The former P Square member took to Instagram to share his experience and provided a screenshot of their conversation.
A fake Instagram account of Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido sent Paul Okoye a DM claiming to be the former CBN Governor and an excited Paul replied and even sent him his number. The con man then called Paul asking him to help send 5 million naira to a friend as he was having issues with his online banking and this according to Paul was what gave him away
When he found out the person he was speaking to was a fake, he took to Instagram and wrote,
