 The Deputy Commissioner in-charge of the Lagos State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Yaba, DCP Yetunde Longe, has disclosed that more internet fraudsters and possibly their mothers will be sent to prison if found guilty after prosecution.

She made the disclosure Wednesday on a morning show programme on Lagos Television (LTV) while reacting to the news making rounds in the media that yet to be identified women have formed an ‘Association of Yahoo Boys’ Mothers’.

According to DCP Longe, “The ‘Association of Yahoo Boys’ Mothers’ is still an hear-say until police investigation reveals that there is truth in it.

“And if it turns out to be true and its proven that they are in any way involved or provided any form of support to the crime, that makes them accomplices and co-conspirators where which they will be made to face the full wrath of the law.”

She applauded the Lagos Commissioner of Police, CP Zubairu Muazu, “on his continuous and relentless effort in making sure that cybercrime becomes a thing of the past in Lagos.”

The DCP encouraged citizens to partner with police in order to ensure a safer society for all. She released some complaint phone numbers in case people notice any unusual activity around them. They are:

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations) – 07073666669

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Admin) – 08023008040

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rapid Response Squad) – 08037218946

Lagos Police Public Relations Officer – 07063116303

Lagos Control Room – 767/112
