Police arrests two ‘Yahoo boys’ with coffin filled with panties, brassieres in Delta

By Loveth Ojogun 

The Police and vigilante group in Ogwashi-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area, Delta State, have caught two boys with a coffin of female pants and brassieres.

The suspects, who were apprehended in Agidiehe quarters of the community at about 9.30p.m. on Wednesday night, a dependable source told newsmen, were intercepted by the vigilante members, before policemen were invited.

The source said women and youths from the neighbourhood expressed anger over the activities of the boys suspected to be “Yahoo boys” (internet fraudsters).

According to the source, “The crowd would have mobbed the boys if not for the intervention of the police.

“Where did they get the pants and other female items in the coffin? The law should take its course to serve as a deterrent to others.”

Confirming the arrest, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Onome Onowakpoyeya, said the boys were in possession of the coffin for alleged ritual purposes.

Onowakpoyeya said the female pants, brassieres and other items were seen in the coffin when the suspects were forced to open it.

She added that the Command had stepped up investigation into the matter.
