Ebonyi State House of Assembly Lawmaker, Maria Ude Nwachi popularly known as ‘Afikpo Chic’, has come under heavy attack for reportedly defrauding members of the Igboist group, a group she’s an admin to on Facebook.
It was gathered that Maria Ude Nwachi who was suspended by the Ebonyi Assembly for allegedly reducing herself to a photographer, told members of the Igboist group that she was going to empower some people, and that over 1000.people are going to get financial empowerment. She reportedly got over 150,000 people participating in the lottery scheme and all paid between 1k,3k and 5k.
Sources claim that she rewarded her village youths, which 98% are mostly girls of 20 years with 1million naira, with almost #1billion contributed from the lottery.
Here’s a screenshot of chat with one of those coordinating the lottery with Maria Ude Nwachi.

Scam of the century!!!
You said you wanted to empower Igboist members, and that over 1000.people are going to get financial empowerment and you got over 150k people that participated in the lottery scheme and all paid between 1k,3k and 5k.
That alone is close to a billion naira. What did you do? You went ahead and rewarded few of your Village youths which 98% are mostly girls of 20 years 1million naira.
Mind you these few were less than 8 people anways.
About 40people got between 50k 20k and 10k.
None of these winners are on Facebook?
We can’t see them celebrating here!
All we get is lamentations!!
How is giving someone 20k,10k became empowerment?
What Biz and benefits can someone who paid 9k for all the 3caterories do or has with 10k?
This is scam, she was not transparent!
The scam was not well rehashed. The balloting lacked proper organisational skills. She is not a good thief! Quote me!!
You collected people’s money with out pasting the list of names of those that paid and will participate, no accountability on the actual sum your account in Zenith bank raked. People that participated dont even know they participated.
Bia Nwanne,that woman is on high drug.
See eeh! I have taken time to research about her. She does know what she is doing. Just few days,the contribution started,she bought a house in Maitama.
All she did was hush hush..gifting phones and laptops occasionally to these small girls and boys that work for her in her cycle. No real face oo!!!
I am even thinking based on her past living in the US whether these small girls and boys that are all over her are being pimped to her politician friends.

Here are screenshots of comments of those who have a history with the lawmaker, Maria Ude Nwachi;
However coordinators of the ‘Mula lottery’ have released a press statement following the fraud accusation. It reads;
IMC! MATTERS ARISING.
PROJECTED: The 150,000 participants used in IMC details explaining how IMC works is just projected. And it was made clear we will adjust the payout according to actual participants.
PUBLISHING NAMES: We could not publish the names of participants because only about 90% heed the directive to post the evidence in Payee thread. We had to go through bank statements to make sure that no name is left behind.
WEBSITE: IMC website will be ready this week. Everything will be automated to avoid any mishap. You will have your own board to see your information. It will all be automated. If you wish to take part you do, if not please don’t. Sustainability is everything. And this is sustainable.
ON WINNING: Not everyone will win, it was made clear from start. It is not possible. If you want to participate next time, make sure you understand that I could be you, and it might not be you.
HATERS! There are haters lying in wait to pounce of my person and Igboist. They have tried various means, blackmail, massive smear, fake smear documentary. lies upon lies, etc and it did not work, they now wanna lash onto this program, and use it to do their damage. But they are dealing with the wrong person because they cannot succeed. Let them keep trying but they won’t succeed. TO HATERS: It’s either you join a moving train, or you create your own train.
IGBOIST GROUP: Haters don’t know how we got where we are. They have no gut but they want the glory. It was through hard work, scarce resources and perseverance, since 2009, that got Igboist where we are today. It can only get better. And nothing you can do about it. AGAIN: It’s either you join a moving train, or you create your own train.
ON NOT WINNING: This is just like contribution top mop up capital to help ourselves up; derived from anyuko mmamiri onu, ya agbaa ufufu. People were made millionaires and mulaniares yesterday from your mostly 1,000 naira contributions. No one contributed one million but many emerged millionaires. If it was not your luck this time, it could be next time. Don’t give haters a bed to relax in and attack the platform and their hate targets. Be graceful. A win for your brethren is a win for you.
TO THE WINNERS: Biko use your money wisely, use it wisely. It is not easy. Many contributed but you were chosen. Be very careful with the money and make us proud by becoming very rich from the win. And if you won less than 100k, it is something, use it wisely too.
BONANZA: More winners will emerge, from those Bonanza posts. 3 million naira plus a percentage has been set aside for IMC January participants. Money will be given for business plans, cash, phones, and gift packages will be doled out. So you still have a chance to win. We will start that this week.
THE LIST: At 3 PM today, the list of winners will be published plus other details. Remember we are publishing the names used in the account used in paying. It will be posted on Igboist and Igboist Extra.
Thank you all, GREAT IGBOIST.
