I used the money to buy Vulture, Lion’s intestine, Elephant’s skin….., suspect confesses



A 31-year-old Islamic scholar and herbalist, Jamiu Isiaka, has confessed to have used part of the money fraudulently obtained from a petitioner, Keun Sig Kim, South Korean national, Keun Sig Kim, some items for sacrifice.

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

The suspect was arrested by the operatives of the Economic and Finnacial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), for allegedly impersonating the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr Maikanti Baru, and the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, among other prominent citizens.

The EFCC’s acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, in a statement, said the suspect, with others who were still at large, allegedly used the names of the senior government officials to scam Mr. Kim.

The suspect was said to have impersonated the petitioner under the pretence of getting him an NNPC licence that would enable him purchase a company.

The statement read in part, “The petitioner had paid over N30m into the suspect’s account as a fee to get the licence.”

According to him, he transferred $4,285.071 to the United Bank of Africa account number 2107575870 in the name of one Jamiu Isiaka, an associate of Mr Shola Adeshina.

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

The EFCC said the suspect would soon be arraigned, while there were ongoing efforts to apprehend the accomplices at large.
