The fear of Yahoo boys is now the beginning of wisdom for ladies in Warri, Delta State. We gathered that Yahoo boys now buy lady pant for N250,000.
Alero, a female resident of Ubeji area of Warri revealed that; “As a rule now in my house, we pour anointing oil and sprinkle holy water on our pants before wearing them because of Yahoo Boys”.
Sources said that; “Undies, particularly of girls between the ages of 16 to 32, are hot cakes for use by ritualists. One pant, according to some residents, sells for as high as two hundred and fifty thousand naira.”
“The price can be higher when the ‘boys’ confirm through science that the girl has not done any abortion. The pants are allegedly used for money ritual. After they finish with the pants, their owners will lose their wombs which is the real ritual. The anointing oil and holy water, had the capacity to neutralize any evil plan of Yahoo Boys on their pants.”
Tamera added that; “Because of Yahoo Boys, my mother and I no longer hang our underwears on ropes outside the flat in our compound. We live with five other tenants in our compound. There are boys in the compound too.”
“Since we heard the news, we have been hanging our pants in the bathroom; whether they get dry or not is no longer the issue. We sometimes use hot iron on them to get properly dry”.
“No difference between pants and braziers. We hide them very well now. Ladies pants na mega bucks for Warri. I sit outside until my pants dry on the rope.”
“i wash mostly on Saturdays and sit by the rope until my pants get dried. I just bring out a chair, sit outside until my undies dry and I take them in. No room for gambling. The story is everywhere that people have been recruited to go for ladies’ pants for attractive prices.”
Lola lamented that; “Since the news hit Warri that Yahoo Boys were after ladies pants, I have been very careful with personal effects. Many girls now go to their boyfriends houses with no undies on. You no know who be who. Even these our boyfriends, their eyes no clear.”
“We are just gambling if it will lead to marriage. In the past when you visited your boy friend, if you were spending a night or two in his house, you took some underwears in your bag. But it is no longer so. You just go like that, not even with one. Just like that. You get what I mean , Oga journalist. No be my head dem go take break coconut.”
Esther said that; “We avoid lonely routes at night. I heard some girls had been asked on the street at gunpoint to pull their pants or be shot. It is so bad. We heard some people now go round in flashy cars looking for girls on lonely roads to order at gun point to pull their pants or be shot.”
“You will just see a vehicle pull in front of you and guys will jump out. All they do is order you to pull your pants. So, in my house, we the girls don’t go on errands at night. From 6pm you don’t see us on the street. We also try to avoid lonely roads during the day.”
Other sources squealed that; “There is also an incident at a shopping centre in Warri where a Yahoo Boy offered a girl fifty thousand naira to just caress her. It was a good deal, the girl thought, after all he was not going to have sex. So they hopped into the guy’s car. After the guy finished, transfer of cash was done to her account, she went to the convenience to freshen up.”
“It was at the toilet she bled to death. Her friend who was with her that night was the one that raised the alarm, narrated all that happened to everyone.”
They added that; “Despite the seeming extra care on the part of many girls not to fall victim of Yahoo ritualists, some of the Yahoo Boys, Street Boys, Everywhere Stew Guys, as they are called in Warri, oftentimes boast… ‘Baba God will always provide data for subscription’. Data here means whatever they need for ritual while subscription means renewal of ritual to sustain cash flow.”
