OKNaira replied that he registered on their app in February 2021 but did not apply for a loan.

However, the system, according to OKNaira, should have “disbursed” the loan when Oladipupo’s “quota was calculated”.

You can’t pay back the money without interest, you have to pay back ₦120,240 in 6 days, OKNaira tells Oladipupo

Despite admitting that Oladipupo did not apply for a loan, OKNaira said he could not return the money without the interest.

He was told to repay ₦120,240 in six days.

Oladipupo returns money, OKNaira threatens to embarrass him

Confident that he did not apply for a loan, Oladipupo returned the money credited to his account to OKNaira without adding any interest.

When he sent them an email informing them that their money had been returned, OKNaira said Oladipupo should wait to be disgraced.

“No cell line to call, no representative, when I replied that their money was returned to them immediately, they simply told me to wait to be a disgrace…. Adding that I should do better and do business with the money before the 7 days passed,” Oladipupo said on Facebook.

The Illegal Activities of Online Loan Programs in Nigeria

For several months, the federal government, through the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), has been making efforts to rein in the operators of online loan applications in Nigeria.

In March 2022, the FCCPC raided at least seven digital loan companies operating in Lagos over ‘possible violation’ of consumer rights.

The operation led by the commission’s boss, Babatunde Irukera, was in response to several complaints of malpractice on the part of the lenders.
