POS Operator Buys Car, Sponsor People To Umrah With Millions Of Naira Mistakenly Sent To His Account

Alfa Rafiu who is a Point of Sale Operator (POS) was reportedly arrested in Ilorin, Kwara State for squandering the sum of 280m that was mistakenly sent to his bank account.

New Telegraph learned that the suspect, who is a resident of the Akuji compound, Abayawo area in the Ilorin West local government area of the state, received the money in batches of several millions of Naira some weeks ago and went on a spending spree.

Instead of doing the right thing by reporting the transactions, he went on a spending spree, buying homes, and cars, and sponsoring people to the lesser Hajj, some of whom are currently in Saudi Arabia.

A source in the area during an interview with the aforementioned publication blamed the suspect for the trouble he had put himself into.

The source said instead of drawing the attention of the bank to the transferred money, Rafiu bought cars, and houses including sponsoring some people for the lesser Hajj.

Instead of him drawing the attention of the bank that mistakenly transferred the huge fund to his account, he went on a speeding spree.

“Rafiu bought houses and cars and sponsored people to the lesser Hajj. Although he was generous to several people in the community, some residents were surprised about his sudden wealth as a POS operator”

SP Ajayi Okasanmi, the spokesperson of the State Police Command, confirmed Rafiu’s arrest on Tuesday.
