A Nigerian Twitter user by the name Pablo Ayodeji (@PabloAyodeji) has owned up to swindling scores of unsuspecting users on the micro blogging platform, barely a few hours after his infamous vocation was brought to light in ignominy.
His admittance comes on the back of an outrage on social media that beams the spotlight on how unscrupulous elements have been taking advantage of people’s generosity to perpetrate Machiavellian skullduggery.

Trouble started on Monday morning after a Twitter user @nuellaa_ag tweeted that ‘she’ had recently lost her job and sought for financial help.
Guys do you remember Pablo Ayodeji? The guy that made #5KBae to trend is back again in a messy scam allegation. Apparently the guy is dirty. Match the bank account number in both pictures. If u need money why not beg through ur real twitter account instead of via a dummy account? pic.twitter.com/ABTTUhzVgM

Minutes after tweeting, the appeal got the necessary attention as it garnered numerous retweets, prompting many users to request for the bank account ‘she’ provided in order to transfer what they can afford.
Suddenly, a very curious user observed that something was not right and quickly raised the alarm.
It turned out that the handle has had a pattern of requesting for financial support using different screen names online and a history of pleading for money using different stories.
To further buttress these claims, the Wema Bank account information provided by @nuellaa_ag actually matched the name of ‘Adeniji Olaoluwa Ayodeji’, @PabloAyodeji.
This is not the first time that Pablo will be on the news as he had once provided the account details when he had a spat with a lady after a date went all wrong in March 2017.
I would like to offer my sincere apologies to Oldapo and his sister Adeola for dragging them into this mess . They legit had no idea and they shouldn’t be blamed in anyway . I take full responsibility for everything

After initially denying being a con artist, Pablo subsequently admitted to being one following the outrage that was meted out on him on social media, coupled with threats of both physical and legal backlash against him.
“So I take responsibility for scamming people on the TL. Nothing I say will justify what i did. But mans was really broke and that seemed like my last resort. I’ll still be dealt with so this is not a get out jail card,” he tweeted.
Despite his apology, some Twitter users still vented their anger on him.

Going through that Pablo’s TL this evening, I now fully believe that voodoo is real, village people are real and they can turn someone’s head upside down. May God have mercy on us all
