Daniel Anokwuru

One of the victims of the Onitsha fuel tanker fire with the name, Oluka Dominic has alleged that a Facebook user with the name, Smart Onyema has been using his burnt shop to defraud the public. Onyema, immediately after the fire incident, had posted a picture on Facebook, standing in front of a burnt shop. He posted a picture of before and after the incident.

Kind hearted Nigerians took to their Facebook page to ask for donations for the impostor. Some posted evidence of the donations they had made to him, while prominent politicians kept on asking for his direct contact so they can make a donation to him.
The real owner of the shop has disassociated himself from the scam. He said Onyema is never the owner of the shop.

Dominic posted: “It will be very bad of me if I don’t clear the air, I’ve been getting series of calls that one Smart Onyema claimed that the burnt shop his standing in front belongs to him, as such have been defrauding peeps Both his before shop and after shop are two different shops, his after shop which is the burnt shop is mine, and I don’t want to be party to any dubious collection of money from anybody in guise of trying to help the owner of the shop”.

“Yes, the Onitsha fire out break affected me heavily but I know I will rise again cause my trust is in God. Don’t allow anyone scam u online, investigate and confirm before helping anyone online”.
