“Items recovered from the suspect at the point of arrest include a Lexus Car with registration number RBC 126 BJ worth N4million, Laptop, iPhone 11 ProMax and Samsung S9 Plus.

“In the course of investigation, Adetuberu revealed that he ventured into ‘Yahoo Yahoo Business’ in 2016 and had among other things built a house and sponsored himself in school with the proceeds of the illegal activities.

“The suspects are Muhammed Soliu from Woru, Ilorin East local government area, Kwara state and Olayiwola Tunde Saheed, an aluminium fabricator from Olorunda, Osogbo local government area of Osun state.

Upon interrogation, Muhammed, 25, confessed that he joined ‘Yahoo-Yahoo Business’ in 2020 and specialised in dating/love scam.
