SCAMMERS IN JAIL: 9 Nigerian Yahoo Boys Land In Ekiti Prison
As many as nine suspected yahoo boys have landed in prison in Ekiti as their trial continues in court.
A Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos State, has given the order to remand nine suspected internet fraudsters in Ado-Ekiti prison, pending the hearing of criminal charges filed against them, Punch Metro reports.
The presiding judge and designated vacation judge for the FHC in the Southwest, Justice Nicholas Oweibo, gave the order on Thursday when the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibadan zonal office, arraigned the suspects before the court.
The suspects are Jejelowo Blessing; Charles Omobolade; Adelanke Abiodun; Jejelowo Olanrewaju and Quadri Ayuba.
Others are Raphael Sunday; Omoniyi Ajayi; Adebola Adeyemi and Adeyeye Rasheed.
They were charged for sundry internet-related offenses, including obtaining money by false pretense, impersonation and being in possession of forged and fraudulent documents to defraud unsuspecting foreigners.
The accused persons were arrested during a raid carried out in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, by operatives of the Commission on July 8.
They pleaded not guilty to their respective charges when read to them.
Consequent upon the not-guilty plea, the EFCC legal team, led by Dr. Ben Ubi, prayed the court for trial dates and an order to remand the suspects in Ado-Ekiti prison.
The court granted the remand prayer, and also fixed two different dates for the hearing of the cases against the suspects.
September 23, 2019, was for the trial of Jejelowo Blessing, Charles Ilesanmi Omobolade and Adelanke Adesola Abiodun’s cases; while Jejelowo Samson Olanrewaju, Quadri Adewale Ayuba, Raphael Sunday, Omoniyi Ifeoluwa Ajayi, Adebola Kazeem Adeyemi, and Adeyeye Rasheed are to start answering to their criminal charges on September 25.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
- Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
