Oloyede said, “We did not ask anyone to apply to be an ad-hoc staff on the site, we had already chosen them through recommendations from various agencies. We only created the site just to pay them via a code that was assigned to them”.
The registrar made it known that: “The payments ranged from N200, 000 to over N300, 000 per person”. Yet, these suspected fraudsters after gaining access to the websites also inserted details for their family members”. “They didn’t go to partake in the exercise but ignored the messages sent from our domain”.
However, following the arrest of about 10 of the suspects, Oloyede revealed that, “One of them, Saidu Zubairu collected over N3.7 million for himself because he inserted the account details of his mother, sisters, and other family members”. “We have not calculated all the monies they all have so far received but altogether, the amount will definitely sum up to more than N10 million”.
The registrar made it known that, “We have already paid the original owners, though it took us over a year to track the suspects, we finally apprehended them and I assure you the law will take its cause”.
