A Nigerian man identified as Tobechukwu has taken to social media to plead for assistance as his brother was taken into custody by Nigerian policemen in Oyo state today, June 7.

Tobechukwu claims that his brother received an unexpected N400,000 deposit in his account on June 6 and called his bank to inquire as he hadn’t expected that kind of money.

He claimed that although his brother requested a return from the bank, they refused to give him access to the account.

His brother later received a letter from the Force Criminal Investigation Department FCID Alagbon asking him to come for questioning.

He tweeted;


My brother just got picked up by a team of @PoliceNG from his office some minutes ago.

Apparently, he received a strange alert on his phone of N400,000 two days ago. He reported to his bank to know what happened & it should be returned, but no reasonable response was given.
The following day he got a letter to be at FCID Alagbon, which he went with his lawyer this morning.

They were told it is an ongoing investigation of a 10million naira stolen from the account of a kidnapped man by kidnappers.

The 10m was distributed to several other accounts; & unfortunately he is one of those picked up this afternoon by men of the @PoliceNG from Ibadan, Oyo state.

Another person is being picked from Agege too before heading to Ibadan.

I have got so many questions…

Where did the kidnappers get the account?

Aslo this is an account this is dormant. He doesn’t use the account.”
