I’ve been assured by the police of the full recovery of my money, which I could have received today if not for my busy schedule. The officers involved have also been remanded @PoliceNG_CRU
Thanks to the entire tech community for reaching out. I do not take your positive response and feedbacks for granted. 🙏🙏💻💻📡
