NSCDC state commandant, Olatunde Fayemi, made this known while parading the suspect alongside six other suspected criminals on Monday in Ado-Ekiti.
Osun Defender gathered that Folasade, who was an employee of the orphanage home, collected the money on behalf of the centre without the knowledge of the management.
