the syndicate had, sometime in April 2015,
requested six i-phones valued at Nine
Hundred and Eighty Four Thousand Naira
(N984,000:00k) from Ajiboye Adeyinka Kabir
of No. 3, Oyekunle Street, Ajegunle, Lagos
State. They lied to Ajiboye that they were
working at Government House, Akure.

“Ajiboye brought the six i-phones to Akure
as requested by the syndicate on
10/5/2015. On arrival at Ondo garage
Akure, the three fraudsters took him in
their operational vehicle, a Nissan Armanda
Jeep with Registration Number JS-28-EKY,
and pretended to be heading for
Government House, Akure.


“On the way, they made a detour to
Fiwasaye-Ijapo Road, Akure where they
forcefully took the I-phones from Ajiboye,
and pushed him out of the vehicle in
motion. Ajiboye sustained various degrees
of injuries and was rushed by Policemen at
