The United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF, in Nigeria, have called out Hon. Opeyemi Falegan, the estranged lover of Nollywood actress, Nkechi Blessing, over an alleged fraudulent donation.

Falegan, a politician and humanitarian, had launched a donation via his Instagram page and claimed that the proceeds will go directly to UNICEF.

However, UNICEF Nigeria in a post shared on their verified Instagram page, have debunked the donation and labelled it a “scam”.

According to them, any campaign to raise funds are usually posted on their official website and social media pages, and warned people not to be deceived,

Sharing a photo of the donation post, UNICEF Nigeria wrote,

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 and verified social media pages.
Do not fall victim to this scam!”

This follows the messy controversy surrounding his separation from the Nollywood actress.
