As per report culled from a reliable source..The Benin Zonal Office of the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said it has secured conviction of 22 persons involved in yahoo yahoo (Internet fraud) within its operational base in the last one year.
It said millions of naira were recovered from the Internet fraudsters, who wanted to reap where they did not sow.
Head of the Benin Zone Mr. Mailafia Yakubu, who addressed reporters after a road walk to mark this year’s World Anti-Corruption Day, said other fraudsters would soon be convicted.
He said the commission was working out modalities to curb vote-buying in the coming general election.
Yakubu said the road walk was to stress the need for Nigerians to continue to draw attention to the ills of corruption and why they should collaborate in combating the menace.
He said: “Corruption and its twin evil, economic and financial crimes have ravaged our nation.
“It is the bane of our development. It is the reason our power supply is epileptic. It is the reason our country is still touted as a potentially great nation even after many years of sovereign statehood.”
