EFCC to landlords: Rent house to ‘yahoo boys,’ risk 15-year jail term
The Economic Financial Commission Commission (EFCC) has issued a stern warning that landlords may risk 15 years in jail for renting houses out to “Yahoo boys.”
The Commission made this known ahead of its next edition of its public conversation series tagged, “ #EFCCConnect,” which has been slated to be held by 6pm on Twitter Space on Wednesday, June 29th 2022.
The commission’s Deputy Director, Legal and Prosecution, Sylvanus Tahir and Assistant Director, Legal and Prosecution, Cosmos Ugwu will be speaking on the topic, “Give your house to Yahoo boys, spend 15 years in jail” at the forum.
Recall that the EFCC had repeatedly warned house owners and commercial real estate agents against making properties available to cyber criminals and fraudsters.
The EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, earlier met with hotel owners in Ilorin, the Kwara capital to sensitize the hospitality business community on how to work with the Commission to tame the tide of cyber crimes.
