A self-acclaimed Alfa, Alhaji Ibrahim Ahamido,has been arrested for allegedly defrauding a trader, Sarah Moses.
PUNCH Metro learnt that Ahamido collected N350,000 from Moses, promising to boost her business by turning the money to N5m.
He was, however, alleged to have fled with the money, after giving his girlfriend, Hawa Musa, N100,000 to “renew their love”.
A source explained that the victim had been introduced to Ahamido sometime in December, 2015, in a restaurant in Lekki.
Ahamido was said to have boasted special powers that could make him multiply money after prayers.
The source said,
“The woman initially did not believe. So, he promised to help her bring out her child, who at the time was arrested by the police for an offence he committed.
“He prepared some concoction for her, and just like that, the woman’s son was released.
“That immediately convinced her and she trusted him.”
