The House Leader relied on Order VII, Rule 40 of the House Rules to draw the attention of the House to the need to caution owners and operators of hotels in Kwara State on the dangers inherent in harbouring Yahoo-Yahoo fraudsters in their hotels.

Hon. Magaji noted the importance of the advent of social media by transforming the entire world into a global village where people interact and communicate without much hindrance.

Hon. Magaji expressed concern about the “involvement of hoteliers who have turned themselves to patrons of these fraudsters by allowing them to stay in their premises for a very long period after paying huge sums of money to lodge in their facilities.”
