A young Nigeria man that drank insecticide in an attempt to take his own life over the problem of non-resumption of the Ponzi scheme, MMM has finally given up the ghost.
The young man, simply known as Adakole, passed on Monday 20th February evening around Kubwa in Bwari Area Council of Abuja.
The Nigerian government had constantly warned citizens against investing in the Ponzi scheme.
Reports indicate that the deceased, who was about to wed last December drank insecticide following the alleged crash of the Ponzi scheme, Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox, otherwise famously known as MMM.
A family source, who did not want her name mentioned, said that Adakole passed away after suffering from stomach complications as a result of the poison he took last year.
“Yes, he died this evening. His body has been deposited at the mortuary as we speak,” the source said.
Asked if he was able to get his money back since the scheme had returned, the source said all his efforts to get the money back had been fruitless.
“No, he was not paid. In fact, he threatened to arrest his Guider before the stomach upset returned last week and we rushed him to the hospital where he finally died. I don’t even think MMM is back, if not Adakole would have been the first they would consider. We attempted to reach them to recover Adakole’s money but they kept telling us to provide help to get help; obviously, the scheme has crashed,” he added.
When the press arrived the deceased’s family house in Dutse, his fiancée identified simply as Chennai was seen crying uncontrollably alongside other family members.
Every attempt to speak with her could not yield any result as she was not ready to talk to the press.
It was also learnt that their wedding had been rescheduled for May before his demise on Monday.
It should be recalled that the MMM recently released a statement titled: ‘МММ Nigeria is coming back to normal’, asking the participants to forget their investments for 2016 and commence a new investment.
This means that the jubilation that greeted the reopening of the scheme in January 2017 may have been cut short and many students who invested their money in the scheme, as well as those who borrowed money in the hope of making 30 percent profit are now stranded.
