A Point of Sale (POS) operator named Alfa Rafiu has been detained in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State, for reportedly engaging in a shopping binge with N280 million that was unintentionally sent to his bank account.
According to reports, the suspect, a resident of the Akuji compound in the Abayawo neighborhood of the state’s Ilorin West local government area, received the money in several million Naira batches a few weeks ago.
Also, it was learned that locals, particularly those near the suspects, had voiced surprise at Rafiu’s abrupt transformation into a major spender.
According to local sources, the suspect should not have drawn attention to himself and was to fault for the trouble he had caused.
Instead of alerting the bank that unintentionally deposited a significant sum of money to his account, Rafiu went on a speeding spree and purchased homes, automobiles, and sponsored pilgrims to the lesser Hajj. Even though he showed generosity to many individuals in the neighborhood, some locals were taken aback by his unexpected affluence as a POS operator.
Ajayi Okasanmi (SP), the police public relations officer for the Kwara state command, verified the occurrence and stated that “his arrest was done by the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) from Alagbon-Close, Ikoyi, Lagos which makes it outside of our jurisdiction.”
