Scammers Arrested for K!lling Another Yahoo Boy Who Earned More Money Than Them.
Police in Osun State have arrested two accused Yahoo Boys, Wahab Hammed, 28, and Adegoke Ayobami, 31, for alleged conspiracy, armed robbery, and the death of his companion.
The two were arrested after a case of missing person was reported at the B Division Modakeke on August 7, 2022, according to the spokesman of the Osun State Police Command, Yemisi Opalola, during a suspect parade at the Police headquarters Osogbo on Tuesday.
In his own words, Yemisi Opalola said “Immediately, preliminary investigation was carried out and one Wahab Hammed friend of the missing person, one Oguntade Wasiu now deceased, was arrested in connection with the case.”
Wahad, one of the suspects upon interrogation said; “I am a tailor by profession and I have a shop but I also operate motorcycle for additional income. I am from Modakeke in Adesiyan compound. I also engaged in Internet fraud but I have never made any money.
Wasiu was Ayobami’s buddy. He was involved in Internet fraud, and I knew him through Ayobami. He was into scamming before we met more than a year ago. Wasiu was slain by myself and Ayobami because he was always bragging about his accomplishments, how much money he was making through online fraud, and how he flaunted his triumphs such as building a store for his wife, purchasing gold, and so on. All of this broke my heart and made me envious of him. And I’ve always wanted to gather his money so that I could use it to meet my own needs.
On August 8, 2022, we murdered him. We enticed him to a new location since he told me he wanted to acquire some land. Ayobami and I drove him to a location in Modakeke. On our trip back after inspecting the land, I was in front, Wasiu followed, and Ayobami was at the back. Ayobami grabbed his jugular and slashed him on the head with a cutlass while yelling.
“We never had a plan to kill him but to collect money from him, but Ayobami eventually killed him. I went to report myself at the police station days later.”
