He attempted to obtain the sum of N300,000 (Three Hundred Thousand Naira ) from a Professor of Economics at Bayero University Kano, Dalhatu Mohammed Galadanci.

According to the complainant, sometime in July 2016, the defendant sent him a text message claiming to be Femi Adesina, and asked the professor to forward the sum to him for appointment to Nigeria Port Authority or Nigerian Railway Cooperation and Rural Electrification. At that point, the professor got suspicious and reported the matter to the commission.
