The internet is one of the most pervasive technological innovations in human history. While it is a double-edged sword, its implications for human dignity, privacy, protection and development are complicated, under-researched and weakly understood. It is against this background that this article examined the cybercrime phenomenon (yahoo yahoo in the local context) which has been on the rise in Nigeria and Africa since the last decade. This article is to empirically examine the real interface of science, technological innovations and development as it affects human dignity through African case study. The article examined the cybercrime phenomenon among youth in the Ibadan metropolis of South-western Nigeria with human dignity and development perspective. Both quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection and data analysis were adopted. Important findings were made and useful conclusions/recommendations were made to enhance the sustainability of technological innovations, human dignity and development in Africa and other developing countries.
