Kwara POS operator acquired mansions, cars and sponsored people to Hajj with N280m mistakenly transferred to his account

The Nigerian Tribune reported that the suspect, a resident of the Akuji compound in the Ilorin West local government area, received the money in several batches and embarked on a lavish spending spree.

Despite being a generous sponsor of people to the lesser Hajj and purchasing houses and cars, the sudden wealth raised suspicion among those close to him. Sources in the area have attributed the suspect’s current predicament to his failure to alert the bank of the inadvertent transfer.
