ALERT: Ejikeme Maxwell flees with Enugu students’ school fees in India



Three students from Enugu State, South East Nigeria studying in Vivekananda Global University, Jaipur, India are currently stranded after one Ejikeme Maxwell Maduekwe fled with their school fees.

According to JOURNALIST101, Ejikeme Maxwell, from Ezeagu local government area of Enugu State was allegedly into money exchange for foreign students and has been in the country for over four years.

The leader of the Nigerian Students in India, contacted Ejikeme with Passport No. A09628984, VISA NO. VJ9782097 and AADHAR NUMBER 7069-9949-5261 to help some Nigerian students pay for their fees in Dollar because of the difficulty in assessing forex.

Rather than pay the fees for all the students that were given admission at Vivekananda Global University, Jaipur, India, for which he was given the naira equivalent, he paid for half and absconded with the remaining money.

Efforts to reach Ejikeme to pay the fees of the stranded students to the University authority after collecting same from the parents of the victims couldn’t yield any result leading to few of the students being stranded in India because the school said they can’t continue if the fees wasn’t paid while others are trapped in Nigeria till date.

One of the students told our Correspondent that they reported the matter to Indian police and they quickly dispatched a team to arrest him.

“When they got to his known address within Jaipur National University, Jagatpura, Jaipur, it was discovered that he has packed out of the house and is owing his landlord 3 months rent,” the student who doesn’t want his name in print told our correspondent.

JOURNALIST101 reliably gathered that a total sum of Five million, one hundred thousand Naira (N5,100,000) was given to him by the parents of the students, but rather than pay the school dollar equivalent, he used the money to process his movement from India to Canada and has blocked all the students from seeing nor reaching him.

One of the parents of an affected student who spoke to our correspondent, said he’s devastated by the development but expressed satisfaction with the intervention from an arm of Enugu State government which he said, is assisting them in making necessary contacts to ensure the culprit is arrested.

Though he declined making further comment on the particular agency of government that’s doing this, he said “I wouldn’t want to speak about that for now but I’m very sure that Nigeria High Commission in India has been contacted and a strong worded petition has been sent to the Canadian government on why a character like Ejikeme shouldn’t be allowed into their country.”
