Kaumi collected the sum of over N3m for the items and later N1m and other sums that the petitioner cannot remember.
He further added that shortly after some time, Kaumi finally requested the sum of N1.5m to be used in buying elephant tusk. The total amount he was duped by the convict total to the sum of N46,000,000.00 (Forty Six Thousand Naira) only.
