Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, has dismissed insinuations that the agency is only going after internet fraudsters, popularly known as “Yahoo boys’.

Olukoyede assured that he will lead a broad-based and holistic anti-graft war that would not spare anyone linked with any form of economic and financial crimes.

The EFCC boss stated this in a statement by the agency’s spokesperson, Dele Oyewale, on Monday in Abuja.

He gave the assurance in Abuja at an Anti-Corruption Concert organized to create greater awareness and public involvement in the fight against internet crimes.

Olukoyede reaffirmed his commitment to an all-embracing, fully-integrated war against corrupt practices.

“We will not spare anyone. We will not spare the mega thieves. As we are doing the mega, we will also do those at the lower end.

“In the last two months, we have arraigned two former governors. So, it is not true that we are only focused on internet fraudsters.

“Of course, internet fraud is bad enough but our focus is on every form of economic and financial crimes,” he said.

He cautioned youths against indulging in internet-related offences, pointing out that the consequences of being convicted for such crimes are grave.

“Youths need to know that being ex-convicts has career limitations. Ex-convicts can’t run for public offices, the stigma alone is even terrible.

“I urge you to avoid internet crimes by all means. Your future is more important than any immediate gains from such crimes,” he said.
