Five alleged cybercriminals, popularly called Yahoo Boys have been convicted by Justice S. M. Shuaibu of the Federal High Court Calabar, in Cross River State.
Via a statement released by the EFCC, the names of the convicts were given as Omengala Emmanuel (a.k.a. Frank Hoffman), Obonga Valentine ( a.k.a Patrick Seaman), Segun Dele Jude (alias Hal Burlington), Promise Nkanga and Omengala Paul (alias Christopher Mason).
The convicts pled guilty to the one-count charge preferred against them separately by the EFCC for their various involvements in cybercrimes.
They have since caused a mini stir online after a photo of them after the conviction surfaced online showing them smiling and posing for the camera.
