Kwara POS operator allegedly uses N280m mistakenly transferred to his account to purchase properties, cars, and sponsor people for lesser Hajj

A Point of Sale (POS) operator named Alfa Rafiu has been detained by the Kwara State Police Command for reportedly spending N280 million that was inadvertently deposited to his bank account.

According to the Nigerian Tribune, the suspect, who dwells in the Akuji property in the Abayawo neighborhood of the state’s Ilorin West Local Government Area, received the funds in batches of several million naira a few weeks ago and promptly began spending them.

Neighbors of the suspect and those close to him said they were surprised at how Rafiu suddenly started living large and became a big spender.

To their surprise, a source who talked with the publication disclosed that Rafiu lavished millions on homes, automobiles, and even sponsored pilgrims to the lesser Hajj in Saudi Arabia.

“Instead of alerting the bank that unintentionally sent the substantial sum of money to his account, he went on a speeding rampage.

“Rafiu purchased homes, automobiles, and sponsored pilgrims to the smaller Hajj. Although he was kind to many people in the neighborhood, some locals were shocked by his newfound fortune despite working as a POS operator, the person claimed.

The Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID) from Alagbon-Close, Ikoyi, made the arrest, according to State Police Command spokesperson SP Ajayi Okasanmi, who verified it on Tuesday.
