In a surprising twist of event, some yahoo boys in Edo State have been caught on camera praying to at a shrine for more blessings.

The ‘Yahoo-Yahoo’ industry, also classified as cyber fraud under Nigerian law, is not a new problem in the country.

The illegal activity, which is largely carried out by young men and women, is an evolution of the 1980s and 1990s’ so-called ‘419’ venture.
