Prior to the arrival of ICTs in Sub Sahara Africa (SSA), Africa was seen as the Dark Continent. The development of ICTs was therefore expected to connect Africa to the rest of the world, and establish it as part of the Global community. This endeavor exposed Africa to the unintended consequences of the Internet (cybercrime).This study sought to address that question by examining three principal issues: First, it identified the various stakeholders involved in the fight against cybercrime in SSA. Second, it examined the existing laws, policies and practices employed by stakeholders to combat this malaise. Third, it discussed the impediments that these stakeholder structures and institutions face in countering cybercrime. A sound knowledge of these principal issues will provide policy makers and stakeholders with an in-depth understanding of the various structures and their existing efforts to combat cyber crime.
