A Nigerian from Oyo State, known as Adeniyi, and based in France recently appealed to the Nigerian Police to help recover his money from one woman, Aishat Akintunde, 33,that he met on Facebook in November 2016. Adeniyi reportedly told the police on the phone to arrest the woman and keep her in detention that he was on his way to Nigeria.
two days, Adeniyi arrived Nigeria and went straight to the FSARS
office, Lagos to narrate what happened between him and the suspect.
Akintunde, a resident of Egbado road, Dalemo, Alakuko, Alagbada, Lagos
and hailed from Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria allegedly succeeded in
defrauding her France-based victim, Ayobami Adeniyi after she promised
to marry him and also helped him purchase a filling station in Nigeria.
“I am a Nigerian from Oyo State and based in France. I
met the suspect Akintude on Facebook in November 2016. And in the cause
of our discussion, the suspect told me that she was a divorcee and that
if I was ready for a relationship I should send her money to rent an
accommodation and I sent the sum of N100,000 to her because I was
desperately in need of a wife from Yoruba land.
February 2017, the suspect told me that her mother was a big time oil
dealer in Nigeria managing three filing stations. She later told me that
her mother was about to sell off one of the filing stations for N4
million and she advised me to purchase the station so that any time I
returned to Nigeria to settle down with her, I would have investment to
fall back on. She sent three pictures of the three filing station to me
to convince me.
“I accepted her advice thinking that she was an
honest woman who would be a good house wife. Before I started investing
in the filing station, I requested to speak with her mother to confirm
her claims and her mother equally confirmed through phone call that she
was an oil dealer operating three filing stations in Nigeria and that
she was about to sell one of the station for N4 million.
her mother’s confirmation, I told the suspect to open an account in her
name for me to be transferring money into it till the N4 million was
completed to pay for the filing station.
I transferred the sum of
N750,000, N650,000, 250,000 and N200, 000 into her account. I equally
sold my Peugeot car in Nigeria for N1 million and remitted the money
into her account.
“I also shipped a Renault bus with properties
inside valued about N2.5 million to her to sell and pay for the filing
station. But I was surprised to hear that she did not buy any filing
station, but instead converted all my money to her personal use and
plunged me into debt.
“I am now appealing to the Nigerian Police to help me recover my money from the suspects,” Adeniyi appealed.
