My aim was to determine how this subculture is organised among students in tertiary institutions.
For this I spoke to a number of these “yahoo-boys”.
Many of these fraudsters – dubbed “yahoo-boys” – have become filthy rich. In April 2012, Olasaidi Dare, an undergraduate of the Olabisi Onabanjo University in Ago-Iwoye, was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for an attempt to obtain money under false pretences in a cyber-café.
On June 5 2012, a Federal High Court in Kaduna State sentenced Imonina Kingsley, of the University of Ilorin, to 20 years’ imprisonment.
But if it is in Nigeria, I look for people who live in places like Port Harcourt, Abuja [luxury suburbs].This is because the fraudster would have used a foreign name and would not have a recognised identity card in that name.
