When asked where they were heading, the stranded boys, who were carrying bags containing their clothes and personal stuff, replied: “We wan come hustle.”
Speaking on the type of hustle they want, they said; “Yahoo hustle…” seemingly surprised by their response, to see if they truly wish to study internet fraud.
“Yes…but not Yahoo +,” they responded, reiterating their previous allegation.
Yahoo plus is a type of cybercrime in which criminals use traditional charms and supernatural powers to defraud their victims.
When asked why they took to the streets in search of where to learn cybercrime, they said: “As they don come pursue us, na him we com dey find where we go stay.
“Na the person we dey stay with pursue us. We no dey get rest of mind for house, any small thing wey we do, they will start cursing us. They eventually chased us away. So, we come dey find where we go do Yahoo.”
