Anti-graft body EFCC said it has arrested 11 suspected internet fraudsters, otherwise known as ‘Yahoo Boys’ in Jere and Maiduguri Local Government Areas of Borno.
EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
The agency gave the names of the suspects arrested as Olatunji Sherif, Bright Felix, Jude Magaji, Jonah Jondi, Ojobaro Abdullahi, Jerry Zizighi and Micah Joseph.
Others are: Mari Ayuba, Ibrahim Abdullahi, Adam Abiodun and Victor Chinonso Okolieaboh.
Mr Uwujaren said they were arrested in a sting operation following credible intelligence on their alleged criminal activities.
“Items recovered at their residence included one Mercedes Benz GLK 350, a Toyota Corolla saloon car, smartphones, MTN 4G Wi-Fi and power banks.
“The suspects will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded,” he said.
