Tragic investment :- How mother of two committed suicide over MMM scheme


A woman in Benue State, who invested borowed money in the popular MMM scheme, lost the money, has committed suicide, Tribune reports.

Gloria Samson, 34, according to reports, had left her home in Makurdi, on 28 December, 2016 around 9 p.m leaving behind her two children both five years of age.

As she took her leave, she bided her children bye and apologised for any wrongdoing she might have committed against them and pleaded for forgiveness. The same message was reportedly sent through the children to her husband, David (pictured), a printer, who was still at work at that time.

She walked down to River Benue and drowned herself and her body was discovered by police on 2 January, 2017. It was alleged that she decided to commit suicide due to the crash of MMM, having invested a N.4million loan she procured from various places in town.

Some of those who spoke to Sunday Tribune, said Gloria was a very lively person until early December 2016, when news of the crash in MMM went viral. One of her friends, Kate, said: “She came to my stall early December, she was so moody, unlike her usual way of life.

I asked what the problem was, and she told me that she had run into deep problem. She added that she collected a sum of money and put it into MMM, but learnt that the thing had collapsed. She even threatened to run away.”

Some staff of the local bank where she obtained the loan, but were oblivious of her death, also traced her to her residence, to notify her that she had defaulted in her loan payment, only to be informed that she had passed on.

Her husband, David, also said towards December, 2016, he discovered she took a loan but there was nothing in the shop to suggest that she invested the money into her business.

He explained further that he discovered that his wife became depressed around early December when the news of the crash in MMM filtered into town and asked her what the problem was, but she only told him that she was sick.

  1. I don’t know why people believe or see suicide as d last solution to their problems…. If u understand your Bible or read the Bible very well, you ll read it’s a sin to kill yourself

  2. Once upon a time in a village, a man appeared and announced that he would buy monkeys for N100 each. The villagers seeing that there were so many monkeys around, went out to the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at N100 and as supply started to diminish, the villagers stopped their efforts. He further announced that he would now buy at N200. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to N250 but the supply of monkeys became so little that it took much effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch one. The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at N500! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on his behalf. In the absence of the man, his assistant told the villagers: ”Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that my OGA has bought from you, I will sell them to you at N350 and when my OGA returns from the city, you can sell it to him at N500”. The villagers squeezed out all their HARD EARNED savings and bought all the monkeys. The most greedy ones among them even sold their lands to purchase many MONKEYS, hoping to make a huge profit without labor. Then… They never saw the man or his assistant. Only monkeys everywhere! Welcome to # MMM. The world of MANY MONKEY MARKET, Rip though.

  3. You are greedy MMM said use your free money even though am not into it, I know friends who are in it and that’s what they tell me when introducing it to me. Now you became so selfish to kill yourself

  4. This is a tragic event!!..MMM is destroying lives with the way all this sucidal news is being heard because of them

  5. Suicide can never be the solution to any problem you encounter in life…. This is a mother we’re talking about. You don’t even care about the responsibilities, pains and agony of the children you’re leaving behind???? May God distance us away from such mothers!
