Lagos Police Killed Yahoo Boy:
Suspected Internet Fraudster
Tortured To Death In Police
This is the story of an easy

dealer identified as Kazeem
Oyolola who was said to have
been tortured to death during
an investigation by the police
after his arrest at a beer

Read an eyewitness account
of the story:

“I was sitting in front of my
shop when the police van
passed. They had initially
come during the sanitation to
pursue some traders away,
but when they got here, we
were already through with the

“Kazeem and his two friends
were relaxing in the next
shop. The policemen just
asked them to come inside
the van, and took them away.
We did not know what they
were arrested for. In the
afternoon when we went to
the station, we were not
allowed to enter.

“At evening time, when I came
back to check, I heard he had
been taken to a nearby
hospital, and that his
condition was critical. By the
next morning, we heard that
Kazeem had died, while his
two friends who received
similar wounds had been
released by the police to go
and take care of themselves.
The youth in the area staged
a protest against the incident.”

A tenant at the deceased’s
residence said:

When I got to the hospital, his
parents had arrived to look
after him. His hands and legs
were swollen. His mouth was
wide open and he could not
talk. You could see several
bleeding spots all over his
body. I do not know what
information the police
received, but I can tell you
that Kazeem is an easygoing
man in this area. He is a
trader who deals in
Aluminium products, and he
has a younger brother who
stayed with him. He should
not have died in this cruel

It was learnt that the police
had arrested Oyolola and his
friends as suspected Internet
fraudsters, otherwise known
as Yahoo boys.

They were tortured in a bid to
get them to confess to the
crime but Oyinlola sustained
life threatening injuries that
eventually led to his death.
So sad! May God console his
grieving parents.
