The trending whatsapp scam which was isntituted by desperate lawyers to blackmail the candidacy of Paul Usoro SAN in the next Nigerian Bar Association election has met another dead end after it was discovered that the whole conversation was a scam.
Nichola Aladejana who the scammers stole his identity and portrayed him as the person who was arranging the payment of Practicing fees for lawyers in exchange for votes has issued a disclaimer disassociating himself from the poorly delivered scam. His disclaimer is published verbatim below.
SEQUEL TO A POST FLYING AROUND SOCIAL MEDIA IN MY NAME ABOUT BAR PRACTICING FEE BEING PAID FOR LAWYERS BY A LADY FOR PAUL USORO SAN IN CAMPAIGN FOR NBA PRESIDENCY, PLEASE IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THIS BROADCAST WAS NOT COMPOSED BY ME AND NEITHER WAS IT POSTED BY ME. I WAS ALERTED BY CALLS ASKING ABOUT THE PAYMENT AND I WAS SURPRISED. THE REBROADCAST OF THE POST WAS MADE BY PEOPLE I DO NOT KNOW.
I HAVE NEVER MET THE SAN PAUL USORO BEFORE, NEITHER DO I HAVE ANY CANDIDATE FOR THE UPCOMING ELECTION AND NEITHER HAVE I EVER VOTED NOR HAVE A ROLL NUMBER YET, I HAVE NOT REGISTERED IN ANY NBA BRANCH YET SO WHAT INTEREST WOULD I HAVE IN NBA ELECTIONS!?
PLEASE DO NOT COUNTENANCE THAT POST AND PLEASE HELP FORWARD THIS DISCLAIMER TO ALL THE NETWORKS YOU BELONG TO.
LONG LIVE THE NIGERIAN BAR.
