December 28, 2016 – Fake Skin Care Agent Sent To Kirikiri For Damaging Clients Skin
The hope of a beauty therapist, Henry Abaigom, to rake in money from customers during the Yuletide has been dashed after he was sent to Kirikiri prison.
The 31-year-old beautician was remanded in the prison by an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court and could not perfect his bail conditions as of close of work on Friday.
Abaigom was arrested by the police on Tuesday in Ikeja for allegedly damaging the skin of two of his customers – 19-year-old Ifeabunike Alexandra and Nikky Imoh, 21.
The complainants, who are friends, had engaged Abaigom’s service to remove the stretch marks on their skin, and apply other skin treatments.
We learnt that the suspect charged Alexandra N166,000 while Imoh, who also wanted to get rid of dark spots on her knuckles, was asked to pay N106,000.
The suspect had reportedly collected sums of N125,000 and N45,000 in advance from Alexandra and Imoh respectively, promising that they would see results shortly after the treatments.
Contrary to their expectation, it was gathered that the customers’ skin worsened, but Abaigom insisted on collecting the balance of his fees.
The friends, after failed attempts to get their money back, reported the case to the police at the Ikeja division, who arrested the suspect.
