A 32-year-old woman, Mrs Damilola Ojo, who allegedly paraded herself as a medical doctor and has been treating patients for infertility has been arrested by the Oyo State Police Command, according to reports by Tribune.
Also arrested were suspects connected with various cases of kidnap, with one of the victims killed before his family members could pay the ransom demanded by his kidnappers.
Not only that, Mrs Ojo, was also reported to have introduced oil and gas business to two of her victims and had collected N23.35 million from them, only for the victims to discover that no such business existed.
Parading the suspects on Tuesday at the police headquarters, Elelyele, Ibadan, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Leye Oyebade, said that Mrs Ojo, who claimed to be a dropout from Baptist Medical School, Saki, collected over N200,000 from one Mrs Funke (surname withheld) and her husband for infertility treatment.
“As if that was not enough, the impostor fraudulently collected N1.35 million from her female victim under the pretext of registering her as a major distributor in the oil and gas sector.”
The police commissioner said that the suspect had connived with some fake oil and gas merchants to dupe many unsuspecting victims, including one Mr Caleb (surname withheld) from whom she collected N22 million.
