"8.30am: A man is crying & screaming in Oregun, apparently he just came back from Spain & all the money he’s been sending to his people to build a house is no where to be found.
"He said he’s been gone for 15yrs and his mother & brothers have nothing to show him. People are in traffic & foot soldiers have gathered, I had to roll down to see what’s going on.
"I haven’t seen a man cry this much, he said he feels naked and empty. All his life savings gone, he sent them money to build his personal house and 4 flats so they can earn income."
Social media reactions
Ona Dara said:
"This is horrible. Sad that this still happens. Theres no way he could have imagined they would do this but due diligence doesn't hurt. Surprise check-ins and sending unrelated friends or contacts or a lawyer to check in would help."

The Dedunmola reacted:
"I understand people want to have something at 'home' but home can be anywhere you make home. People should buy properties where they live. This rip off happens every time and it's sad! After 15 years."
Double Kay added:
"A "must-have" conversation for japa folks, take leave & travel down for a suprise visit even if it's your pastor/imam that is handling your project(s) back home."
