Being led in evidence on Thursday by prosecution counsel, Hassan Tahir Esq, the witness said he gave the boy his bank account details where the sum of N500,000 was transferred in his favour.

“I asked him why he overpaid me, and he gave me an Opay account to send the balance of N210,000 back and he left my shop,” the witness said.
