The family of the late veteran Nigerian actor and comedian, Moses Adejumo, popularly known as Baba Sala, has warned unsuspecting members of the public against falling for the tricks of some fraudsters who have opened an online account for the funeral of the comedian. In the Facebook post shared by one Comedian Sala Baba Olajide, donors were referred to a PayPal link where they would make their donations.
However, one of Adejumo’s sons, Emmanuel, called on the public to ignore the plea. Emmanuel said in a Facebook post,
“It has come to the knowledge of the Adejumo family that someone has posted that the family needs assistance, therefore, people should be donating into a PayPal account. This is a scam ooooo, big scam. Please kindly ignore this, it’s not from the family. Please do not honour it.”
Baba Sala, 82, died in his sleep on Sunday night after taking his supper.
