EFCC Arrests ‘Yahoo Boy’ From Luxury Hotel In Delta State After Petition From US Citizen
The Benin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested a suspected internet fraudster from an unnamed luxury hotel owned by him in Delta State after receiving a petition from a citizen of the United States of America.
The petition alleged that the suspect, Precious Ojo, defrauded his American victim.
According to the petition, Ojo, also known as Obago, impersonated one Raymond Bush who works in the US Treasury to defraud his victim.
As a result, the 26 year-old suspect allegedly defrauded the American of the sum of $268,000.00.
Following the petition, the operatives of the Benin Zonal Command of the EFCC arrested Precious Ojo at his hotel in Oghara, Delta State.
“He confessed to building the luxury hotel with his alleged proceeds of crime.
“Other items recovered from him include a Mercedes-Benz car with personalised plate number and mobile phones. The suspect will be arraigned in court soon,” said the Commission.
