Yahoo Boys’ must be brilliant given the kind of things they do, this comment is coming from no other person than, Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo state. He described internet fraudsters, also known as Yahoo Yahoo boys as children with brilliant minds given their ability to carry out mind-boggling illegal activities.


The governor, who stated this while speaking at an education town hall meeting in the state, however, pointed out that, his administration is ready to tackle the proliferation of Internet fraud in the state.


Obaseki noted that, the government needs to help the fraudsters redirect their thinking and energies into positive ventures.


He posited, “I am concerned. Cyber fraud and Yahoo culture are big issues. I am calling on everyone to please send as much information as you can to my office.”


“On Monday, I am going to see the chairman of EFCC. I am not condemning those involved. There must be a reason why that culture has become so prolific in Edo state. We must find the root cause and address them as we did in the days of trafficking.


“Let’s see how we can correct it because these children must be very brilliant. The kind of things they do, how they hack into other people’s accounts. How do we re-direct that thinking into something more positive?” He queried.
