We’re Punishing Officers Who Work With ‘Yahoo Boys’ – Police Reveal

We’re Punishing Officers Who Work With ‘Yahoo Boys’ – Police Reveal (Updated: 4 months ago)


According to a report by Daily Trust, the Nigeria Police Force says it is aware of some officers who connive with internet fraudsters popularly known as yahoo boys.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, who disclosed this however said those officers were being severely punished.

Hundeyin made this known in a chat with Daily Trust on its Twitter Spaces on Wednesday.

He said, “In every organisation, you would have those officers that would always undermine the efforts of the organisation. I’ve heard about officers working in cahoot with internet fraudsters. These officers are treated worse than the internet fraudsters.

“If a law enforcement officer engages in a crime, he receives more punishment than an ordinary citizen because he is expected to know more.”

The PPRO said anytime such offenders were caught, they were dealt with severely.

“All the time when we get to know about such officers, they are severely dealt with,” he said.

He also urged the public to provide the force with information whenever they hear of such cases.
