprise package.

On arrival her host was in happy mood blaring music and boasting he “must drive GLK this week.”

To her surprise, Emma pounced on her, reaching out for her eyes and trying to plug it. She said he struggled to fight him off as the ear-splitting volume of the music in the apartment did not make her cry for help to attract neighbours.

She added that she succeeded in extricating herself from him and stormed of the house upon which she was rushed to the hospital by neighbours.

The acting Police Public Relations Officer, Delta State, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident, adding that the suspect was in custody.
