Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibadan
Zonal office have arrested one Okiribiti Adunola Aminat over an
alleged case of conspiracy and obtaining money under false pretence.
In a rehash of the old infamous advance fee fraud tact of spiritual
help and solution to all problems, a victim has recounted her ordeal
in the hands of a syndicate to the operatives signaling a warning to
Aminat alongside other three cohorts (still at large) conspired using
the decoy of providing cure and spiritual solution to the health
challenges of the victim’s (name withheld) children and fleeced her of
the sum of Forty five million naira (N45M).
Aminat 34, who is married to one Wande Sesan Okiribiti, 47 (still at
large) confessed that some of the money obtained from the victim was
collected by her through her bank account domiciled at one of the new
generation banks located in Ibadan. According to the complainant, she
allegedly met Wande sometimes in October 2014 at Utako, Abuja while in
search of a cure for the health challenges of her children. Wande who
posed as a local herb hawker and a spiritualist capable of providing
solutions to all problems of unsuspecting patrons lured her to
believing he had the cure to her children’s challenges.
She subsequently made different payments as advised totaling forty
five million naira. However, the wool fell off her eyes when the
request for funds transfers continued unabated, hence a petition to
Members of the public are however, by the experience of this victim,
advised to be weary of this age long tactic to avoid falling preyb
Aminat will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
