EFCC Arrests Two ‘Yahoo’ School Owners, Seven Others

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says its agents from the Benin Zonal Command arrested two Yahoo school owners and seven other suspected Internet fraudsters in Benin City, Edo state, on Tuesday.

The EFCC made this known in a brief statement made available to the press on Thursday, saying that two of the arrested suspects run the Internet Fraud Coaching Center (aka HK) in Benin City.

The Yahoo school’s owners, Osagie Ogiemwonyi and Onukwugho Favor, and seven of their “students” were arrested at their centers after useful intelligence was worked on by the Commission, the EFCC said.

The Commission named Destiny Ohikwugbe, Chata Okoro, Ighodaro Omede, Ehigie Idemudia, Lawrence Daniel, Raymond Ogiemwonyi Oghosa and Henry Philip as the other seven suspects.

The suspects found, according to the Commission, include a Mercedes Benz GLK, Lexus 350, telephones and laptops.
