He said only one of them stepped into the shop to negotiate for the doors, while the other two remained outside.
“They were three matured men of about 40 years and above. They came in white Sienna and bought four doors. Two turkey doors (N165, 000 and N95, 000 each), one glass door (N200, 000) and one Watson door (N37, 000).
“I was on my way to Onitsha. My brother and sales rep were here, but I was the one who transacted the business on phone.
“They told them they were going to Agbarho, just inside the town. I didn’t have the size of the glass door, so I told them I will have it the following day. So they took only the three doors available with a promise to come back for the other.
“They even refused to collect receipt after paying the money. My people counted the money, N1000 notes. They said they counted N500, 000.
“But it wasn’t up to five minutes after the men left with the doors loaded in the Sienna, they decided to keep the cash properly, that was when they discovered the notes were blank sheets of paper. They showed me the bank money band that came with the money too,” Maduka recounted.
