EFCC Arrests Operators, Trainees (teachers) of Yahoo yahoo Academy in Akwa Ibom

Operatives of the EFCC, Uyo Zonal Office in a joint operation with some of the Commission’s operatives from Abuja, in the early hours of Thursday, November 28, 2019, stormed a building described as ‘YAHOO ACADEMY’, allegedly used solely for the training of youngsters in various aspects of cyber criminality.

During the raid on Essien Essien Street, Ikot Ibiok village in Eket Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, 23 suspects including oprrators and trainees were arrested. The suspects were between the ages of 19 and 35.

They have confessed that they were undergoing training in various aspects of cyber criminality such as Love Scam, Online Trading Scam, Theft Identity etc.

Very sad news. I just hope govt. at all levels wake up to their responsibilities.

I will beg EFCC not to prosecute these youths but to put them in a rehabilitation centre for at least six (6) or seven (7) years. Their parents should be compelled to pay 80% of their needs while govt. covers 20%.

Anyone that can’t afford to pay should spend 10years in the rehabilitation centre and should be enrolled to the military after graduation.
