A man suspected of being involved in internet fraud, often referred to as a “Yahoo boy,” has issued a warning to fellow fraudsters after his release from EFCC custody. The young man was detained by agents from the anti-graft agency for a period.
Upon regaining his freedom, he took to video to advise others who might still be engaged in fraudulent activities to immediately cease their actions before the agency apprehends them. In a video that has since gone viral online, he stood in front of the EFCC office and had this to say:
“If you know that you are involved in fraudulent activities, please stop. If you identify as a fraudster, it’s time to put an end to it. Can you see where I am? This is EFCC custody. They just released me not too long ago, and I know firsthand what I experienced here.”

According to her Facebook post, the boy’s mother left him and his siblings in the care of their father in Osogbo, Osun state. She discovered the boy sleeping in a church on their street after he had been beaten with a cutlass by his father, leading him to run away from home.
She made a plea on Facebook, requesting information on any organization that could provide proper care for the boy and his siblings. The urgency of the situation was stressed, and the location of the incident was shared in the hopes of finding help for the young boy and his siblings.
