On Monday, September 13 a man Godfrey Owino reported Kioko had received sh 344,000 ( GH¢18,873.09 ) from him while pretending to be a lady supposed to take a flight from Coastal Kilifi County to Siaya for a date.

“The 31-year-old allegedly received the money via ‘MOMO’ from Godfrey Owino who he says they had planned for “her” to travel from Kilifi to Siaya county,” a report read in part.

Mr. Owino revealed that the cash was supposed to cover a two-way flight ticket but the con man made away with the cash after switching off.
