Operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Benin, Edo State are reportedly raiding all areas in search of internet fraudsters, popularly known as Yahoo Boys.
A Twitter user named King Nomso has revealed the frantic efforts made by security operatives to arrest from internet fraudsters in Benin, South-south part of Nigeria.
This is coming as an internet fraudster reportedly sold a bakery belonging to a white man to another white man for N25 million. According to Nomso, the fraudster was confident enough to take his victim around the bakery in question.
This has prompted members of the Edo State Police Command to engage in the widespread arrest of suspected internet rats.
Nonso announced, “SARS in anger are picking boys around the area. As far as you are breathing, you are a thief”.
He went on to reveal that the police intended to storm the premises of the University of Benin but school authorities denied them entry. The gist has gone viral on Twitter with nobody coming out as at press time to debunk the rumour.
