According to Sambo, ” The incident happened when I sent my 18-year-old boy Al-Amin with an ATM card to refuel my motorcycle at a filling station but met with Sadiq Sa’adu and Nura Adamu who deceived and tricked him into believing that they would assist him with prayers to increase the amount of money in the bank account.
