A Nigerian beauty queen, Ugwu Joy, has been imprisoned in Kirikiri prison after an alleged involvement in N7.5 million scam which her family claims to be MMM.

According to reports, Joy who was Miss Asaigbo 2016, a throne for all the five Southeastern states in the federation, was alleged to be a scammer after police investigations.

It was gathered that she was remanded in Kirikiri by a Magistrate court sitting in Lagos over the allegation.

SunNewsOnline reports that the beauty queen was alleged to have duped innocent and unsuspecting Nigerians through a visa racket and ponzi scheme, and landed in prison after police arrested her following complaint from some of her alleged victims.

One of her victims whom she was accused of fleecing of his hard earned money, Jonathan, claimed that he had been duped of N1million while another, Oby, accused her of duping her of N2million.

Jonathan who claimed his visa request in care of the beauty queen was shattered said: “The girl duped me one million naira and the evidence is there. I didn’t have much to say, because she said she wanted the matter to be taken to court.

“What baffled me was the way she took the matter. It was quite obvious that she defrauded me. All she needed to do was to surrender and settle for peace to reign. I don’t understand why she decided to go to court; I heard the comments she made in the police station.

“The money is just one million naira and she behaved as if it was dollars. All I planned was to recover my money in a very simple way.”

One Bethel Chikezie who is said to be Joy’s relation, said: “The case is not just a thing of today. The allegation was based on MMM. I don’t know if the person who reported her has any personal matter with her. Maybe the person does not like her.”

MMM is not a recognised business in Nigeria, even the government warned when all these things came up. The point now is that they wanted her to pay for the thing, but she is saying no, because she did no wrong. Everybody did MMM, her own case could not be different.”

Meanwhile, reports reaching Concise News has it that Joy Ugwu was an accounting undergraduate of Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT and she is the founder of a foundation which caters for the vulnerable and needy children.

The beauty queen was reported to have been orphaned at a tender age which inspired her decision to cater for children who lack care and love.

She recently celebrated her birthday with the prisoners who she lavished with gifts and shared their stories. It is indeed a surprise that she is currently an inmate there.
