A 31-year-old man in Ilorin, Kwara state, who claimed to be an Islamic scholar and herbalist, Jamiu Isiaka has stung a South Korean, impersonating prominent public officials.

Among the people that Isiaka impersonated were the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, (NNPC) Dr Maikanti Baru and the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

According to the EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, the suspect with others who are still at large allegedly used the names of the senior government officials to scam a South Korean national, Keun Sig Kim, under pretence of getting him an "NNPC licence" that would enable him purchase a company.

Isiaka, during interrogation with EFCC officials, claimed that he used the money to perform sacrifice on behalf of the petitioner.He claimed to have bought a vulture, elephant's skin, elephantís intestine, skull of a lion, liver of gorilla, among others.

The petitioner had paid over N30million (Thirty Million Naira) into the suspectís account as fee to get the license.

According to the victim: "I transferred $4,285.071 (Four Thousand, Two Hundred and Eighty-five United States Dollars, Seventy-one cents) to the United Bank of Africa, account number 2107575870 in the name of one Jamiu Isiaka, an associate of Mr Shola Adeshina. It is noteworthy that this account particulars have been provided severally for me to make transfer to."

Isiaka, during interrogation by EFCC officials, claimed that he used the money to perform sacrifice on behalf of the petitioner.

He claimed to have bought a vulture, elephant's skin, elephant's intestine, skull of a lion, liver of gorilla, among others.

The suspect will soon be arraigned in court while efforts are ongoing to nab the accomplices, still at large.NAN
