Suspected ’Yahoo Boys’ protest in Osun over incessant arrest

Some suspected internet fraudsters, popularly known as ‘Yahoo Boys’, on Tuesday protested their incessant arrest by the security agencies.


They blocked Osogbo/Ilesa expressway in the State.

They were said to have stormed the Ilesa West Local Government Secretariat, Ilesa and made bonfire on the road, therefore halting the free flow of traffic along the busy road.

The bonfire was made exactly at the entrance of the Ilesa Council office.

The protesters were protesting their recent arrest by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

They alleged that the EFCC officials recently stormed the hotel they lodged in and arrested some of their colleagues.

It was gathered that owing to the road blockage, motorists plying the expressway were said to have been stranded.

Some of the road users, who know the terrain, had made u-turn for other routes.
