The family of the late Moses Adejumo, popularly known as Baba Sala, has advised unwary members of the public against falling for the ruses of some fraudsters who have opened an online account for the funeral of the comedian.
The oldest son of the comedian, Rev’d Bamidele Adejumo said the family had not opened any account for the burial of his father contrary to the claims of some fraudsters.
Bamidele noted that the family was embarrassed that some persons had opened a fake account and asking funds from members of the public.
Speaking in a chat with Punch, he said: “We have not opened any PayPal account or any online account. The claim is false information. The family has not asked for anything from anybody. We have not met and nobody is soliciting anything from anybody yet. If we will be expecting anything from any fans, admirers or anybody at all, it will be freewill donation.
“We have not opened any PayPal site or any intent account for people to donate to. Anybody who wants to donate anything to the family should please come to the family in Ilesa. Such people can come with pressmen and take photographs to document it.
“They should have standard record and avoid fraudsters. They should avoid fraudsters, who are posing as members of the family.”
