The Deputy Commissioner of Police in-charge of the Lagos State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Yaba, DCP Yetunde Longe, has warned that mothers who support their children suspected to be involved in internet fraud would soon be jailed.
DCP Longe said the police would not fold their arms and watch mothers aiding and abetting their children who defraud members of the public as they would be arrested and sent to the prison if found guilty.
Longe who was speaking on a program on Lagos Television (LTV), while reacting to the news making rounds in the media that yet to be identified women have formed an ‘Association of Yahoo Boys Mothers’.
According to her, the ‘Association of Yahoo Boys’ Mothers’ is still a hear-say until police investigation reveals that there is truth in it. If it turns out to be true and proven that they are in any way involved or provided any form of support to the crime, they will be treated as accomplices and co-conspirators and they will be made to face the full wrath of the law “.
She, however, applauded the Lagos Commissioner of Police (CP) Zubairu Muazu, on his continuous and relentless effort in making sure that cybercrime was brought to the lowest level. She also encouraged citizens to partner with police in order to ensure a safer society for all.
