Father & Son Arrested By EFCC over Yahoo Yahoo (Internet Fraud)

The Lagos Zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), has arrested a young Nigerian man and his father over an alleged cybercrime.

The suspect identified as Malik Giles Bakare and his father, Isa Bola Bakare, are currently been investigated in an alleged case of conspiracy, computer-related fraud, obtaining by false pretense, and retention of proceeds of unlawful activities.


He was arrested and handed over to the Commission by officers of the Nigeria Police, Force CID, Alagbon, Lagos on May 31, 2021.

During the course of the investigation, his father, Isa Bola Bakare, appeared at the Commission claiming ownership of a Range Rover car estimated at about N46 Million, which was recovered from his son. 

However, the father failed to provide a satisfactory account of how he was able to procure the vehicle so he was arrested too.

In a statement on Wednesday, June 9, EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said Malik acted as a middleman between fraudsters.

The statement explains:
“He connects internet fraudsters around the globe with pickers, and receives some percentage on every successful transaction.”

Items seized from the suspects include the vehicle, an iPhone 12 Pro Max, an iPhone 8 and “some incriminating items”.
