The complainant according to reports, alleged that sometime in 2020 the defendant approached him with a business proposal for the supply of Diesel and Premium Motor Spirit (petrol) to a company known as Lee Group.

Ibrahim in the name of her company reportedly collected a sum of Thirty-Eight Million, Two Hundred Thousand Naira (N38, 200,000.00) from the complainant and his family members to execute the said business but diverted the money for her personal use.
