A soldier, identified as only as Williams, has been accused by a Point- of- Sale operator identified as Samuel Ayodele of defrauding him of N100, 000 in the Ketu area of Lagos State.

It was gathered that On October 26, 2021, the soldier had drove a black Hilux to Ayodele’ s shop and requested for the operator’ s account number to carry out a cash withdrawal transaction of N100, 000 and Ayodele gave him his account number.

The soldier, after receiving the account number, reportedly showed Ayodele that the sum of N100, 000 had been debited from his bank account but the operator said he did not receive a credit alert from his own bank.

It was gathered that the soldier became furious and suggested that they both should exchange contacts so Ayodele could reach him if the transaction was not successful.


The 32- year- old Point- of- Sale operator was said to have given the soldier the sum of N100, 000 after exchanging contacts.

I Could Not Believe That A High Ranking Soldier Who Drove A Very Good Car Would Defraud Me- Ayodele Laments

The 32- year- old businessman, while narrating what happened to newsmen, said that he could not believe that a high ranking military officer that drove a good car could defraud him of his money.

Ayodele said when he waited for several hours and still did not receive a credit alert he had to call the soldier’ s phone number but he did not take his calls.

He later returned the call and when the operator told him that he had yet to receive the alert, the soldier asked if it was because of N100, 000 that the operator was calling him to disturb him knowing fully well the type of person he was.


Ayodele said the soldier promised to come to his shop the following day to rectify everything but did not show up, adding that at some point the soldier’ s phone number stopped going through and the soldier never showed up in his shop again.

Ayodele Makes Moves To Recover His Money From The Fraudulent Military Officer

The 32- year- old indigene of Oyo State said that after some days and and the soldier did not still show up, he decided to make some extra moves in a bid to get back his money by visiting the army barracks at Odogunyan and Ikorodu areas of Lagos to report the case to the military authorities.

The 32- year- old said, ” When his number was no longer going through, I asked a friend to call the number and it also didn’ t go through. But the name that came out on Truecaller was Williams Unit Commander. It also brought out pictures of two people in army uniforms. ‘ ‘

Ayodele further narrated that when he checked out the soldier’ s contact on WhatsApp, he saw a picture of a man wearing the uniform of the Nigerian Army and it was the same man who came to his shop to make a withdrawal of N100, 000 and generated an alert that did not reflect in his bank account.


Ayodele said since the soldier told him that he was coming from the Ikorodu, he decided to visit Ikorodu army barracks to check if he can see the soldier and get back his money.

He said when he got to the Ikorodu barracks, he proceeded to the intelligence department and met a soldier, identified as Ajino, and he explained his situation to him and even showed him the photograph of the suspect but Ajino told him that there was no soldier with such rank in the barracks.

Ayodele Urged The Army Authorities To Arrest The Soldier And Save Other Prospective Victims

Following his visit to the Ikorodu barracks and the information he got that there was no soldier with such rank in the barracks, Ayodele said, the officer Ajino, advised him to go to the Ikeja Military Cantonment and also gave him a number call when he gets there.

The devastated Point- of- Sale operator said that when he got to the Ikeja Military Cantonment, he called a the number he was given and a soldier, identified as Barrister Obi, who works in the intelligence department picked up and he started explaining his ordeals to him.

Ayodele said as he was explaining, the soldier interjected and asked him if it was a soldier who drove a black Hilux and he said yes.


Obi told him that they had been looking for the soldier as he had defrauded several people in the state already as the many reports of his activities had been received at the Cantonment.

Ayodele, while lamenting the loss his business has suffered following the incident, also urged the military authorities to arrest the suspect to save other prospective victims from passing through what he is currently going through.

However, efforts to reach the soldier and hear his side of the story proved abortive as he did not respond to calls send to his mobile phone ad had yet to reply text messages sent to him concerning the incident as at the time of filing this report.

Meanwhile, when the spokesperson for the 81 Division, Nigerian Army, Olaniyi Osoba, was contacted to get his reaction on the incident, he advised the victim to make an official report of the incident to the Military Police for proper investigation.

Osoba said, ” The PoS operator should go and make an official complaint to the military police at the Ikeja Cantonment so the matter could be investigated. “
