The convict’s journey to the Correctional Centre began when he impersonated one Fatima Bature Jikan Dan Uwa, founder and Chief Executive Officer, of a non-governmental organisation, “Youth Against Drug Abuse”, through a forged WhatsApp page to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
Yusuf opened the WhatsApp page in the name of Fatima Bature Jikan Dan Uwa and her picture and began soliciting for medical assistance for a purported cancer patient due for surgery at Federal Medical Centre, Nguru, Yobe State, and attached his bank account details for receiving donations without the knowledge and consent of Uwa.
