A Nigerian man, identified as Adeleke583, on microblogging platform X, has revealed that he mistakenly transferred the sum of ₦500,000 to the Wema Bank account of David Adeleke, better known as Davido.
He wrote on his page that he intended to transfer money to a friend but sent it to the wrong bank account because the names were similar.
He, however, pleaded with members of the public to help him find a way to get back his money.
His statement: “Good day sir, Mr. David Adeleke @davido, I want to bring to your attention an issue. Please, I would like you to consider helping me.”
“I mistakenly sent #500,000 naira to your Wema Bank account with this account number: 0123044967. This was supposed to be sent to a friend of mine who also goes by the name David Adeleke.”
In reaction to the mistake made by the man, concerned individuals have stormed the comment page of the post to share their opinions on the matter.
