Dr. Ope Banwo, the Coordinating Attorney, Omegapro Action Nigeria (OPANI), has shade light on why promoters and agents of a N200 billion fraud allegedly perpetrated by Omegapro Forex and Investment Trading Company must refund part or all of the commissions they received.
OPANI is a group made up of Nigerian investors whose funds remain stuck in the scam.
Banwo alleged that top leader MLM Diamonds such as Daniel Onoja, Tomiwa Orunnipin, Samuel Ajibare, and Leo Bonaventure among others deliberately lured Nigerian investors into investing in what has now been discovered to be a Ponzi scheme.
In a rival video, the Coordinating Attorney for OPANI, explained the first line of recovery of funds lost by investors, adding that it starts with those who championed the scam in Nigeria, including promoters and agents such as Grace Udenwa Udoye, Wuraola Fadairo Orunupin, Olasebikan Oladapo, Maryann Ilorah, Chinwe Ikpe, Ajibare Olushola Ebunoluwa, Dotun Fatoyinbo, Dr. Afoma Nwolisa, and Matthew Ogunmodede.
He added that OPANI hopes to recover some or all of the investments lost to OmegaPro owners, their agents, endorsers, collaborators, and marketers who profited the most from the scam in collecting commissions from signing up unsuspecting members of the public.

“I continue to affirm that we are NOT focusing on the leaders alone and leaving out influencers, Dubai royals, owners of the company, etc…. but charity MUST begin at home with good faith effort by those who led us into this in the first place.
“It is not a punishment or a vendetta. Refunding some of the commissions is only the fair, just, humane, and classy thing to do,” Banwo said.
Speaking further, he added that OPANI will soon seek other legal and police actions on the issue, explaining thus, “Charity begins at home and those who have profited the most from the scam in collecting commissions from signing up unsuspecting members of the public NEED to refund part of the income earned and then help us go after the other nine action points.”
Emphasizing that topmost leaders and diamonds in OmegaPro Nigeria, cannot be allowed to keep proceeds of a scam, Banwo noted that a dummy was sold to over 250,000 Nigerians and over 5 million people worldwide.
According to him, the fraudulent forex trading scheme has had devastating global consequences, resulting in financial losses exceeding $100 billion worldwide and N200 billion in Nigeria alone, while pointing out that it has left victims in over 70 countries, Including rich and poor, widows and retirees, grappling with the aftermath of shattered dreams and stolen investments.
“Some of these top promoters collected a 10 per cent commission from OmegaPro as finders fee from the investment of every unsuspecting investor they referred to the scheme by selling it as a forex trading company.
“At the height of what has now proven to be a mega scam, several of these top agents and promoters earned over $50,000 weekly as finders’ fee, they collected commissions from 1000s of unsuspecting Nigerians whom they kept leading to believe that OmegaPro was a legit Forex Trading Company. They have to refund this money.”
In 2022, OmegaPro was introduced into Nigeria with great fanfare and personal testimonials of their credibility by the likes of Onoja, Orunnipin, Ajibare, and other top-level MLM leaders despite the owners of the Dubai-based company having a documented history of previous involvements and indictments in several Ponzi MLM schemes where investors lost billions of Dollars.
