The Cross River State Police Command on Friday arrested three Internet fraudsters, also known as

This was just as another group of five
yahoo – boys were also arrested on the streets of Calabar.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Hafiz Inuwa , who disclosed this in Calabar during the parade of the suspects, gave the names of the yahoo boys that were arrested with charms as 22 – year – old Chukwuemeka Ahunanya ; Francis Ugochukwu, 25; and Emmanuel Chukwuma, 25.
