Earlier today angry investors staged a fresh protest against popular trading platform, MBA Forex in Port-harcourt, Rivers State.
The protesters stormed the palace of the paramount ruler of Elekahia community, His Royal Highness A.W Akarolo, where the CEO of MBA forex, Maxwell Odum hailed from. There they appealed to the king to prevail on his “kinsman” to refund investors money.
Speaking on behalf of the aggrieved protesters, chairman of the civil society organization in Rivers State, Enefa Georgewill said they will “return to the palace” in protest, if their demand is not addressed within the shortest possible time.
Reports claim that over 40,000 of the 125, 000 investors in the MBA Forex are resident in Rivers State.
He said, “We have presented our matter before him (the king) informing him of how our members have been defrauded and of course his highness has given us his words that he is going to investigate this matter and make sure that within the shortest possible time, that he will get the fact of this matter and justice is done.”
The latest protest is one of a series of protests that have been embarked on by the investors against the scheme.
