Woman reportedly Commits Suicide after losing N400,000 in the MMM Scheme



Gloria Samson, aged 34, reportedly left her hometown in Markurdi Benue State on the 28th of December 2016 to commit suicide after getting depressed by the crash of the MMM scheme around early December. After saying goodbye to her two sons, she left a message for her husband begging to be forgiven for her wrong doings and she then headed off to River Benue to drown herself.

It is alleged that she had invested and lost N400,000 into the scheme after borrowing numerous loans from various sources in the town without her husband’s knowledge.

Her husband, Samson David (pictured above), was told of the discovery of her body in the river on the 2nd of January 2017. Her body was eventually identified by a neighbour in the Morgue of the Federal Medical Centre in Makurdi on the 17th of January 2017.

The news of the crash of the MMM Scheme went viral in early December and caused a lot of fright amongst its members. Several of Gloria’s neighbours corroborated that she had become depressed upon hearing this news and this eventually lead to her death.

Gloria was buried on Friday 27th of January 2017 at Ankpa Ward Public Cemetery, Makurdi.

    I just wonder how people that scam other people of thier sweat feel. Just Imagine a mother two.
    And the guy in charge of the MMM scam in Nigeria even had the mind to get married last December. Admist al the heat and people’s cries.
    May God deal with all that lead the MMM scam and contributed to people’s death and rendering innocent children motherless.

    MMM says, participate only with your spare money, why did she use that kinda money when she loaned it, in her next world she’d use her sense better. RIP anyway

    Chai, this is actually an empty world. I would advise all that were involved with MMM to come out and speak about it as virtually everyone that participated are now denying their involvement because they do not want to be laughed at or blamed after they were warned. Problem shared is relatively solved. Killing yourself, absconding from debtors, drowning in depression and deep thought that could lead to High blood pressure should never be an option. As there must always be a way out eventually! What a sad news!

    I hope this woman finds rest. But, surely it has to be greed that would make anyone borrow money and hand over same to a money doubler? Forget the fancy name(s) anyone who promises to double/triple your money within a short span of time is a scammer and you have to have “insect eyes” to fall. Even at that, MMM advised all ‘donors’ (yes, you all donated to fund some smart alec’s lifestyle) to only donate spare cash. That is a sympton of the malaise in our society. You watch a nollywood movie and you see a youth corper living in a duplex and driving an SUV immediately after service. Even when there is nothing to show how the money that enabled such a drastic change in lifestyle was made. The society worships money/wealth irrespective of how it was made. I hope this serves as a lesson to all.

    i would love to agree to the advice and the shading she gets from previous comments but the truth is.. People saw MMM as a means of changing their live style bcoz people are suffering.. big time , the hardship is unbearable and MMM came around and it seems it could elevate you from suffering to luxury…so people borrowed money to participate … believe it or not …… the level of suffering in nigeria is unbearable dont blame her she was just trying to make more,

    She died of multiple scams. Self-seeking politicians like Tinubu and Obasanjo collided with self-seeking ‘inflencers’ like Omojuwa,Chude and Debola Williams to sell a very useless Buhari to her-a big scam. Then when the scam that is Buhari started to manifest severe hardship, self-seeking MMM people offered to bail her out-another scam. That would be too much for anyone to bear. May her soul finally find rest now that she has left the evil and wicked world of Tinubu, Obasanjo, Omojuwa, Debola Williams, Chude et al.

      My people are being scammed to death! From the politicians you just mentioned to businesses that sell substandard services at exorbitant rate. After all this, along comes spiritual highway robbers in the name of pastors to eat off the carcass like the very vultures that they are!

    MMM is a Ponzi scheme. The Owners said you should invest with your spare money not your whole money. That is why there are many heart breaks over the scheme.

    This is extremely sad! People clearly deal with their issues differently, some others have even more in the system and have “moved” on..somehow.
    We will need to stop the blame game,the economic situation in the country led very many to be involved in such schemes.
    R.I. P all the same
