Three Abuja based internet fraudsters, infamously dubbed Yahoo Yahoo boys, have landed into the net of operatives of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) who mounted surveillance at their No 24, 1st Avenue, Fort Royal Estate residence, Airport road, Abuja.

The suspects are scammers; Marvin Nwankwo, Prince Ojenike and Jude Olatekobowale were said to have created Facebook accounts with the following names: Rodney David; David Rodgers and Carlos David, respectively.

An EFCC statement disclosed that anti-graft agency arrested the trio following intelligence report that the suspects turned the said residence into their office, using laptops, phone and other gadgets to defraud unsuspecting members of the public including foreigners, of their hard earned money and other valuables.

The EFCC intelligence further revealed that the suspects aged between 22 to 30 years, used the proceeds of their crimes to acquire different properties such as cars which include a GLK Mercedes Benz SUV, a Toyota Corolla, amongst others.

The operatives swung into action and mounted surveillance on the suspects’ residence, monitoring the activities of the suspects.

According to EFCC, after thorough investigations, the suspects were arrested and items, which included several laptops of different makes, very expensive mobile phones, modems, many Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards, amongst others were recovered.

The agency said the suspects will soon be charged to court.
