PoS Operator Arrested For Spending N280 Million Mistakenly Sent To His Account

A PoS operator simply identified as Alfa Rafiu has been arrested in Kwara State for allegedly squandering N280m mistakenly sent to his account.

The suspect, Daily Trust correspondent gathered, is a resident of Akuji compound, Abayawo area in Ilorin West Local Government Area of the state.

According to sources familiar with the issue, Rafiu suddenly went on a spending spree after he received the alerts in batches of several million some weeks ago.

“About two weeks ago, he received several bank alerts that scaled up to N280 million which he knew nothing about.

“But instead of him drawing the attention of the bank that mistakenly transferred the huge fund, he went on a speeding spree.

“Rafiu bought houses, cars and sponsored people to the lesser Hajj. Some of those he sponsored are presently in Saudi Arabia as we speak.

“Although he was generous to several people in the community, some residents were surprised about his sudden wealth as a PoS operator,” the source added.

It was gathered that the suspect has been arrested by police from the “C” Division Police Station, Oja-Oba, Ilorin, accompanied by some bank officials.

When Daily Trust visited his residence on Tuesday, his PoS shop was closed, and some of the residents in the compound said he had travelled and didn’t know when he would be back.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Kwara State Command, Ajayi Okasanmi (SP), confirmed the incident.

“Yes, the matter is true, but his arrest was effected by the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) from Alagbon-Close, Ikoyi, Lagos which makes it completely out of our purview,” he stated.
