It was gathered that Ibrahim was shocked to receive a debit alert of N660,000 – few hours after his supposed friend left his house.

He rushed to the bank to freeze the account and block the ATM card before reporting the issue to the police.

The police swung into action and discovered that Emmanuel, his friend was behind the shady withdrawal.

It was learnt that the suspect had uploaded pictures of himself grooving on Facebook and also flaunted wads of cash online.
