UNICEF issues scam alert against Nkechi Blessing’s ex-lover, Falegan


The United Nations Children’s Fund in Nigeria has issued a scam alert and distanced itself from a politician, Opeyemi David Falegan.

Falegan, who is the former lover of Nollywood actress, Nkechi Blessing, took to his Instagram page, @hon_falegan_official_, where he claimed to be on a fundraising drive for the people of Ukraine with his charity organisation, ODF Foundation, in partnership with UNICEF.

“This donation goes directly to UNICEF, don’t forget about our @odf_foundation…” calling for more donations from his followers.

However, after the post was published, UNICEF debunked the claim via its verified Instagram page @unicef_nigeria on Friday.

“Scam alert,” read the caption. “UNICEF Nigeria is aware of a fictitious donation drive to raise funds for UNICEF.

“Please be aware that all legitimate campaigns for donations are hosted on the UNICEF website www.unicef.org and verified social media pages. Do not fall victim to this scam!”

Despite UNICEF raising the alarm, Falegan posted on his Instagram page that he had raised £60 to be donated for relief efforts in Ukraine through the UN body.
