Jibola Oderinde, a civil servant, has narrated how Jumia, an online market, held on to his N70, 284 after cancelling his order.

Oderinde told FIJ that on March 11, he ordered two wireless modules on Jumia but the site cancelled the order days after confirming it. Since then, Jumia has not refunded him.
