Nollywood actress, Tayo Sobola a.k.a Sotayo-Gaga has accused co-actor, Saidi Balogun of introducing her to a guy who duped her and a few of her contacts.
On Instagram, Tayo revealed that the alleged scammer named Idris is nowhere to be found after scamming her followers with the pledge of helping them travel to Saudi Arabia for the hajj.
The movie star also said that Saidi Balogun has refused to pick her calls and respond to her texts so she has not been able to reach him to discuss how they can find the man.
She wrote, “WANTED!!!!! Months ago i was approached by @saidibalogun and @mustiphasholagbade to go on Hajj/mecca trip with them sponsored by this guy named IDRIS.
I was talked into becoming an ambassador for his company and i refused immediately. After much questioning from me to @saidibalogun and @mustiphasholagbade ,they assured me that they know him well and he’s not a scammer. Then i accepted the offer of going with them to Hajj. Now, i was sent a flier to post on my page which is suppose to be the proper procedure to be taken. Now, to cut all long stories this guy took money from some of my contacts and since then he has neither called anyone /picked up calls nor refunded the money he collected . He’s nowhere to be found.
Mr @saidibalogun i have been calling and messaging you in the last few months please and please , kindly provide this guy you claim to know. He needs to refund the money he took from my contacts . I have tried my best to keep this off the internet. This will be my first move on this, dont test my patience!!! Please help me repost this ooo!! Atleast if you cant provide him , maybe the internet will help me. His girlfriends page is @abolajilawal22 and she has also been claiming not to know his whereabout.”
We wait to see how this will pan out.
