Mothers of internet scammers in Lagos have formed an association, acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has revealed.
According to TheNation, Magu stated this at the commission’s Lagos Office at the ongoing EFCC stakeholders conference on crusade against cybercrime fraudsters.
Magu, who addressed journalists at the Lagos office of the commission in Ikoyi said such parents always justify their children’s activities with the arguments that they were supporting their families in the place of irresponsible, runaway or dead fathers.
According to the anti-graft agency, the Lagos Office had made 300 cybercrime-related arrests since January and had secured 200 convictions.
