Prostitute steals ‘customer’s’ ATM card, clears account

 

A 24-year-old commercial sex worker, popularly known as ‘Ashewo‘, Imoleayo Bamigboye,
has been arrested by operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the
Lagos State Police Command for allegedly stealing an ATM card belonging
to her customer, Musa Alli, and withdrawing the sum of N300,000 from his account.

The
mother-of-one, it was gathered, was arrested at a club house in
Surulere area of the state alongside another of her boyfriend, Adeyinka Ayodele, and two others who aided her in the crime.
The
victim who reported the theft to the RRS operatives, said he met
Bamigboye at the club on Friday, September 30, 2016, adding that she stole his ATM card before memorizing his PIN, during an online transfer of funds into his friend’s account.
He said that he was shocked on Saturday afternoon when he received alerts amounting to N90, 000 withdrawals at a go.
“While
I was still contemplating on how to deal with the issue, I got another
debit alert for buying two Infinix phones totaling N84, 000.
I
was confused and shocked. I didn’t know what action to take on a
Saturday evening. On Sunday, there was another debit. I couldn’t pin the
crime to the lady I met at the club. I lodged a complaint on Monday
morning at my bank.
It was unbelievable for me when I was face to face with the suspect, the lady I met at the club.”
Confessing
to stealing the card, the prostitute said she stole the ATM card when
Alli slept off and after that, she memorized his PIN when he was sending
money to his colleague via a mobile app.
“I
intended to only withdraw N20k, however, when I withdrew the money, and
checked the account balance, I was shocked to see his balance.
Afterward, I withdrew another N70k.
Then, the following day, I called my boyfriend, who instructed me to come straight to Itori, Ogun State.
On getting to him, he called two of his friends, Abimbola Akintanna and Owolabi Bamidele, to use the ATM at any nearest bank.”

“The
following day, we went straight to Abeokuta to use the card. We bought
two android phones for N84k. We proceeded to a boutique and bought
clothes worth N126k. I recharged my phone with another N2.5k.”
