Court orders fraudulent IG hair vendor, Mizwanneka to refund customer

An Ikeja Magistrate’s Court on Friday, ordered Nwanneka Nkumah, otherwise known as Mizwanneka, a human hair vendor, to refund N79,500, which she fraudulently obtained from her customer.

The magistrate, K.A. Ariyo ruled that Mizwanneka should pay back the money, which the claimant, Shenayon Saka, paid into her account for the purchase of two human hair wigs.

Ariyo also awarded a cost of N20,000 in favour of the claimant and 10 percent interest per annum on the judgement debt until final payment is made.

Earlier, the suit had been filed jointly by the claimant and the Lagos State Consumer Protection Agency, represented by the Principal State Counsel, C.S. Hunpe.

Ms Hunpe had earlier submitted a summons before the court for the recovery of the debt due to the claimant.

She alleged that the claimant sent the sum of N77,600 to the defendant for the purchase of two human hair wigs, following an online Christmas sales’ advert posted by her sometime in December 2019.

“The claimant also added the sum of N1,900 to the defendant in April 2020 after she admitted to have received the money earlier sent to her.

“All attempts made by the claimant to retrieve the money or the hair wig from the defendant proved abortive.

“The defendant was given the opportunity to defend her case in the court but for reasons best known to her, she had failed to do so,” Ms Hunpe said.
