39-Year-Old Man Arrested For Posing As Shoprite Marketing Manager And Duping Job Seekers In Ibadan

A jobless 39- year- old man , Tayo Ogunleye, has been arrested by the Oyo State Police Command for allegedly defrauding job seekers by claiming to be the marketing manager of Shoprite, a retail store on Ring Road, Ibadan.

The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, said the suspect promised his victims non- existing jobs at the store if they paid certain amount of money to him.

According to the CP, the suspect usually issued his victims fake appointment letters after they completed the payment, and went into hiding.

Odude said, “The suspect, who posed as the marketing manager of Shoprite, defrauded 28 complainants by promising them jobs that never existed . He obtained various sums of money from them and to convince them, he issued several fake appointment letters on the letterhead of the multi -national company.

“His arrest at the Apata area of Ibadan on January 31, 2018, followed a complaint made against him at a police station by Yusuf Yekeen , who was one of Ogunleye ’s numerous victims.”
