Another suspected member of the notorious scammers’ Syndicate that one Wasiu from Ore, Ondo state – an HIV victim, said collected about N4M from him on the pretext to give him the cure for the disease – has been nabbed.
The scam syndicate allegedly hid the assorted cars bought within the period of this scam in the compound of the arrested suspect identified as Owoseni Taye..
One of his rooms had a mini shrine, according to a report posted by Mercy Dabs communications.
The victim had earlier explained how he fell into their hands. He said he received a mobile phone line recharge pin from an unfamiliar phone number with a short note that reads “sell this recharge card for your transport fare home…”
The event next to this was a call from the same line, telling him the SMS was sent to him in error and begging him to send it back to them.
Consequent upon the return of the SMS, he received another call from the line appreciating him for the good gesture. At the peak of their conversation, the old man on phone did as though he saw vision concerning me.
“He told me I am living with a deadly disease, but I said know. But when he convinced me the more, I affirmed his word.”
Wasiu, whom a few other members of his family have also contracted the disease, deeply fell into them before discovering himself.
But, a 69-year-Old member of the syndicate, Adedayo Akinjisola from Ondo, has confessed recently that the matter of the victim was brought to them by somebody very close to him (the victim).
When Omo Edema launched investigation into the matter, Taye Owoseni (Taye Falekulo, Taye Yahoo) was the person the group first sent, fronted by a popular radio presenter in Ondo.
They claimed innocent to the real evil taking place at the shrine in the bush at Abusoro after Okenla .
He declared specifically that the house (shrine) was built by their father, but claimed not to know who letted it out among the members of their family.
