A celebration over a newly-bought Lexus GX 460 turned sour on Friday night when six suspected internet fraudsters, otherwise known as Yahoo boys, died after ramming the car into a stationary truck along the Agbarho-Ughelli section of the East-West Road near Ekiugbo Junction in Ughelli, North Local Government Area of Delta State.

Tribune reports that the incident occured 8:00 p.m on Friday and left the car damaged beyond repairs.

The victims, who were allegedly under the influence of substances, reportedly died on the spot after their vehicle rammed into the stationary  truck.

Sources said one of the friends of the victims had just bought the Lexus GX 460 which necessitated the celebration.
