According to a report, the fraudster met his waterloo after he successfully posed as a herbalist to defraud a United States-based cab driver, Mr. Kazeem Adebayo Omoniyi.
Mr. Abiodun David posed as a herbalist to defraud Mr. Kazeem Adebayo Ominiyi . A United States-based cab driver, Mr. Kazeem Adebayo Omoniyi, has narrated how a suspected fraudster, Mr. Abiodun David, posing as a herbalist, duped him of N4million.
According to Omoniyi, he fell for David’s ruse after the suspect mentioned things were not working out well for him and he had been expecting something which was yet to materialise. The incident happened when he came to Nigeria for a brief visit. Omoniyi narrated how that he had earlier sold a land to a GSM service provider company, but the company was yet to make payment. So when David mentioned that Omoniyi had been hoping to get something that seemed impossible, his mind raced to the unfinished business with the network provider company. David told him that if he wanted that pending problem to be sorted out, he would help him with a charm for “favour and progress”. The police recovered a live tortoise from David.
Narrating his experience via phone, Omoniyi said that when he told David that his charms were not working and that he wasn’t going to pay any more money, the man started threatening him.
David, however, insisted that Omoniyi was lying. According to him, the total money he collected from the victim was just N380,000. The Zone 2 Police Public Relations Officer (ZPPRO), SP Dolapo Badmos, said police embarked on investigation after receiving complaint from the victim.
