Folks on Twitter are questioning how the EFCC exactly figured out that all 89 people arrested in the club were indeed internet fraudsters. Were people having fun randomly arrested, they ask. It’s a little odd that 89 internet fraudsters in Ibadan decided to visit the same club in one night, they say.
Regular law-abiding folks who regularly visit the club also shared that they too, perhaps, would have been arrested were they at the club on that night.
See what people are saying:
Only a fool will believe this.
89 Yahoo boys. Y'all are a joke.

What were they all doing in the club at once? Abi they were hosting Yahoo Boy PTA meeting? Rubbish!!!

Anytime I’m in Ibadan, I always go to this spot to hangout cos it’s very close to my parents house. Had it been I was in IB over the weekend I would have been part of these guys and I’m not a yahoo boy.

You have also killed someone’s business, EFCC this is so wrong

Has the EFCC ever arrested someone for crimes they committed online?
Like have they ever seen suspicious activity over the internet and then traced to the person?
Why is it always raiding nightclubs and fancy cars they do?
