However, responding on Wednesday, Magu stated the commission raids clubs since that’s where web scammers collect and invest the cash obtained from their victims.

“If it is nightclubs, these are the places the yahoo boys gather and spend the money. There is nothing wrong in raiding the yahoo boys at nightclubs,” he said.


The EFCC employer, who remained in Ibadan to check the brand-new employees of the commission at the state zonal workplace on Wednesday included that “It is not about bar, raiding of bar is delegated the police, we do not have much power, and we will go there when we make certain it is the scammers.


“We are not raiding bar, we are pursuing the yahoo kids and we constantly do that when we have a reliable intelligence.


“What we will do is that we need to work together to restore them into society. These are little kids who are smart, they can be helpful.


“There are a great deal of scammers who have actually made millions, we can discover a method to bring them back so they can be much better residents tomorrow.
