Prominent Nigerian Instagram comedian and skitmaker, Chukwuebuka Emmanuel Amuzie, popularly known as Brain Jotter, has expressed his dismay after falling victim to a scam perpetrated by a physically challenged individual.
Just a few days ago, the comedian garnered admiration from many when he extended assistance to a handicapped lady. In a video shared on his social media platform, he recounted how he encountered the lady, Eniola, who was selling bottled water in traffic. Touched by her plight, he decided to offer her help.
During their conversation, he discovered that she hailed from Osun State and was a makeup artist. Due to her financial constraints in acquiring makeup equipment, she had resorted to street vending. Eniola mentioned that she needed N400,000 to kick-start her business, and to everyone’s surprise, Brain Jotter generously gifted her the substantial sum.

Unfortunately, it has been revealed by an anonymous blog, Gistlover, that the physically challenged individual was actually a male pretending to be a woman in order to make a living. To exacerbate the situation, it was discovered that the handicapped boy had received financial assistance on multiple occasions in the past.
Reacting to this shocking news on his Instagram story, Brain Jotter confirmed that someone had previously aided the hawker with N600,000. Expressing his weariness at the prevalence of scammers in the country, he conveyed his frustration with the situation.
