Two elderly men have been reportedly nabbed for allegedly hypnotizing an innocent boy and collecting all the money he had on him.
The incident occurred at Abule Egba area of Lagos state where the victim was reportedly approached by the men claimed to be basketball players.
It would have been a stress-free and successful operation but the plan was foiled by some residents of the community who noticed the fishy act and rescued the victim from being robbed.
