The owner of a Ponzi scheme company based in Port Harcourt, Neeni Swanu, is on the run following the closure of his office by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Port Harcourt’s Zonal Office.
Operatives of the anti-graft agency, however, arrested 19 staff of the investment company. The EFCC said the company had defrauded members of the public to the tune of N2 billion.
The company, Bluekey Investment Club, operating from Sonia Mall, 42 Woji Road, YKC Junction, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, as a software development and general contracting firm, but veered into an interest-yielding Ponzi Scheme, that promised ten percent weekly returns on investment for a period of six months after which the principal and interest would be paid to the investors.
