18-year-old Veronica Bako Myomuter, a 100 level student of the Department of History and International Studies at the University of Calabar, has reportedly committed suicide after being defrauded of her school fees.

Bako had invested the money into a ponzi scheme where she was told she would get double the amount in a few minutes and was scammed of N100,000 which was said to be her school fees which she couldn’t pay before the Coronavirus lockdown. She allegedly committed suicide by ingesting a poisonous substance on Thursday August 6


  1. So awful, why can’t she inform her friends for further advise before investing the money in Ponzi? But notwithstanding, suicide is not the next option. RIP

  2. She ought to have heard about all these Ponzi people because they are all fraudsters. Instead of killing herself, she should have gone/report to someone, may be the person would have helped to plead on her behalf and be giving another money to repay the school fees. So sad.

  3. I think there should be sensitisation against suicide, and fraudulent activities should really be checked.
    Youth should know that the downfall of a man is not the end of it all.

  4. Why nah, she support Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.but all the xame.may her rest in peace .

  5. Shit….This is so so sad to hear
    Suicide is never an option to any problem one feels he or she has
    There is nothing that equals to someone’s life and no one should take his or her life that he or she at the first instance did not give to himself but was given by the Almighty God
    These scammers are everywhere and should be traced and I advice people not to patronize these Ponzi schemes. They are fraudulent
    May her soul rest in peace
