A group of Nigerians have written a petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to have comedian Emmanuel Chuwkwuemeka Ejekwu, known as Sabinus, arrested for endorsing and advertising the AI Mining Ponzi scheme.
Sabinus has posted various videos promoting the alleged Ponzi scheme. Checks have shown that he was one of the ambassadors for the Ponzi-like company, which has left investors due payment stranded after it crashed.
The petition asks that the comedian reveals the identity of the people behind AI Mining and for the anti-graft agency to extend an invitation to the General Manager of NTA, FAAJI FM and WAZOBIA to reveal the identity of those contracted to lend credibility through advertising.
The petition read:
“Prior to mischievous scam activities carried against many innocent Nigerians by a company named AI MINING on 30th of March, 2023, whose ambassador in Nigeria is one Mr Chukwuemeka Emmanuel Ejekwu, a comedian celebrity popularly called Mr Funny / Sabinus.
“We want this body to invite Mr Funny Sabinus Chukwuemeka to reveal the identity of the people behind AI MINING since he can’t be contracted by ghosts. “We are also using this letter to tell you to help reveal the real identity of the entities behind the license/ certificate issued to AI Mining operating at Church gate Towers Abuja 2nd floor. “Sequence to this also, we want the anti-graft agency to extend invitation to the General Manager of NTA, FAAJI FM, WAZOBIA to also reveal the identity of people that contracted them to run series of jingles for them under the company named AI MINING, that made millions of innocent Nigerians to invest on their platform leveraging on the integrity of those stations.”
A supposed victim said that people were dying because they invested and borrowed money after credible individuals advertised the scheme through the media.
A supposed fraud victim said:
“Please help us, poor masses are dying because any borrowed money to invest because of all the evidence provided by them with TV and radio stations that advertised to them. “We got the advert on NTA, Wazobia, Silver Bird and Sabinus and other means about AI mining, that it is real and genuine, so many people because it was coming from national television stations keyed into it. After some months that many Nigerians have invested a huge amount of money, they closed the app and refused to return people’s money. “Many borrowed money for that investment, many used their hard earned money to invest and a lot are dying because of their huge amount they invested. Help us please.”
