“This is the face of the scammer that hacked into my brother @soundsultan Instagram account after his death. His Name is victor Majekodunmi, a young with great potential yet so evil and heartless.
He deleted a lot of his memories and chose to scam people by pretending to be @faridafasasi .
I’m happy to announce that we have taken control of the account and he is presently cooling off in police custody. Thanks to everybody that showed concerned and helped nab young, hardened criminal. @kay_spartan @rawfeecuh @patrick_ata @lilygreenroom @daluss_ @pulsenigeria247 @mufasatundeednut @instablog9ja @olorisupergal .
