KanyiDaily recalls that four months ago, MBA forex investors had staged a protest at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja over the inability of Maxwell Odum to refund their “unpaid dividends and capital”.

The victims were demanding the arrest and prosecution of Odum over allegations of fraud with his company, which is said to have had its headquarters at Port Harcourt, the Rivers capital.

They maintained that a formal petition has been submitted to the Zonal office of the commission in Portharcourt Rivers State and vowed to mobilize all investors across the country to occupy the EFCC offices nationwide.

The victims of MBA forex also accused the EFCC of conniving with the company, threatening to mobilize other investors across the country to shut down the headquarters of the commission if they fail to arrest him.
