The Kwara State Police Command has arrested a Point of Sale (POS) operator, Alfa Rafiu, for allegedly spending the sum of N280 million mistakenly sent to his bank account. Rafiu, who is a resident of the Akuji compound in the Abayawo area of Ilorin West local government area of the state, was said to have received the money in batches of several millions of Naira some weeks ago and went on a spending spree.
According to sources in the area, residents expressed surprise at how Rafiu had suddenly become a big spender, and blamed him for not drawing the attention of the bank that mistakenly transferred the huge sum to his account.
“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,” a source told the Nigerian Tribune.
