A 25-year-old Nigerian lady Munachim Onyia who was recently declared missing has sparked mixed reactions on Twitter after some users accused her of faking her kidnap.
The lady identified as Munachim Chukwuma Onyia has been accused of absconding with over one billion Naira belonging to Nigerians who invested in a business scheme she operated.
Her brother Jordan on Sunday via Twitter alerted the general public about his missing sister, whom he claimed had not been seen for about 10 days.
In a Twitter thread, he said his sister was last spotted at her office in the early hours of April 29 and had gone missing since then.

Shortly after the post started garnering attention, some users dismissed the narrative that the lady was missing and accused her of fleeing after defrauding them of their hard-earned money.

More revelations started to unfold as several other users began sharing their sad experiences with Munachim Chukwuma Onyia.
A lady also disclosed how Onyia duped her of 64,000 cedis (over N4.5 million) about seven years ago.
Yooo this babe took 64,000 cedis and that’s just 1 person out of the 100s she scammed. Imagine our shock when we saw a video of her introducing herself as a financial expert and wealth advisor 4 years later in Lagos. Gaddemmm

Amid the drama, a video of Muna had surfaced wherein she was seen promoting Halo invest, a finance platform, and declaring that her target was to make $4 million.
“My name is Munachi. Let me tell you something. This year, I want to earn massive wealth, something like $4m. Forget what they tell you on Twitter,” she was heard saying.
Meanwhile she told us her target was 4million USD and we’re all acting shocked now. Wahala https://t.co/ycyj5BRtie

Is it a coincidence that you've disappeared with over 300 million Naira of people's money (that we know of) and you've been MIA for months but on the day that we are mourning missing persons, you're also declared missing?
I pray she's found safely 🙏🏿. And with the monies.

This latest development comes up at a time when Nigerians are mourning Iniobong Umoren, a young female job seeker who was murdered in Akwa Ibom state when she went for a job interview.
