288 People Convicted for Cyber Crime in Nigeria

The chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde in his speech at the opening ceremony of a three-day conference at the EFCC Academy Karu,Abuja  said that more than 288 persons have been convicted over cyber crimes, four fugitives extradited to the United States and 234 cases are still being prosecuted in courts across the country.

Glad something is being done about these 419ers a.k.a. yahoo boys  because the cyber crime rate in Nigeria is alarmingly high.
