Where Are The Money Recovered From Yahoo Boys? EFCC Answered The Question Online

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission has disclosed that money and items recovered from corrupt politicians and internet fraudsters are deposited in a special account called 'Consolidated Revenue Funds Account'. The money is being kept in the account till the court makes a final judgment on the case.

The Commission made this known on its Twitter handle when someone asked for the whereabouts of the money recovered from internet fraudsters popularly called Yahoo Boys.

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission is a special agency created by the National Assembly in 2003 to fight against corruption and mismanagement of public funds by public officials.

The Anti-graft agency is also responsible for prosecuting internet fraudsters and other private cases. Many Nigerians have argued that the Commission has neglected its primary responsibility which is the prosecution of corrupt public officials, they now focus on Yahoo Boys.
