Brouhaha Over 'Striae'

According to Punch, 31 year old Abaigom was arrested by the police on Tuesday in Ikeja for allegedly damaging the skin of two of his customers – 19-year-old Ifeabunike Alexandra and Nikky Imoh, 21.




The complainants, who are friends, had engaged Abaigom’s service to remove the stretch marks on their skin, and apply other skin treatments.

The suspect charged Alexandra N166,000 while Imoh, who also wanted to get rid of dark spots on
her knuckles, was asked to pay N106,000.

The suspect had reportedly collected sums of N125,000 and N45,000 in advance from Alexandra and Imoh respectively, promising that they would see results shortly after the treatments.

Contrary to their expectation, it was gathered that the customers’ skin worsened, but Abaigom insisted on collecting the balance of his fees.

The friends, after failed attempts to get their money back, reported the case to the police at the Ikeja division, who arrested the suspect.

Alexandra told the police that Abaigom had presented himself on Facebook, through which she contacted him as a qualified beautician, adding that series of tools he displayed on the social media convinced her to seek his service.

She said, I called him (Abiagom) on the telephone and told him what I wanted with my skin, including exfoliation, polishing and stretch mark treatment. It was N166,000 altogether.

“I asked him when I would start seeing positive results and he said almost immediately. He requested 75 per cent of the payment and I gave him N125,000.


“After the first treatment on December 13, I started having reactions such as rashes, dark eyes and darker skin complexion. He did the treatments for my friend and me at a guesthouse despite claiming to have a shop. He didn’t do most of the treatments I paid for, but he wanted the N41,000 balance.”


Imoh stated that she thought she had found a professional in the suspect when Alexandra introduced him to her.


“I wanted to clear dark knuckles and have an even skin, which he said he could do. I paid him N45,000 for a start,” she added.


Abiagom, who admitted collecting the sums from the friends, however, said they were not patient.

A police prosecutor, Inspector Benedict Aigbokhan, brought the beautician before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court on two counts of obtaining money under false pretences.

The charge read in part,

That you, Henry Abiagom, on December 13, at about 2pm, at Quarters 36, Block 2, Oba Akinjobi Street, GRA, Ikeja, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did obtain the sum of N125,000 from one Ifeabunike Alexandra to work on her skin and beautify it, knowing same to be false, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 312 of the Criminal Law No 11, Vol. 44 Laws of Lagos State.”


The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge and was admitted to bail in the sum of N100,000 with one surety in like sum by the presiding magistrate, Mrs. O.A. Akokhia.

The 31-year-old beautician was remanded in the prison and could not perfect his bail conditions as of close of work on Friday.

The case was adjourned till February 20, 2016.

The quest for being light skinned though. Na WA!

The problem with bleaching is that the issues accompanied with it is never ending; so my honest opinion is don't start bleaching!

I don't know why people fall easily to fraudsters..
You should have insisted on meeting him in his office or shop. When he suggested a guesthouse, that's when the warning bells in your head should have sounded off, maybe it did, but you choose not to hear it.
With just less than 50k, I would have given you treatment for them dark knuckles,and you still get to keep your skin fair and supple.
And no, I'm no beautician.

Girls can do the most foolish things. First of all, what authentic beautician takes you to a guest house to perform a procedure? The man could so easily have killed or raped them there. Dumbass girls.

This is sad. When I'm here to clean them up with just quarter of that money or less. But all these fake beauticians won't allow people see trusted ones like us.
