If the statements credited to the Deputy Commissioner of Police, DC, State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba, Lagos, Mrs. Yetunde Longe, is anything to go by, prison facilities awaits internet fraudsters and their mothers, who allegedly are forming a pressure group tagged ‘Association of Yahoo Boys Mothers’, now trending in the social media.
DC Longe, was said to have vowed to take them to prison if found guilty after prosecution.
She was quoted to have disclosed this on Wednesday during a morning show programme on Lagos Television, while reacting to the news making rounds in the media that yet-to-be-identified women have formed “Association of Yahoo Boys’ Mothers.”
According to the report, the no-nonsense, calm headed crack detective Police Chief, said “for now, the “Association of Yahoo Boys’ Mothers” is still a hear-say until police investigation reveals that there is truth in it.
She said: “And if it turns out to be true and it’s proven that they are in any way involved or provided any form of support to the crime, that makes them accomplices and co-conspirators, which they will be made to face the full wrath of the law.”
DC Longe who applauded the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, on his continuous and relentless effort in making sure cybercrime become a thing of the past in Lagos, also encouraged citizens to partner the police in order to ensure a safer society for all.
She was said to have enjoined citizens to use provided complaint phone numbers in case anyone notices any unusual activity around them.
