Traders at Warewa community, in the Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State, have been defrauded by a ‘wonder bank’ operator, identified as Ngozi Adline.
Ngozi, who hails from Imo State, allegedly swindled traders in the community out of over N2m.
It was gathered that the woman operated under the name, Link M Investment Limited, while two workers, Oluwatoyin Adebayo and Esther Adelanwa, were used to collect money from customers.
It was learnt that her whereabouts had been shrouded in mystery since August 2016 when she fled the neighbourhood with the N2m collected from some residents of the area.
It was gathered that the middle-aged woman had also relocated from her residence in Ibafo, a neighbouring community, while her children were said to be living with her brother in Abuja.
One of the workers, Adebayo, said the fraud was reported at the Warewa Police Station, adding that she and her colleague were under pressure from the angry customers to refund their money.
