Police Arrests Yinka Quadri’s P.A Who Defrauds People With King Sunny Ade's Name

Legendary Juju musician, Dr Sunday Adeniyi Adegeye, aka, King Sunny Ade has praised the Nigerian Police for an excellent delivery of duty after special intelligence officers at the Lagos State Police Command busted a fraudster operating in his name.

According to the report published by NewsmakersNG, The veteran Singer said the fraudsters had deprived him of his peace of mind as their victims kept disturbing him with phone calls all day and night thinking he was the one behind Instagram and Twitter accounts opened in his name to defraud close to 100 people.

Three suspects apprehended by the operatives were found to have opened the Instagram and Twitter accounts in the name kingsunnyademusic to advertise a fake USA/UK Musical tour that fetched them millions of naira.

Sunny Ade explained, “People were always calling my number that they heard I was organizing a tour. When it was getting too much for me, I had to call the police who helped me. People were thinking I was the one doing it, and I’ve never done anything like that in my life. I’m a law-abiding citizen of this country. I came to the CP and he promised to investigate.”

The prime suspect was identified as 27-year-old Oluwafemi Lawrence Oyedokun, who is the Personal Assistant on Social Media and Publicity to a Nigerian actor and film-maker, Alhaji Yinka Quadri.

He has, however, absolved Quadri of any complicity in the crime when he was quizzed at the Special Investigations Bureau (SIB), at Lagos State Command Headquarters, Ikeja.
