In recent times the increase in such engagements has reached an alarming rate as those involved locally called ‘yahoo yahoo’ or ‘yahoo boys’ rely on their computer skills to victimize unsuspecting persons in cyberspace.
The other side of it is the spiritual dimension which has been brought in place not only to victimize persons but to end the lives of such unsuspecting persons, especially females for ritual purposes, among others.
Barring their minds on Invicta Flagship Programme; Perspectives, some residents of Kaduna expressed their opinions on the causes of such habits.
They further lamented on the lifestyles of politicians, religious leaders, and the likes which tend to activate such attitudes in the youths.
