Married Woman Duped After Paying N850,000 To Her 42-Year-Old Lover

A 42-year old man, Mr. Abioye Olakunle, has been caught in a double game after he obtained N850,000 from a married woman, one Mrs. Kehinde Opebiye and promised to marry her but ended up duping her in Lagos. According to PM Express, the alleged scam happened at Irewolede Street, Shasha area of Lagos where Olakunle resided with his wife and children.
The woman was reportedly planning to leave her husband and marry Olakunle before the bubble busted.
It was learnt that the woman discovered that Olakunle was married and had children but lied to her that he was still single and wanted to marry her. She then requested her money back but Olakunle refused. He asked her to come in and join his wife; as he was still prepared to marry her having realised that he was married.
The victim then confessed to her husband who had been suspicious of her movements before she opened up. She pleaded for forgiveness and told the husband that she might have been charmed by Olakunle to behave in such a manner. Her husband forgave her; they became united, went to the police at Shasha Division and reported the alleged scam. The police later arrested Olakunle, detained and asked him to refund the money to her.
It was gathered from police sources that the suspect admitted that he had collected money from her, promised to marry her and said that he was still prepared to marry her if she was ready to be his second wife. He also admitted that he did not tell her that he was already married but had not reneged on the promise of marriage as they agreed before she sent the money to his account.
However, Olakunle was found culpable and charged before the Ejigbo Magistrates court on Thursday for marriage fraud and stealing.
He pleaded not guilty.
The prosecutor, Inspector G. Simon did not oppose his bail because the offence was bailable. Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mr. L.K.J. Layeni granted Olakunle bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.
He was remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail condition. The matter was adjourned till 25 June, 2018.
