According to him, Kabo along side three others whom she recruited as staff had so far collected a total of N897,500 from 108 victims.

“Investigation also revealed that she operated same kind of fraudulent business at Jega and Gwandu in Kebbi state in the name Olive Microfinance Bank and Easy Loan Microfinance Bank,” he said.
