The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Enugu is currently interrogating one Princess Benny Chidinma, Managing Director of a suspected Ponzi scheme, “Millionaire African leaders Club”, on allegations of providing financial services without statutory license. 

The branch coordinator, Nwonu Priscilla Chika, was apprehended two days earlier following a raid on the premises of the club at No. 79 Nike Road, Abakpa Nike, Enugu State as well as three newly recruited staffs of the organization.

Chidinma admitted that the Ponzi Scheme was initially registered as a Non-Governmental organization (NGO), and that she was running it with her accomplice, one Ken Onyekwere Okwuikpo who resides in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

She also disclosed that their offices are spread across Nsukka, Port Harcourt, Aba, Abakaliki and Enugu.

“Investigations are still ongoing, while efforts are being made to arrest other accomplices” the commission said.
