Yahoo Boy Who Impersonated Ooni Of Ife Dupes Two U.S Ladies


It has been revealed that an arrested internet fraudster, Abiodun Joseph, who impersonated the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on his Facebook account, duped two Nigerian ladies based in the United States of America of various sums of money.

Joseph who was arrested by officers of the Ogun State Police Command, last Wednesday 19th April at Ilese, uploaded Ooni’s pictures on his Facebook account and in no time, people mostly ladies began to send him requests, many commenting on his good looks. Joseph revealed that many ladies sent requests to him, that they wanted to be his ‘Oloris’ thinking he was genuine, and this was how he was able to defraud some of them.

“But in our chats, I told them that they have to pay some money if they are really interested in being my Oloris. Two of them based in the U.S fell for the scam and sent some money totalling N600,000 to me through money transfer mode" he said.

He went further to disclose that the ladies were really desperate, as some of them sent nude pictures, showing their breasts and private parts. Joseph, however, said one of ladies had demanded that he should buy her a N45m house for her.

But Joseph said he told her that she had to pay N5m out of the amount and he would make up the balance for her. He was still waiting for that N5m last Wednesday before the police swooped on his residence and arrested him.

Reacting to this, the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, said Joseph had been using his Facebook and Whatsapp accounts to dupe unsuspecting members of the public. Joseph said he opened the Facebook account October last year, purposely to defraud people.
