A source who spoke to the publication revealed that Rafiu splurged the millions on houses, cars, and even sponsored people to the lesser Hajj in Saudi Arabia, much to their surprise.

“Instead of him to draw the attention of the bank that mistakenly transferred the huge fund to his account, he went on a speeding spree.

“Rafiu bought houses and cars and sponsored people to the lesser Hajj. Although he was generous to several people in the community, some residents were surprised about his sudden wealth as a POS operator,” the source said.

Spokesperson of the State Police Command, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, who confirmed the arrest on Tuesday, said, “His arrest was effected by the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) from Alagbon-Close, Ikoyi, Lagos which makes it out of our jurisdiction.”
