Munachim Chukwuma Onyia, a 25-year-old lady declared missing, has continued to spark mixed reactions on Twitter after some users accused her of faking her own kidnap.
Jordan, Onyia’s brother, had on Sunday taken to the microblogging platform to alert the 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 Thursday and had gone missing since then.
“My sister Munachim Chukwuma Onyia has been missing for about 10 days. My parents reached out to the police Earlier but there seems to me no valid update or information yet, she was last seen on Thursday early hours at the office in Victoria Island,” he wrote.
“Her numbers one hasn’t been reachable while the other is reachable and seems to be with a guy that has been scamming people and us in exchange for information about her whereabouts, he asked us to send him money so as to get an address and to help her escape only for him to send an address with a dead end.”
The development, which comes at about the same time when Iniubong Umoren, a young female job seeker was killed in Akwa Ibom state, had prompted the hashtag #FindMunachim.
But shortly after the post started garnering attention, some users dismissed the narrative that the lady was missing. They also accused her of fleeing after defrauding them of their hard-earned money.
“Your sister is not lost. She is hiding with my money and several other peoples money to the tune of billions. Stop this nonsense. I was at police station till 3am because of this bullshit, people are in trouble because of this babe and these ones are doing social media campaign,” a user had fired back.
