A lady who lost N650,000 to Goatti’s livestock investment business has called the company’s CEO, Ife Oniyide, “a liar from hell”.

Speaking with FIJ on Thursday, the lady, who asked not to be named, said the empty promises of Oniyide were beginning to take a toll on her mental health.

“As much as I wanted to tell myself that they wouldn’t pay, when they reeled out their lies from the pit of hell, I hoped that maybe something would be different this time,” she said.

“After all, they have trucks and they package meat. But everything they say is just a lie. When you go on Nairaland, you find people claiming they got paid. But you will find out that they are part of Goatti’s team.”

In March, FIJ detailed how Goatti, a Lagos-based livestock investment company and subsidiary of Remnikes Agricultural Produce and Services Limited, failed to pay the lady the sum of N845,000 due on her two rounds of investment.

She was cajoled into an investment scheme with a promise to return every investment capital with 30% interest after six months. Excited over reports that her initial investment of N150,000 was faring well, she again credited the company with N500,000 after one month.

On a visit to the Egbeda address on Goatti’s website, FIJ found out that the company probably never had an office in the vicinity. The address was home to people making bakery and catering moulds, and none of those who spoke with our reporter remembered ever hearing the company’s name.

After FIJ’s story, Oniyide contacted the lady, claiming that an attack on his livestock by Fulani herdsmen made it impossible to honour the payment agreement. He, however, promised to pay on April 22.

In a chat on the said date, he postponed payment to April 29, and over a week after, he is yet to credit the young lady.

“No doubt, they are scammers and liars,” the lady said. “I don’t want another round of call from them promising to pay. If it was true that they only had financial challenges, insurance would have stepped in. The investment would be two years in two months.”
