This MMM thing is going to expose the level of poverty in Nigeria today. Many people are in some sort of financial mess, such that they can hardly survive without these schemes.
A soon-to-wed man identified as Adakole is currently between life and death after allegedly taking insecticide following the alleged crash of Ponzi scheme, MMM, today.
The incident happened in Otukpo, Benue State, after promoters and participants were thrown into confusion on Tuesday as the scheme said they are suspending operation.
Adakole, a native of Okpe in Okpokwu area of Benue State whose wedding is slated for December 28 had invested 300 thousand into the scheme last month and was expecting to get some interest to help finance his wedding.
An eyewitness told Daily Post that when the news broke out Tuesday morning, Adakole, who was introduced into the scheme by someone literally went mad.
“Kole is my childhood friend, we all grew up in Ugbokolo but when he traveled to Abuja to meet with the pastor of his fiancée, he said someone introduced him into the MMM thing but I and his babe warned him but he told us the scheme was not a scam.
“This early morning, he called me to check the internet if the story of the alleged crashed of the scheme was true, I told him so I heard and he screamed and hung up.
“When I heard him, I knew it was no longer funny, so I had to rush to his house around Sabon Gari to discover that he had taken Raid insecticide. I had to call the fiancée to inform her.
“I had to take him to the clinic where he is currently battling for his life. The babe is already on her way from Abuja,” he added.
