Nollywood actress and African Democratic Congress (ADC) deputy Governorship candidate, Tonto Dikeh has expressed sadness and guilt over the death of a young boy.
Leakblast.com reports that the philanthropist took to her Instagram page to narrate an encounter with a scammer.
In the social media post, Tonto said she had rendered help to a fan, who had complained about having a serious challenge and showed her baby as evidence.
The actress felt compassion for the fan and gave her three hundred and seventy thousand Naira but felt used and disappointed when she returned to check the social media page and discovered that it has been deleted.
According to the mother of one, she received a similar message from a fan, seeking medical assistance but she ignored and deleted the message.
Unfortunately, she received a message on Wednesday morning from the woman, saying her son is dead and this hurt her so much saying she will hate herself for a long time.
She wrote: Few weeks ago I helped out a random fan with almost half a million naira (370k) cause they had mad challenges and she showed a baby and all, one week later I just wanted to check on them. BOOM the account has been deleted, I took it with good faith. I was so pissed, I felt used and taken for granted but I moved on.
FF to 2days ago, I saw similar message, seeking for medical assistance. The way I deleted and ignored the message ehn, this morning I opened my DM the mother told me her son died…… My eyes hurt from. My heart aches so bad….
I will hate myself for a very long time. See the amount of damage one person lies and choices have caused. My heart goes out to everyone going through one thing or the other!! I will beat myself up for this for as long as I stop feeling guilty but the person who made me ignore that message I pray you suffer more than the grieving mothers.”
