This Woman Impersonates Fashola's Wife; Dupes Government

  Mrs. Asogbon Abosede, a 53-year-old primary school teacher, has been arraigned at the Ikeja Magistrate’s Court for allegedly impersonating the wives of Lagos and Osun states governors and defrauding officials of the Lagos State Government.

Abosede, a Grade 10 teacher, was said to have committed the crime between June and July 2013 through text messages in which she claimed to be Mrs. Abimbola Fashola and Mrs. Sherifat Aregbesola.

The accused allegedly influenced her redeployment from a primary school in Alimosho area of the state to the Lagos State Basic Education Board by sending text messages to the Chairman of SUBEB, presenting herself as Fashola and later as Aregbesola.

The request was said to have been granted as she was redeployed soon afterwards.

The police also said among the sins of the accused was that she sent more text messages to the Chairman of Agbado/Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area, and the Education Secretary of Alimosho, as Fashola, demanding Ramadan gifts.

The LCDA chairman, in response to the SMS, was said to have sent N100,000, while Education Secretary, sent three BlackBerry phones valued at N105,000.
