Ogun state governor, Dapo Abiodun, has disclosed the EFCC considers the state as the top on the states where internet fraudsters, ‘Yahoo Yahoo boys’ reside.
He made the disclosure in Abeokuta, the state capital, during the launch of the state joint security outfit, code-named OP-MESA, while declaring war on kidnappers and internet fraudsters that may want to operate in the state.
Speaking, Abiodun said; “we will make Ogun State unhabitable for all criminals. The other day, I was in a meeting in Abuja and in attendance was the Chairman of EFCC, and sadly, he said to me that Ogun State tops the list on the ‘Yahoo Yahoo Boys’.
“In my response, I said I am not surprised because Ogun State is the education capital of this country and you will find such around educational institutions and he agreed with me.
“We have decided that we will set up our State Commission that will be targeted towards eliminating these sorts of financial crimes.
“Our state commission will collaborate with the Federal commission so that we do not occupy that false place in this area. We like to occupy the first in many areas, but not in fraud and yahoo yahoo”.
