8

Nollywood actor and Instagram sensation, Williams Uchemba, who had posed as Nigeria’s youth ambassador to the United Nations, and even met with President Muhammadu Buhari in the States, back in September, has been accused of fraud

United Nations Youth Envoy, Jayathma Wickramanayake, who is an aide to the Secretary-General of the UN, António Guterres, said he was unknown to the organisation.

A United States-based Nigerian human rights activist, Edafe Okporo, had shared a screenshot of a supposed chat thread with Uchemba requesting information on how to attend an upcoming UN Youth Assembly event.

The response from the former child actor read, “I will need three things from you: passport data page, email address and registration fee ($1,000). After payment is confirmed, I will then send you a questionnaire for you to fill and send back.

According to screenshots that went viral on social media, Okporo alerted Wickramanayake, who responded, saying she was working on a message “to save young people from scams like these.”

Shortly after, in a statement via her official Twitter account, the UN envoy said, “It has been brought to my attention that organisations and individuals claim affiliation to my office and the United Nations, promising participation in meetings and conferences upon payment of a fee.

“Please note: The United Nations does not charge a fee at any stage for participating in meetings and conferences. The Office of the United Nations Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth does not have country or regional representatives.”
