Medical Women Association of Nigeria, MWAN, an umbrella body of female doctors, Ebonyi State branch, said the association had been duped by fraudsters.
President of the association, Dr. Thecla Ezeonu disclosed this yesterday at Ndiebor Ishieke Community Primary School, Abakaliki, during the inauguration of projects in the school.
She said the fraudsters who came by the name ‘Water and Horticulture Development’ came to the union and requested that they be given the projects to execute.
According to her, “In the course of these projects we got into the hands of fraudsters by the name ‘Water and Horticulture Development’ said to be managed by Community Borehole Development assistance programme and Nigerian Houses and Environment Sanitation and Protection Programme led by one Dominic Essien.
“They flaunted fake papers and dossiers and claimed to be affiliated to the Federal Ministry of Works and took our money and abandoned the projects.
“We picked up our broken bones and set to work again and we were able to put in place what you see today, within our limited resources.”
