Osogbo, capital of the state of Osun, is in a frenzy early Tuesday morning as some youths suspected to be internet fraudsters, popularly known as “Yahoo boys” were said to have resisted arrest by alleged operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Offence Commission (EFCC).
It was gathered that the EFCC operatives sneaked into the state capital to arrest suspected fraudsters but were waylaid on their way out after arresting some suspects and seized about 20 exotic cars.
It was gathered that the EFCC had to run into safety to avoid being mobbed by the angry youths, who set a bonfire at Lameco roundabout in the state capital.
As reported by Vanguard, confirming the incident, Osun police Command spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola said they have been trying to control the situation from further escalation.
“We are aware of the situation, we are now trying to appease the protesters and clear the bonfire so that people can go about their lawful duties without fear of harassment”She said
