Recall the victim had earlier explained how he fell into their hand. He said he received a mobile phone line recharge pin from an unfamiliar phone number with a short note that reads “sell this recharge card for your transport fare home…” The event next to this was a call from the same line, telling him the SMS was sent to him in error and begging him to send it back to them.
Consequent upon the return of the SMS, he received another call from the line appreciating him for the good gesture. At the peak of their conversation, the old man on phone did as though he saw a vision concerning him. “He told me I am living with a deadly disease, but I said no. But when he convinced me further, I affirmed his word”, Wasiu said.
The victim, from whom a few other members of his family have also contracted the disease, deeply fell into them before discovering himself.
