Blind Man Swindled Of N1.5m By Lover Cries In Court
49-year old blind Bamidele Adebayo came into the court room thinking he would finally get justice, but was disappointed.
Bamidele could not hold back tears when he was narrating how his 29-year old lover, Amina Aga took advantage of his blindness, used his bank ATM card and stole 1.5million Naira he had in the account at the Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
Bounce News gathered that the Ogun State-born Adebayo met Amina after Amina's family members sold their family house in Itire.
“She met me and told me that she will assist me to get drugs that will cure my blindness and I will see again and then, she will marry me and take good care of me and I trusted her and she started living with me” he narrated.
Adebayo said Plateau State-born Amina who was living with him, took his ATM card and started withdrawing money from his account to procure her travel documents to travel abroad.
He said he did not know that was her plan until he was informed by his neighbours who knew what she was planning.
He said that it was neighbours that helped him to arrest her and was taken to the police at Ejigbo where she admitted that to crime.
Amina was said to have confessed at the police station that she had wanted to use the money to travel abroad where she will hustle and then add more money to buy drugs that will cure Adebayo’s blindness.
Adebayo pleaded with the court to ask Amina to return his money to enable him feed as he cannot work because of his plight.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs J.O.E. Adeyemi adjourned the matter till 28th of August 2017.
Bounce News had earlier reported how it was not only Amina that took advantage of Adebayo’s predicament to swindle him, another lady identified as Rose who is currently at large, also duped him of 1.2million Naira.
