The chats showed how the lady sought his financial aid, lamenting that she drank only water the night before.

The lady, who claimed to be a Muslim and has a daughter, said she was doing the Ramadan fasting with no hope for food to break the fast with.

Touched, Abdulsalam requested her account details and mistakenly sent N500k instead of N50k. He quickly notified the lady of the error and forwarded her his account details for a refund but she already blocked him.

"...May Allah forgive her and me too. I’ve reported the transaction on my Kuda and my bro that works in UBA already asked for her details, hopefully we get positive outcome," Abdulsalam wrote.

"You didn't have to mention your bro works in UBA and willing to help, because you are suppose to get an affidavit in court before banks can help you retrieve your money, so whatever he will be doing is not legal, so you don't put his job on the line."
