A Nigerian lady, identified simply as Baby C, has called out reality TV star, Eric Akhigbe, for allegedly duping her of N5.3 million she paid to secure a slot in the BBNaija house.
The lady, in a video posted on her Instagram page, shared screenshots of her chat with Eric, a former housemate in the Big Brother Naija lockdown edition, and accused him of scamming her and using the money to relocate abroad.
In the screenshots she shared, she had contacted Eric to inform him about her intention to participate in the reality TV show and he linked her up with a supposed agent of Multichoice, the organizers of BBNaija.
The agent then charged her N5 million for a slot in the BBNaija season 7 show and an extra N300,000 for media and content creation.
Due to her desperation to participate in the show, she made the payment of N5.3m in three instalments but unfortunately, she wasn’t selected as an housemate in the recently concluded show.
After being disappointed, she sent numerous messages to Eric to help her get a refund from the alleged Multichoice agent but he failed to respond to her messages.
Baby C, who is livid over the loss of her hard-earned money, then accused Eric of scamming her and using the proceeds to relocate to the UK.
She also claimed that she has reported the case to the police and it’s currently in the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.
