Operatives of the Ibadan Zonal Command of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have arrested one Ajayi Oluwabukola Temitope, for allegedly obtaining money to the tune of N24.955 million by false pretence.
The 42-year-old Ibadan socialite was arrested following a series of petitions in which the suspect who claims to be a registered dealer with soft drinks manufacturers in Ibadan, Oyo state promised to supply products to complaints but failed after collecting money from them.
In one of the petitions, Ajayi promised to supply a truck load of carbonated soft drinks worth N17.375 million from Ibadan to Mabera Trading Company and Altine Musa in Sokoto but failed to do so.
In the same vein, she also allegedly promised to supply soft drinks worth N7.580 million to one Bashiru Musa, a business man based in Sokoto and Ibadan but never did.
The suspect will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
