Must Read-- See What Happened To The Duo Invited To Asaba By Their Facebook Friends
No doubts, the Internet has been of great advantage since its emergence, but Oleshade Akugbade and Olayinka Alake have an entirely different story as they have experienced the ugly side of the web.
According to Vanguard, Oleshade Akugbade and Olayinka Alake, who are residents of Ibadan in Oyo State, were invited to Asaba, Delta state, on June 28 at about 9.35am by their friends, Daniel Fredrick, Nze Emeka and Kingsley Nwalibut, whom they met on Facebook.
The victims, on their arrival were robbed off their personal effects, including bags containing their clothes, by their friends, whom they were reportedly intended to see in the state.
Although the Delta State Police Command have arrested three persons in Asaba for allegedly robbing two persons they lured from Oyo State to Asaba, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, PRO, Celestina Kalu, confirmed the development, saying that all the stolen properties have been recovered and the three men, who lured them to Asaba, have been arrested. The PRO added that the suspects would be punished accordingly.
In a parallel development, the Delta state Police command’s PRO made it known to the general public that a reporter’s mail has been hacked by fraudsters. The reporter who is the Sapele Correspondent of Vanguard newspaper, Mr Godwin Oghre, has however warned the public to ignore any mail gotten from firstname.lastname@example.org, saying the fraudsters are using it to ask for favour and also to get personal information from unsuspecting people. Oghre however warned the general public to take note of the new development. It would be recalled that three kidnappers were killed and three others arrested in gun battle in Delta recently.
