Telecommunications giant, MTN has denied claims of a number of theirs being used to manipulate people to take their lives.
There have been allegations that MTN numbers, 08030004900 and 08066699666, belong to some serial killers, which they have been using to take peoples lives when calls are received through them.
There are also claims that when calls are received through them, the receiver jumps into the Lagos Lagoon.
A message on WhatsApp had read:
08030004600 and 08066699666: Warning: Do not pick any of these numbers. They are severe killer numbers, which was reported to have been killing people across the country. SAVE LIVES!
But now, MTN have stated clearly that the numbers were for telemarketing and promo purposes, not any killer numbers.
