“He has duped desperate job and auction seekers to the tune of over 20 million naira, sometimes using the services of lawyers.

“In one of his escapades, he collected money from 7 (seven) job seekers in Taraba State, issued them fake appointment letters, and caused them to travel all the way to Bayelsa State for fake training. They got there before realising they were duped.”
