“I learnt Furniture after my secondary school but when I didn’t get money to start my own shop, I decide to engage in illegal activities. I was into “Yahoo Yahoo” business before I learnt the act of obtaining money fraudulently through a brother who reside beside my house in Ife.

My last victim wanted her business to boom and I told her to send money to my account promising to prepare a charm that will attract more customers to her shop” he said
