Taking to his Instagram Story, the comedian, Bovi shared screenshots of their conversation which he said was suspicious from the onset.

As seen in the chat, the scammer who hacked his schoolmate’s IG account, sent a message with it, asking the comedian for an urgent N30,000 to sort the supposed medical bills of her ailing son.

In response, the actor told the person to send him a message on WhatsApp in hopes to prove that it was indeed his old schoolmate, but the person claimed he or she had an issue with his WhatsApp account.

After the scammer threw insults at the comedian, Bovi revealed that he has reported the scammer’s bank account and he would be arrested if he makes any attempt to go to the bank.

The 42-year-old comic actor then disclosed that his old schoolmate’s IG account was hacked by the scammer who had been using it to defraud unsuspecting people.
