Fake Herbalist Sentenced To Jail For Fraud And Conspiracy
Lekan Arigbabuwo (pictured) was yesterday Friday July 1, 2016 sentenced to one year imprisonment in a case of conspiracy and stealing before Justice Lawal Akapo of Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja.
Arigbabuwo was arrested by the operatives of EFCC following a petition by one Ogundele Oluwatoba who claimed the convict stole and conspired to swindle him of N6.3 Million by posing as a herbalist. Arraigned on 3 counts charge, Lekan Arigbabuwo first pleaded not guilty, but later changed the plea to guilty under a plea bargain arrangement.We are still trying to find out what exactly the man needed the herbalist for that would involve almost parting ways with N6,3mn ,that's still a mystery to us.
