With the current rate at which Yahoo Boys are now hunting for ladies’ pants, Warri girls, according to a report by Sunday Vanguard, are now taking the caution to anoint pants before putting it on.
It was gathered 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 N250,000.
The price can be higher when the ‘boys’ confirm “ through science that the girl has not done any abortion”, Esther, another resident in the area, said.
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”, Esther added.
Alero, who lives with her parents, said she has three adult sisters. The anointing oil and holy water, according to her, had the capacity to neutralize any evil plan of Yahoo Boys on their pants.
For Tamera, a charming lady in her late 20’s on Jakpa Road, she and her mother no longer hang their underwears on the rope outside the flat in the compound where they live.
“Because of Yahoo Boys, we 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” She said
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”. When asked if they also handled their braziers in like manner, her response was spontaneous, “Yes o. No difference between pants and braziers. We hide them very well now. Ladies pants na mega bucks for Warri”.
There is also an unconfirmed incident at a shopping centre in Warri where a Yahoo Boy allegedly 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 reportedly hopped into the guy’s car. After the guy finished, transfer of cash allegedly 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”, a lady who did not want her name in print said.
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, according to residents, “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, Vanguard reports.
