EFCC engages Nigerian in hilarious ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ conversation

EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has engaged a Nigerian in a hilarious conversation on Twitter about internet fraud known locally as ‘Yahoo Yahoo’.

The anti-graft agency has been on its toes lately in the clampdown on internet fraudsters.


Several high profile cases have been recorded in the agency’s latest campaign, one of which was the arrest of pop musician, Naira Marley, for alleged involvement in internet fraud.

However, in a conversation held on Twitter with a Nigerian known as P. Flow, the agency re-emphasised its zero-tolerance for ‘Yahoo Yahoo’.

P. Flow wrote the agency late Saturday saying that he was considering engaging in internet fraud and that he wanted to know if there was a way he could strike a deal with the agency to avoid arrest.

“@officialEFCC I want to start yahoo yahoo, how are we going to be sharing my earnings so you don’t arrest me?” he asked.

The EFCC replied saying P. Flow could schedule a meeting with them to discuss terms and conditions.

“You can schedule a meeting with us, to be held in any of our offices, to discuss terms and conditions. Cheers,” the agency wrote.
