She further admitted that each of the victims paid half and were expected to pay the balance after receiving an appointment letter.

She stated that her goal was to gather money for business purposes and then reimburse the victims, and that she had no job offer from NECO or anyone else.

During the course of the investigation, over 50 individuals were alleged to have fallen victim to this act of employment swindling, totaling over ten million naira.
