Nigerian Actress Lola Alao’s New Husband Arrested For Credit Card Scam In Kuwait

August 30, 2013 – Yoruba Actress Lola Alao’s New Husband Arrested In Kuwait For Credit Card Scam “He’s A Fraudster” – Insiders

These are not the best times for Nollywood actress Lola Alao who recently got married to a Nigerian-American citizen named, Adewale Yakubu Ajibola.

Few weeks ago, Lola who is still legally married to her ex-hubby married Yakubu in Atlanta.

Unknown to her, the guy she married is a convicted fraudster.

According to E247 magazine, Yakubu was arrested for credit card fraud last year in Kuwait. He reportedly spent close to a year in prison.

Insiders claim this is not the first time the Nigerian-American big boy will get into trouble with the law.

Here is a detail report from E247

His claim to relevance and easy bait for unsuspecting women who wanted love and affection, has been his American citizenship’s status and his dashing looks, a reference to what in Yoruba parlance is called Faworaja, (meaning a person who lives off his looks). When he was arrested in Kuwait for the credit card scam, Yakubu, was able to answer the police questions adroitly, but the authorities were not convinced of his claim that he was innocent.

A ring of ‘scammers’ had some months before his arrival, operated in the same manner and went away with their loot in the Middle East commercial city. Unsuspectingly, Yakubu walked into a booby trap.  While Wale Yakubu Ajibola, the Nigerian-born American citizen served terms for one year,  the Big Sam turned the other cheek.

Lola, who is hell-bent on getting a husband, was not too lucky last year when her hatched plot to marry another Nigerian based in Europe was thwarted by her first husband, Dare Ogunlana,  who unleashed a media attack on her.  Meanwhile, Lola found a close ally in another actress, Bukky Wright, also married to a US-based Nigerian, Wale Onitilo.

Lola and Bukky seem to be best friends in real life because their chemistry comes through effortlessly.
Since her marriage to US-based lover and car dealer, Dare Ogunlana, broke up, the Kogi-born actress has met a few men but she has not been quite lucky to have one of them put a ring on it. Bukky, we reliably gathered has been concerned and busy setting Lola up on dates with non-famous friends and some buddies of her current hubby.

She wanted Lola to have her kind of relationship that will guarantee American citizenship status. When Yakubu walked in, it was a willing and desperate Lola he met and, trust her, she quickly hung on tight. Sources disclosed that while he was cooling his feet in the Kuwaiti authorities’ cell, Lola scampered for his release by consulting marabouts widely. They were constantly in touch on phone and gradually they  built the affection.

On release some months ago, after serving terms in Kuwait for one year, she sent him a ticket to come home, made few appearances at functions that were private  and  they bonded before he returned to the United States  to prepare for the August wedding.

While Lola has taken the highroad by walking down the aisle with Yakubu,  brimming with broad smiles that  she has found love and a good match, observers of Nollywood  marriages and the rate at which it dissolves, feel Lola may have finally found a big catch to perfect her plans for an American citizenship status.

Yakubu, has never been married but he has three kids, including a set of twins  from two women among his strings of ladies. From his profile, though he claimed to be an ICT expert, he is not quite buoyant financially and his recent incarceration in Kuwait has not helped.

There is no record of an apartment in his name; the newly married couple are guests in one of the hubby’s relations’ house in Atlanta.  Prior to his ill-fated venture in Kuwait, he is said to have been living off his relations in California before life threw terrible storms at him and he moved to Houston. In his bid to survive, he crossed to Atlanta where he allegedly joined the credit scam racket popularly known as ‘Track 1, Track 2’.

For Lola, it has been a tortuous and lonely journey with her 10-year- old daughter, Omowunmi from her first marriage with Dare. As she stepped out from the depths of despair to happily ever after, it is not clear if Dare will not sue her for bigamy as their marriage consummated in Nigeria has not been officially dissolved. Lola and Yakubu are expected in Nigeria soon.

    He’s a Yoruba man and what do we expect! Deception is what they do in American and European countries while the Nigeria media controlled by the Yorubas portray’s them as the most learned tribe in nigeria. Besides I haven’t heard of any degree qualification issued in prison, therefore they’re the most lazy and illiterate tribe in Nigeria.

      You sound so spiteful and point of correction – “illiterates tribe” poor grammar in the first place. An illiterate will not be able to read or write and to be a fraudster you must have good communication skills – not condoning this act but just feel like correcting an idiot like you. – stop your stupid blaming culture because it’s not only Yorubas please update yourself more. I live in Europe and current with news in US.

    Lola is a smart babe, knows what she’s doing,intending to use American guy and dump him after aquiring America citizen via him.
    But she should remember nemesis is hanging somewhere close to her and I hope this decision of hers won’t constitute problem for her in nearest future.
    But why can’t this so called celebrities live a decent lifestyle what emulating?

    He’s a Yoruba man and what do we expect! Deception is what they do in American and European countries while the Nigeria media controlled by the Yoruba’s portray them as the most learned tribe in nigeria. Besides I haven’t heard of any degree qualification issued in prison cos majority of them are languishing their. Therefore, they’re the most lazy, fraudsters and illiterates tribe in Nigeria.

      You don’t have to put tribe into this story; fraud is common among all tribes in the world. It was quite unfortunate for Lola to engage with wrong man. I am one of Lola and Bukky(OJ)fans. Who are you to judge the couple? Always think twice before you say or write on line.

        You are right Bam, crime and all sorts of fraud cuts across the Nigerian spectrum. Fraudsters are most common in the southern part of Nigeria than in the North. The lady, Lola deserves what she got. She eloped with another man leaving her husband in the dark and now look at the disgrace she brought to her self. She is a shameless slot. You now see why Nigeria woman are ranked as the most unfaithful in the world.

    Lola Alao is not only unfaithful and shameless to crown it all she is damn too ugly and fat. I think her jailbird husband wanted to use her as meal ticket before he got busted.

    Please let us stop blaming Lola. Like all celebrities around the world, women-celebrities always look for men who can uphold their life styles. Lola is a victim and I will not blame her. Yakubu Ajibola who wants to marry a celebrity because of fame must be blamed. He is a con artist and irresponsible man. I will still stand by Lola. Lola do not lose hope, with prayer, you will sail through your downs.

    In addition to my comments,Lola married to Dare Ogunlana in 2002. Now Dare blamed her for marring another man; although, we know that marriage is full of ups and downs, Lola would not be in this mess, if Dare did what is expected of him as husband to file for her staying in USA since the day they got married. What a distance-husband is Dare Ogunlana. No woman in the world would accept her husband to live overseas without her for these years. Dare,think about it and don’t blame your ex spouse as you’re the cause of what happened to Lola.
