Popular Lagos Yahoo Boy Arrested After Scamming A Singapore Woman With A Dog




A suspected Internet fraudster, Akpaikpe Etim, has been arraigned by EFCC, before Justice J.E. Oyefeso of the Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos on an eight-count charge bordering on possession of fraudulent documents and obtaining money by false pretence. .

The 30year old who operates as Yahoo boy in Lekki, Lagos, obtained the sum of $4,000 from a victim in Singapore, after posting a dog for sale on an online platform. .

Investigation also revealed that the suspect, who does not have a stable job, had several inflows of money into his account, which he could not satisfactorily account for.
The suspect pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him.

In view of his pleas, the prosecution counsel, Banjo James, asked for a trial date and prayed the court to remand the suspect in prison custody. In his response, counsel to the defence, O.V. Adoro, urged the court to grant his client bail.

However, the prosecution counsel opposed the bail application. Consequently, Justice Oyefeso ordered the suspect to be remanded in Kirikiri Prisons and adjourned the case to February 18, 2018 for hearing of bail application.
