How Fake Sanusi Lamido Almost Scammed Paul Okoye
Online scam is real, and former one half of P-Square, Paul Okoye has felt its realness.
A fake Instagram account of the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido sent Paul Okoye a Direct Message claiming to be the former Governor of Nigeria's Apex bank, Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN).
An excited Paul replied and even sent him his number.
The conman then fell his hand by calling Paul and asking him to help send 5 million naira to a friend as he was having issues with his online banking.
This, according to Paul, was what gave his con away.
Paul Okoye took to his Instagram page to share the story and a screenshot of their direct messages.
