Man docked for defrauding Afe Babalola of N2.5million

A 35-year-old man, Abdulrahman Muazu, has been arraigned before an Ado Ekiti Magistrate’s Court for allegedly defrauding eminent lawyer, Chief Afe Babalola (SAN) of N2.5 million.
Before duping Babalola, Muazu had allegedly impersonated the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev. Matthew Kukah.
The suspect, in a telephone conversation with Babalola, posed as Kukah and requested a sum of N2.5 million as part of funds being raised as aid for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the Northeast.
Muazu was charged alongside others at large on two-count charge of felony and fraud.
The accused person was slammed with obtaining money under pretence with intent to defraud, and presenting himself as Bishop Kukah with which he obtained the sum of N2.5 million from Babalola.
