An Internet fraudster (Yahoo-Boy), Abiodun Joseph, who impersonated the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on his Facebook account and duped two Nigerian ladies based in the United States of America of various sums of money, has been arrested.

Joseph who was arrested by officers of the Ogun State Police Command, last Wednesday 19th April at Ilese, uploaded Ooni’s pictures on his Facebook account and in no time, people mostly ladies began to send him requests, many commenting on his good looks.

Joseph revealed that many ladies sent requests to him, that they wanted to be his ‘Oloris’ thinking he was genuine, and this was how he was able to defraud some of them.

He disclosed that the ladies were really desperate, as some of them sent n3de pictures, showing their breasts and private parts. Joseph, however, said one of ladies had demanded that he should buy her a N45m house for her.

But Joseph said he told her that she had to pay N5m out of the amount and he would make up the balance for her. He was still waiting for that N5m last Wednesday before the police swooped on his residence and arrested him.

Reacting to this, the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, said Joseph had been using his Facebook and Whatsapp accounts to dupe unsuspecting members of the public.

He said, “On interrogation, he owned up to the crime and confessed that he defrauded the ladies of N600,000.”

Speaking with newsmen, Joseph said he opened the Facebook account in October 2016 with the aim of defrauding people.

According to him: “I opened the Facebook account in October last year purposely for Internet scam. I knew that Ooni was popular and that was why I uploaded his picture.

“A few days after I opened the Facebook account, many people, mostly ladies, sent friend requests. Many of them said I had good looks and they wanted to be my oloris.

“In our chats, I told them that they have to pay some money for traditional ritual if they are really interested in being the oloris. Two of them in the US fell for the scam and sent some money to me totalling N600,000 through money transfer.

“One sent N350,000 and the second one sent N250,000.

“Some of the ladies were really desperate; some of them sent nude pictures, showing their breasts and private parts.

“I regret my action, most especially using the name and pictures of the Ooni to perpetuate fraud. I seek his forgiveness,” he said.
