Mr Agbo Paul Onyebuchi Divine, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of De Ecstasy Agro and Farming Services, has reportedly disappeared with his investors’ money running into billions while bragging that nobody can do him anything.
According to SaharaReporters, the young businessman fled with the money invested in his company by members of the public whom he promised to pay 30 per cent return on investment every 30 working days.
It was gathered that many of the investors who visited the company’s office located at 234 Enugu Road, Nsukka, Enugu State, have been left disappointed as Mr Divine is nowhere to be found since the beginning of this month (November).
One of his investors who arw largely made up of students of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) and other institutions around, said Divine had boasted that nothing will happen to him as he has the protection of those at the ‘top’.
A victim of the investment fraud identified as Maduka Anyika Madu said the development has thrown many families in Enugu into sorrow and depression.
He said, “Agbo Paul Onyebuchi Divine, CEO of De Ecstasy Agro and Farming Services, has run away with investors’ money running into billions. He even brags that nobody can do him anything.
“This callous act by him has thrown many families in Enugu into crisis. People who invested their funds have been left to cry in pain. We are pleading with the authorities to help us track this man down and ensure we all get back our money.”
Another victim of the fraud, Chinaza Ugwuoke, who also expressed disappointment at the development, said, “I can’t still believe I was scammed. Oh Lord, how do I survive this?”
A young man named Onyedikachi Hyginus, who is also a victim of the now absconded businessman, said the situation has affected his life negatively.
He said, “My life is in shambles because of him (Mr Agbo Paul Onyebuchi Divine).”
Other victims of this scam, who also expressed regret at the latest development, revealed that Mr Divine and his De Ecstasy Agro and Farming Services caused the people of Nsukka pain and that without getting their money back, many families will not recover from the trauma for a long time.
Apart from collecting funds from members of the public through his farming business with the promise of paying mouth-watering returns under six weeks, Divine also runs a real estate firm that he uses to lure unsuspecting members of the public to part ways with their funds.
When contacted to get the reaction of the ‘wanted’ businessman over the development, his mobile phone was switched off as at the time of filing this report.
