Reports reaching Auchijeffblog that Five suspected fraudsters were arrested by Amotekun operatives at Ikere-Ekiti, the Ekiti State Commandant of Amotekun, Brigadier-General Joe Komolafe has confirmed. The Commandant said the suspects were caught after a victim made a report.
General Komolafe said: “Their modus operandi is that they will call you, tell you they have seen vision for you for your life to be ok, go and bring this, go and bring that. They dupe people to the extent that the victims are threatened that they would lose every member of their family“.
How did it start? My colleague in Ogun State put a call to me that one of the people staying in Abeokuta, in Ogun State was duped of a whooping ₦2.5 Million or there about by some group in Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti State, threatening to kill him, that I should please assist.
Asked how they got his phone number to establish contact with him in their illicit deal, Mr James said he does not know. He said it was after the suspects were caught by Amotekun that he realised they were not spiritualists but those who employ fetish means to defraud people.
