Nigerian lawmakers call for the arrest of 'MMM' promoters in the country | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The House of Representatives on Wednesday asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Central Bank of Nigeria to immediately go after the promoters Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox, otherwise known as ‘MMM’ in Nigeria.



Lawmakers strongly opposed the investment scheme, which lately gained popularity among Nigerians in the wake of the current economic recession in the country.

MMM promises 30 per cent return on investment for any money put into the scheme within 30 days.

The investment scheme has a Russian origin and “involves directing clients to make money available for an anonymous person with a promise of 30 per cent return within one month.”

But, members described the scheme as a “scam” and warned Nigerians not to be carried away by the “mouth-watering” returns on investments.

Lawmakers warned that the “trick” used by the operators was to attract as many Nigerians as possible to invest substantial amounts of money before the bubble would burst.

The House directed the EFCC, security agencies and the CBN to take urgent steps to halt the scheme before many Nigerians would become victims of the scam.

It also asked its Committees on Banking/Currency and Financial Crimes to investigate the activities of MMM Nigeria Scheme, “with a view to saving Nigerians participating in the scheme from you financial ruin.”

The Chairman, House Committee on Telecommunications, Mr. Saheed Fijabi, had in a motion, drawn the attention of the House to the growing popularity of the scheme among Nigerians.

Fijabi, an All Progressives Congress lawmaker from Oyo State, represents Ibadan-South/West Federal Constituency.

“The scheme entered the Nigerian circle in 2016, capitalising on the high level of unemployment and poverty to deceive unwary Nigerians into falling prey to their antics”, Fijabi stated.

He said the fact that MMM was not regulated by law or approved by the CBN as a secure business venture, made Nigerians more vulnerable.

  9. Government says “Participate in MMM at your own risk”
    This is laughable. useless House of Rep wants EFCC to make Arrest? In Nigeria, I sleep at my own risk, I wake up at my own risk, I go out at my own risk, I come in at my own risk, I put my MONEY in the bank at my own risk, Even in banks, CARS are parked at OWNERS risk. I do everything at my own risk. So there’s nothing special about doing MMM at my own risk… Long Live MMM Nigeria…Mavrodians, enjoy jor

The Financial system of this country is such that only the Rich and Super Rich can access Loans financial institutions at the very expense of the poor masses....now the Thieves are sensing that the poor are beginning to have a sigh of relief amidst this economic recession which obviously the Govt is Confused and more confused about...Banks have turned as transit centers for the discentralization of funds that was hitherto the exclusives of the Rich....these same financial institutions that will never ever advance even the softest Loan to young business Starters without Earth shaking Collaterals are now sponsoring these Dishonourable Members of House of Rep or should i say the National Assembly Self to dissuade people from seeking self help from this seemingly unending recession...the funny thing is that suddenly they are acting as if they ''CARE ABOUT US' with the Corruption cases hanging on almost all their HEADS....Nonsense wish all Nigerian or Marvorodians thinks like me nowwwwwww i dey vex

  17. Nigerian law maker you are and why are you concerned about individual investments? Nigerians have taken their faith as they see it and believe in struggling to make ends meet. The question now is, as individuals are we not free to invest on what we think is good for us and our family? Even though we pay regular tax to government and other essential commodities at threeple the price ,which we hardly enjoy because there's no one to complain to, so what again?

    If MMM wants to crash let it crash on top my head...
    See me see trouble.. Na only money i use? Am not a civil servant self..am self employed, so let me use my money how i deem fit..
    U had better work on improving this country rather than been jealous of the soft lives nigerians are now having because of mmm

  19. MMM for life. As long as MMM is active, we will continue to do it. They know it's impossible to crash the site that's why they are directing EFCC to arrest people. You should concentrate on arresting those that looted nigeria money

  21. Fuck MMM they are thieves and they deserve to be stopped. They are putting innocent people in temporary moratorium after working hard to get money to provide help then they block you from getting your cash. If you were in moratorium before why will they allow you to provide help only to take it away from you.
