Acting Chairman EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, has reacted to the arrest of popular Instagram celebrity, Ramon Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi.
In an interview with TVC on Friday, Mr Magu said the commission is yet to be involved in the case.
“We are yet to be involved in the case of Hushpuppi, but if they happen to give us this thing (details) we would assist.”
The antigraft agency boss in the interview denied the allegation that the agency is mostly interested in the arrest and prosecution of internet fraudsters. He said the Commission also rehabilitates the suspects arrested for internet fraud.
“We are not all about arresting, prosecuting and chasing of internet fraudsters, and taking away the proceeds of their crime, but we are also trying to see wether we can rehabilitate them. Because most of this boys are either undergraduate or graduate from higher institutions, so they can be better people to our country.
The menace of Yahoo boys is also a course of concern, we are collaborating with other law enforcement agencies.
Yahoo boys have an association with their mothers who do not feel what their children are doing is a crime actually. It is called the “Yahoo Yahoo Mothers Association, a suitation where the mother would go abroad and the child would stay there and help them syphon funds from credit card fraud.
So we are doing everything possible to arrest the situation” he said
