Police in Lagos have arrested a 33-year-old man, Babatunde Olaogun, for allegedly sending fake bank alert to his customer after buying 25 laptops worth N4.5 million. It was learnt that after buying the laptops, Olaogun promised to pay within two weeks but refused to pay.

He, however, sent fake bank alert, otherwise called magic alert, to the seller. Police said the suspect was arrested and arraigned sometime last year when he allegedly used the office of Lagos State governor to defraud a car dealer.

Olaogun, who was paraded yesterday at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters, Ikeja, owned up to the crime. He said: “When I bought the laptops, I resold them to someone else but the person did not pay me on time.

“When I could not pay on time, I pleaded with the person who supplied me the goods to give me more time. But when the pressure became unbearable for me, I decided to send the fake bank alert to him so as to have peace. “I copied bank alert already sent to me by my customers and sent to the supplier. I edited the alert on my phone to N2.5 million and sent it to person who supplied me.

I also promised that I would pay the balance later. “Thereafter, I went to his shop to show him the alert which I sent to him so as to give him the assurance that the money was actually sent to him. When I sent the alert to him, I did not entertain any fear.”

Olaogun was said to have lied to the car dealer that the state government needed a supply of three Honda Accord vehicles. The suspect admitted that he facilitated the vehicles supplied to the office of the governor because of his relationship with the car dealer, saying that two of the vehicles were intercepted before getting to Alausa.

Initially was not afraid, but known I regret my action, because I don’t intend to defraud my friend that supplied the laptops to me because we were friends. “The graduate of Lagos State University who was arrested on May 5, 2017 at his office at Balogun market, Ikeja claimed it was greed that pushed him into the fraudulent act, because it was late before he knew nothing good would come of out of the fraudulent act.”

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni who paraded the suspect yesterday at the command headquarters, Ikeja said, The suspect would go into shops and buy good worth millions of naira and instead of him to pay, he would send fake bank alert to the person that supplied him the goods on credit.

Owoseni, however said, before the suspect was arrested he had gone to computer shop where he bought 25 laptops and then send fake bank alert to the person who sold the goods to him. “When the person now went to bank to collect the money, it was there the person would discovered that what they send to him or her is fake bank alert.

He also generate fake bank Statement to deceived suppliers five million naira and a Toyota Corolla was recovered from him.” The police boos said, the suspect would be charge to court after completion of the investigations.

The heart of man is desperately evil. Who can know it? But every evil act has a day of reckoning. His own has come, others' will soon come.
