The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal office, in the early hours of today May 11th, stormed a popular Night club in Ikoyi, Club 57 along Awolowo Way and arrested over 12 suspected yahoo boys during the raid.
The EFCC operatives had stormed the club upon receiving intelligent reports that some suspected yahoo boys are in the club spending frivolously.
While some of the suspects abandoned their exotic cars to avoid arrest, some others put up resistance, thereby turning the environ into a war-like zone of sorts.

Speaking on the renewed clampdown on Internet fraudsters, the Lagos Zonal Head of the Commission, Akanninyene Ezima, said:
“It is to checkmate the activities of these undisciplined elements who want to reap where they did not sow. “By this action, we are also sending a red alert to the so-called yahoo-yahoo boys that engaging in fraudulent deeds, does not pay.”
