it to this number calling people. They’ve flooded my WhatsApp with such

after he received a call from home while on his way to work, suddenly developed
a stroke and died hours later after he was admitted at Lagos State Teaching
hospital.

  1. There's another mysterious number they said it has killed people. I received the warning on whatsapp that I should not answer or chat with the number. My Truecaller displayed the name of the number something like "mary" bla bla bla. I didn't save this number on my phone because I don't care nor believe on such things. But to my surprise that the same night I received chat message from the same name on snapchat. But I didn't notice on time, I thought the person was on my friends list, but when I checked my friends list I couldn't find her there. So I quickly blocked her. Honestly I was very scared and I prayed very well that night. So till today am still confused.

  2. ANALYSIS:
    The number 08030004900 is an MTN Nigeria telemarketing line used for promotions.
    It's mtn short code. Instead of calling with 4900, they call with a longer normal looking number.
    It is customized for marketing purposes only and as such cannot be called back.
    MTN Nigeria uses the shortcode: 4900 for their callertunez promotion services. Full digits for 4900 is 0803 000 4900.
    It's in no way related to the suicide at Lagos Lagoon
