A yahoo boy was reported to the Kaduna Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after a complaint by his father who levelled accusations of conspiracy and theft against his son on Thursday.
The father (name withheld) in April 2017 became a whistleblower after his son (then a secondary school student) intimated him that he had bought a house and a shop valued over N2 million.
The father was very surprised and questioned how his son came into the possession of such a huge amount of money. He decided to make a formal complaint to the anti-graft agency when his son could not provide satisfactory answers.
His son, Adamu, said he got the money through his phone line which after purchase he began receiving alerts running into millions of Naira.
The EFCC thereafter invited all the parties involved with statements taken from the accused person and two other accomplices he mentioned during the course of interrogation.
In the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Adamu withdrew monies in bits from a First Bank account number 3033389599 owned by one Porong Daniel Nash (a farmer in Plateau State); and credited same to different accounts.
Consequently, all accused persons where arrested and recoveries were made to the tune of N939,000 which was eventually remitted to the rightful owner by the EFCC.
