This has caused outrage.
According to a member of the group, It was gathered that Tunde ran a massive and catchy advert on Facebook where he dropped the WhatsApp group link which enabled him get such number of people in a short while.
Tunde who waited till the group was filled up and was able to convince 200+ members to provide him help with 3,000 Naira each would in return double their money in 2days time (24hours).
