The ATM card was subsequently used to make a series of incremental payments totaling N6.6 million into his betting account. His payment history revealed that he made repeated transfers totaling 130,000 to his betting account.
He was unfortunately found in Badagry, Lagos State, where he was detained and shamed for suspected larceny.

She said the young man had bought a Moissanite diamond necklace and pendant and asked for payment upon delivery, which is against the terms of her business agreement. Nevertheless, she complied and dispatched a rider to deliver the property.
The young guy, however, made a cunning move on the dispatch rider and fled with the jewelry, which is valued at N920k. The merchant pledged never to use payment upon delivery again after the bad experience.
