Ajayi Oluwabukola Temitope, a socialite located in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, has been detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly defrauding two companies of N25 million.

The companies are claimed to be in Sokoto, Nigeria’s northern state.

The suspect failed to furnish carbonated drinks to the companies despite receiving N25 million from them, according to the EFFC.

The EFCC’s Ibadan Zonal Command arrested Ajayi after receiving a petition from the companies.

Wilson Uwajaren, spokesperson for EFCC disclosed said, “The 42-year-old Ibadan socialite was arrested following a series of petitions in which the suspect, who claims to be a registered dealer with soft drinks manufacturers in Ibadan, Oyo State, promised to supply products to the complainants but failed after collecting money from them.

“In one of the petitions, Ajayi promised to supply a truckload of carbonated soft drinks worth N17, 375,000 (Seventeen Million, Three Hundred and Seventy-Five Thousand Naira Only) from Ibadan to Mabera Trading Company and Altine Musa in Sokoto but failed to do so.

“In the same vein, she also allegedly promised to supply soft drinks worth N7, 580,000 (Seven Million Five Hundred and Eighty Thousand Naira) to one Bashiru Musa, a businessman based in Sokoto and Ibadan but never did.”

Uwujaren said Ajayi said the suspect will be charged once an investigation into the case has been concluded.
