Stop collecting money from ‘Yahoo Boys’ – Pastor Ibiyeomie tells police

Pastor David Ibiyeomie, the Founder and Senior Pastor of Salvation Ministries has charged the Nigerian Police Force to stop collecting money from internet fraudsters, locally known as ‘yahoo boys’.

The cleric condemned policemen who collect money from internet fraudsters, and admonished the military to arrest them instead. This he said in a video of his sermon shared on his verified Instagram page on Friday.

Ibiyeomie said “Internet fraud must stop in Nigeria. Police, all those ‘yahoo boys’, jail them arrest them. If you take bribes from ‘yahoo boy’, you policeman, that money will kill you. Do you know why?

“They stole from somebody who died and you collected the money. Then you and your family will die with it. Police, stop taking that kind of money but arrest them and jail them. It is blood money.”

He condemned the act of internet fraud noting that some victims of fraudsters have died due to the amount of money they lost to scam.

“It is a demonic satanic way of getting money. What kind of nonsense money is that? You are a thief. No matter how you colourise it, you’re a thief. You love stealing. Is it your money?” he said.

The cleric warned those who give chieftaincy titles to internet fraudsters, stating that fraudsters should be treated as armed robbers, not royalty.

He said, “All people doing ‘yahoo’, stop giving them chieftaincy title. They are thieves. Why will you give a ‘yahoo’ person chieftaincy title? He’s a thief. Deal with them as armed robbers.”
