EFCC arrests 94 ‘Yahoo boys’ at Osogbo nightclub


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibadan zonal office, on Monday, raided an Osogbo-based nightclub known for hosting parties for suspected internet fraudsters known locally as ‘Yahoo’ boys.

A statement on Monday by the agency’s spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said the raid led to the arrest of 94 suspects and confiscation of 19 cars, laptops, mobile phones, and other items.


Popularly known as Club Secret Underground, the nightclub is located on the Ibadan-Iwo Expressway of the Osun State capital.

The early morning raid, Mr Uwujaren said, was sequel to an intelligence report hinting that the suspected internet fraudsters were organising a night party for Sunday, October 13 during which some of them intended to celebrate their loots.

The spokesman said a discreet operation on the club had earlier been carried out to ascertain the authenticity of the intelligence.

He added that the suspects were being questioned, noting that those indicted would be prosecuted at the end of investigations.
