Investigation revealed that the suspect has lost the franchise since 2015 but acted in disguise by leasing out the filling station on 10th March 2016. Musliu Oseni initially took the sum of ₦1.5 million but later refunded the victim a sum of ₦600,000 and relocated out of Ondo State.

The Ondo State Commandant stressed that the three-man fraudulent syndicate; Oluwaseun Toyin, female aged 32years, Quazeem Ismail, male aged 40years and Tosin Michael, female aged 26years were arrested at No 4 Oke Uro Street, Irese town in Ifedore local government area of Ondo State.

Information deduced from the statement volunteered by the suspects revealed that Oluwaseun Toyin conspired with her husband Ismail Quazeem and her sister Tosin Michael as they both disguised with Hijab and claimed to be converted Muslims while defrauding a good number of Islamic religious leaders and the Ondo State muslim welfare Board.

According to the prime suspect; Oluwaseun Toyin who pretentiously gave her name as Silifat and at another time called her self Zainab having obtained money fraudulently from the victims on the ground that she and her sister got converted to Islamic religion in Lagos State and escaped from their Parents to Ondo State due to stern resistance and persecution.

Consequently, the younger sister changed her name to Sadiat while Ismail Quazeem conveys the duo to various Mosques with his motorcycle demanding for money to the tune of ₦200,000 at different occasions.

He advised the Public to be wary of illegal Oil dealers and fraudulent persons who piously beg for arms stating that “the need to be conscious so as to forestall any form of security threats in our environment cannot be undermined”.
