The family of the late Moses Adejumo, popularly known as Baba Sala, has warned unsuspecting members of the public against falling for the tricks of some fraudsters who have opened an online account for the funeral of the comedian.

The eldest son of the comedian, Rev’d Bamidele Adejumo, who spoke in an interview with one of our correspondents in Ilesa on Tuesday, said the family had not opened any account for the funeral of his father contrary to the claims of some fraudsters.
Bamidele, who is a cleric at the Love of Christ Chapel International Ministry in Lagos, said the family was embarrassed that some persons had opened a fake account and soliciting funds from unsuspecting members of the public.

He, however, warned members of the public against paying into this account, saying anybody who wanted to donate funds to the family should come to Ilesa where the family of the late comedian resided.

Bamidele 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.” _

Also, in a Facebook post by one of Adejumo’s sons, Emmanuel, he called on the public to ignore the plea, saying that the family knew nothing about it.
In the Facebook post shared by one Comedian Sala Baba Olajide, donors were referred to a paypal link where they would make their donations.

My Opinion:

This is Nigeria, you snooze you lose.  It is a big sign of something wrong with the system. People are incredibly poor and suffering having to watch their loved ones starve and die due to one illness or the othe. So crime rate is growing at an alarming rate in this country..  So sad.

The posts said, “Please support us with donations @ http://www.paypal.me/victola #BABASALA…”
