This development infuriated the couple, who arrested him and gave him an ultimatum to refund the money they paid him. Oluwanishola wrote:

"I apologize to this person for sharing his experience here but I think I want others too to learn.

"The couples had arrested him and has been given the ultimatum of Wednesday to refund them. So he approached me to lend him the sum of N450,000.
"I have told him I don’t have that kind of money to borrow him.
