He said they bought goods worth millions of naira with fake alerts they generated with an application on their phone.

The suspect said the last transaction he did which exposed him was about N185,000 for which he generated a fake alert for a POS operator in Ibadan.

He said, “I cannot lie again. It is true we are doing the business. We have an application we use to generate fake alerts for POS operators. I am not the only one doing it.
