Oluremi expressed, "I met Adegoke on the web and he was professing to be minding and cherishing. Not long after, I got a call that he was engaged with a cruiser mishap and that he required cash for treatment. 

"The individual, who called me, happens to be Katayeyanjue, who claimed to be a cop from the Adigbe Police Station in Abeokuta, Ogun State. He disclosed to me that he checked Adegoke's telephone and found a number spared with 'My affection' and that the number ended up being mine." 

The police investigator, John Idoko, said Katayeyanjue plotted with others everywhere in June 2019 in Osogbo to carry out the wrongdoing. 

He clarified that the respondent got the whole of N1.2m from Oluremi on the appearance that he would spend it on the treatment of the mishap injured individual.
