  37. Pls investigation should be carry out first before said anything about them ,is the bes way it should be okay before bring them out to people.

  38. I appreciate the fact that there names are published. It will definitely sound a loud warning to others who in anywhere are involved or plan to get on same train with them. Enough of this fraud acts

  39. Comment*
    Every time you will hear nigeria is corrupt while they are the one worsening it day by day and they are waiting for corruption to be eradicated in Nigeria when they can’t resist the temptation and greediness. may God help us.

  40. Das good for them, what efcc has done to them we be inform of lession to other people’s who also want to engage them self in yahoo

  41. Fraudsters everywhere. Should it be blamed on the economy or the fact that youths are lazy and want fast track to riches?

  42. This is nonsense… Let them provide job for them nah…or are they not better than all those criminals in d govt…who arrest them

  43. It is a serious issue if Youths who are vibrant keep involving themselves in obtaining money by false pretence and money laundering and forgetting that nemesis will catch up with them one day.

  44. Yahoo boys are not duping people alone but the give a very high traumatic that makes some people to be hopeless and think of commiting suicide.

  45. I hope they don’t catch innocent guys all in the name of Yahoo boys sha. They’re doing a great job if its correct.

  46. This yahoo boys issue is getting out of hand EFCC pls don’t mercy for them they must go behind box

  47. Proper investigation should be carry out, bailing for yahoo boys 2,000,000 naira God help us, others yahoo guys should be careful.
    Amount for bail in efcc custody
    Yahoo fraud … 2,000,000

    Political fraud…. silently

  48. people of this nature should not granted bail,they’ve ruined lifes.what they deserve is life sentence

  49. EFCC must root all of them out, they will all be exposed and pay for their evil deeds, they are just busy destroying the reputation of good Nigerians, God will surely hold them down

  50. thank God for the EFCC. imagine the number of innocent nigerians these people would have defrauded if they were not arrested

  51. This is to show that whatever you sow, that’s what you’ll reap. They’re reaping what they’ve down.

  52. More investigation should be carried out before persecution of youths and because a lad is young and rich doesn’t necessarily means they are into fraudulent activities

  53. Proper investigation should be made before passing judgment if they are wrong then they should be passed judgment

  54. I hope they are actually yahoo boys, they should better focus on the original yahoo boys and leave these young men, Efcc and misplaced priorities

  55. Kudos to EFCC for a job well done but please don’t grant them bail anyhow. Let them be severely punished

  56. The second guy’s face looks familiar… They should do proper investigation first, the funny thing is the more u arrest them… It’s the more our youths indulge in the act

  57. Good for them. I love the courts bail demand even more. Wish more guys like them will be caught and brought to book.

  58. I like that because that’s exactly what they are supposed to be doing instead of following politicians up and down

  59. Lol ha Nigeria yahoo boy that I don’t even know what they have made from their yahoo business to pay 2million for bail while a someone already found guilty for stealing hundreds of millions of Maura was told to pay only 120 thousand. God is watching

  60. EFCC seems to be doing a good job when it comes to ordinary citizens. Why are they not going after the fraudsters we have in government.

  61. That is a good development for Ibadan. These Yahoo boys is much now. Though, they became much when Buhari came into power.

  62. Full investigations should be carried out and if found guilty should be made to face the full wrath of the law.

  63. Good job by the efcc, they should interrogate them well so that they will expose the hideouts of their colleagues

  64. Everyday for the theif one day for the owner, the only way is to make sure justice should take its course

  65. Youths of nowadays are not totally interested in gradual wealth, just to be rich overnight. Justice should take it’s place. Our leaders should make economy better for people’s survival.

  66. These Yahoo boys activities are becoming too much nowadays and the authorities shouldn’t spare them at all, they should be prosecuted when found guilty.

  67. If not for yahoo yahoo ,where will Nigeria be today am sure we won’t be able to walk on the street any more kidnapping and robbery would have been the order of the day.. Anyways efcc weldone

  68. Kudos to EFCC, proper investigation should be carried out and the case should not be unnecessarily prolonged

  69. They should have made them faced the consequences of their deeds squarely even before the grant of their bail. The fraudsters want to reap where they’ve not sown

  70. Most of our youths are now getting involved in this yahoo yahoo act they don’t want to be patients looking for all means to get rich,

  71. Most of our youths are now getting involved in this yahoo yahoo act they don’t want to be patients looking for all means to get rich

  72. Obtaining money from people through false pretence. You must dance to the rhythm of the music you have played for yourself.

  73. This case should be treated well and if they’re found guilty, they should get the punishment due them.

  74. In as much as we condemn crime, the government should try and establish organizations that will engage our youths meaningfully.
    It will reduce crime

  75. Wow…really so what did they wwnt them to do…is yahoo boys they are focusing on…as if there are no any other thing to focus on

  76. They should be able punishment only if they are found guilty of the crime. So proper investigation should be carried out.. It’s very important

  77. The 10 count charge against this guys is too much, they should carry out a thorough investigation about the matter

  78. These yahoo boys games is over, can’t they read the picture very clear. everything has a beginning and ending. so yahoo has gone, they should forget about it.

  79. Please they should investigate very well before throwing judgement, besides when there is no job in the country what do you expect youth to do after spending four to five years in school come out no job.

  80. Why is EFCC always on yahoo boys, with all this problem everywhere they are arresting young guys who are out to help theirself since the government careless about them. this issue should be properly investigated by judging them.

  81. Almost our youths of nowadays are now getting involved in this yahoo yahoo act they don’t want to be patients looking for all means to get rich, if they are guilty they should be prosecuted

  82. These yahoo guys are getting more criminal by the day, please investigation should b carried out properly so that the innocent once will not get hurt

  83. This news made my day. They should arrest more of them. Their own is too much. That’s how one was trying to dupe me some days ago

  84. These yahoo guys are getting more criminal by the day please proper investigation should be carried out to avoid innocent ones from getting hurt

  85. Pleading not guilty is a lie. These internet fraudsters are everywhere. I wish they were not granted bail. All of them shall be caught one after the other.

  86. Nice job but they should be proper investigation because this is common nowadays that’s why Buhari call them lazy Nigeria youth.

  87. Good work and Kudos to EFCC, but good and proper investigation should be made before judgement so as to ensure not to send innocent people to jail

  88. Let’s hope they are not only arraigned but brought to justice for their evil deeds
    I just hope they get the punishment they deserve. Living at the expense of others

  89. Thorough investigation should still be done, abd the government should do something concerning this unemployment situation.

  90. The situation of the country is pushing most guys to cyber crime, may God take control, I don’t really blame them anyway

  91. They should be called yahoo men not yahoo boys. EFCC should carry out conclusive investigations before showing their faces all over the net.

  92. All this yahoo ehnnnn, wit all EFCC efforts Ally this this yahoo are still operating let them face the consequences..

  93. Due diligence must be adhered to before conviction cos as I write a guy and his minor younger are at Agodi for preprosterous allegation of buglary…

  94. Wait is yahoo now a business. Industries should also upgrade themselves security wise to avoid all these minance. However, the yahoo guys that have been arrested for years, what had they governemtn done to help them get out of such act?

  95. Fraud should be discouraged by really discouraging youths through these serious penalties
    A million for bail sounds fair
    But so too should corrupt politicians be dealt with

  96. Granting bail is a bad idea..that cannot stop them from going back to Yahoo boy job,stealing from innocent people
    They should be imprisoned

  97. What a life of money laundering and of pretence. Well proper investigation should be carried out so that things can fall in the right place.

  98. It’s good to catch all these fraudsters. But please at the same time, EFCC should also try and catch all these our leaders looting our money ooo..

  99. Kudos to the Efcc, they have buckled up in doing their jobs. More investigations should be carried out to expose more yahoo boys.

  100. I can’t greet you that you are doing your job with this reason, there is no work in Nigeria for 70% graduate to do, now tell me what did you expect guys to be eating, and also you the one that doesn’t let us no who serious

  101. There are suspects as said so I think there should be good investigation so innocent people won’t be hurt & I also think yahoo boys are really bad nowadays so they should be proper investigation

  102. Efcc, keep the good work but how bout those stealing in high places… Hope we can see them treated as such.
