The agency said the action of the hoteliers amounts to deliberate sabotage and obstruction of law enforcement officers and is punishable by Section 38 (2) (b) of the EFCC Act.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has accused hotel owners of providing an enabling environment for internet fraudsters across the country.

The commission said in a statement Tuesday that the action of the hoteliers amounts to deliberate sabotage and obstruction of law enforcement officers and is punishable by Section 38 (2) (b) of the EFCC Act.

“The commission has observed a worrying pattern of cold complicity by hospitality entrepreneurs who appear to be hands-in-gloves with suspected fraudsters by housing them over long spells and making internet facilities available to them.

“While the argument is being made in certain quarters that hoteliers as business people have no means of determining who a fraudster is before allowing them to lodge in their facilities, that position runs counter to the law.

“Section 3 of the Advance Fee Fraud And Other Related Offences Act, 2006 provides for a prison term of between five and 15 years without option of fine for any person who permits his premises to be used for any offence under the Act.”

The anti-graft agency’s statement came a day after it broke into guests’ rooms at MITROS Hotel and two other lodges in Abeokuta, Ogun State, and arrested 56 persons whom they accused of being internet fraudsters.

Our reporter who visited Mitros Hotel had observed broken doors, shattered plates, and damaged furniture on the premises.

In its statement on Tuesday, the EFCC accused hotel owners and managers of not only allowing their facilities to be used by fraudsters but also deliberately shielding them from arrest by frustrating law enforcement on such premises. The commission said it would no longer tolerate such situations.

“If the hoteliers are not enablers of the alleged crimes, as some have demonstrated by offering information to the Commission, they are under obligation to cooperate with law enforcement officers carrying out their lawful duties. To act otherwise would be tantamount to willingly becoming enablers to fraud.”

Arrested lodgers

The agency listed the names of those arrested during the raid in Abeokuta to include Garfar Olamide Taiwo, Fadimaye Habeeb, Badmus Idris, Samuel Victor, Seun Fuad, Alli Isaac, Oyeleke Mubarak, Bolu Soetan, Koleosho Eniola, Saheed Abidemi, Olaewe Tosin, Ayedun Idowu, Oniyitan Ayomide, Akinlabi Precious, Gbadebo Sultan, Adeyemi Habeeb, Balogun Hassan, Sulaimon Ayub Damilare, and Akinsola Usman.

Others are Ajibola Femi Sodiya, Ridwan Alani, Olusesi Lanre, Eniatimo Oludare, Taiwo Opeyemi, Akindele Kabiru Johnson Hammed, Idowu Gabriel, Adekanmi Adejumo, Peter Babatunde, Okeowo Sunday, Abudu Habeeb, Sabair Rasaq, Ademuyiwa Basit, Toriola Opeyemi, Babayode Abiola, Agbaje Habeeb, Sorinola Oluwatobiloba, Abiodun Elegbede, Kayode Daniel ,Lawal Alabi, Oyewole Korede, Aberuagba Gafar, Adekunle Emmanuel, Okunade Azeez, and Ojediran Sodiq.


“They were apprehended at their hideouts which happened to be popular hotels in the ancient city,” the commission said.

“The operation which was based on verified intelligence backed by weeks of surveillance was nearly frustrated by the hotel owners who employed various antics, including shutting down power supply, to enable some of the suspects to escape arrest.

“Despite the lack of cooperation by the hotel owners, the operatives demonstrated professionalism in ensuring that no one was hurt nor property damaged during the operations, contrary to the narrative in a section of the media.”

The agency said ten “exotic” cars, dozens of mobile phones, laptops and several incriminating documents were recovered from the suspected fraudsters.

“They will be arraigned in court as soon as the investigation is concluded.”

I concur,
Nigerian hotels are really enabling fraudster activities.

I'd tell you why.

One day, on an unscheduled visit to Essien Udim LGA , I had to sleep over in a hotel. In usual character, I asked the receptionist if I could be connected with a professional escort who could make my night worthwhile.

The mumu girl brought out her phone and began showing me photos of various ladies who were capable and ready.
I ended up choosing one very tall chick who looked a lot like Tyra Banks, from the picture, her boobs were very healthy and yansh was full-option.

As a well-trained gentleman, I paid in advance for the escort, tipped the receptionist and went back to my room.

2 hours gone, 4 cans of black Bullet down, tipsy as fvck with my preek standing like the rock of Gibraltar and there was a knock on my door.

I opened it and if not for the heels, I'd swear she was a midget.
Her body odour which could rival that of a male goat heralded her arrival.
Her legs were like yam tubers planted in the peak of harmattan and I could tell right away it was 'foam-padded bra' she had on.

I knew it was a lose-lose for me because where will I start from?
I couldn't even imagine putting my flute in her mouth to blow because her teeth were stained let alone picture her grabbing it with her bleach-burnt knuckles.
Abi is it the dry bony yansh that NwaAmaikpe will now smack?

My standing tower collapsed like the World Trade Center and I heartbrokenly sent her back.

I will later learn that I couldn't get a refund as she had been paid.

I just counted my losses and thanked the almighty for making my hands long enough to touch my preek. Because God knows that if I did not masturbate that night, I might have ended up as one of those unfortunate people that get paraded on Nairaland for unimaginable sex crimes.

So you see, some of these hotels really enable fraudulent activities.

[b]Nah where person dey work person dey chop..

Okay... I own a hotel. You wan come lodge for months but you be yahoo boy... I’m I suppose to reject you? What you do for a living is solely your problem, not mine... Just enter the room already and pay me the muller..

Every country on earth has boys that does illegal thing for a living, every countries on earth..

Russia government will protect it hackers cuz they know they can always tax them..

Italy government will protect it mafias cuz surely the mafias are remitting money to Italia government..

Nigeria government is blessed with yahoo boys but the dumb government is chasing them away to other countries - (and dem dey complain say Naira dey fall)

There are naija boys in Malaysia
There are naija boys in SA
There are naija boys in Cyprus etc..

You won’t see their government going after them cuz every single dollar into the country is good for the economy..

Forget all the audio reasons why Naira is losing it’s value against dollar - one visible reason i know is that we don’t have much people bringing in USA dollars into the country anymore..

Compare Nigeria of when boys are using western union to bring in dollars into the country to Nigeria of today, you’ll understand it..

The most dumbest thing is ever since they’ve been arresting these so call boys, there has never been any significant change, aside that these boys are relocating away from Nigeria..[/b]

Just the Way APC are enabling Polithievesians and corrupt service chiefs.

Who is enabling The Yahoo police Man Abba Kyari? Hoteliers too abi?

I don't support crime, but EFCC has no moral right to be a law enforcement agency.


Like Hisbah like EFCC, bunch of hypocrites.

Na who no get money for Nigeria be thief and Sinner, according to EFCC and Hisbah respectively.

every hotel in the country you will see these men. Even if they can get nice apartments but they will still go to the hotel to disturb normal people.

Nigeria has simply gone to the dogs!

They do this because people don't have guns. You raid my place of business illegally and hope for my cooperation?

Someone has to take them up on this. Let us know the empowering laws that gave the EFCC the right to break into hotels and hospitality facilities at the dead of night to disturb guests.
