Two Persons have been feared dead while some other persons have been left injured during a clash of Police officers and some middle-aged men, suspected to be internet fraudsters, popularly called ‘Yahoo Boys.’
It was made known that the suspected Yahoo Boys were on the run and driving recklessly in a deliberate attempt to evade being arrested by the operatives of the Edo state Police command.
The Yahoo Boys were said to have ran on high speed in their car but unfortunately knocked down a motorcyclist in the Ekpoma area of the state.
The motorcyclist and one of the Yahoo Boys onboard their car are currently struggling for their lives as they were badly injured.
As at the time of filing this report, efforts to confirm the report from the state’s Police command proved abortive although reports say that the Yahoo Boys had been known for their extravagant lifestyle in the area.
