Yinka Quadri’s aide arrested for impersonating King Sunny Ade

Ace Nollywood actor, Yinka Quadri’s aide has been arrested for impersonating King Sunny Ade to defraud many.

The suspect was arrested alongside two others. Together they have defrauded many of millions after he opened fake Instagram and Twitter accounts with the handle @kingsunnyademusic to advertise a fake U.S and U.K musical tour.
The 27-year-old was arrested alongside his girlfriend, Rebecca Oyebode, 23, and his friend, Oyewunmi Abiodun Ridwan, 27.

The aide has allegedly absolved the actor of any complicity in the crime, as it was further gathered that he raked in millions by impersonating King Sunny Ade.

The veteran singer who reacted to report of the arrest said;

“People were always calling my number that they heard I was organising a tour. When it was getting too much for me, I had to call the police who helped me. People were thinking I was the one doing it, and I’ve never done anything like that in my life. I’m a law-abiding citizen of this country. I came to the CP and he promised to investigate.”

Oyedokun dropped out of Osun State College of Education, Ilesha, in his second year as an English and political science student and once ran a blog named Hip-hop Gist.
