McNichols largest investor, Ijeoma Chimaraoke, sells off shares amid bullish run

Ijeoma Chimaraoke, the largest shareholder in McNichols Consolidated, has been selling off her shares in the company, engaging in about seven share dealings to take out part of her investment in one month.

Ripples Nigeria gathered that Chimaraoke offloaded over 1.29 million shares she held in the fast moving consumer brand between May 5 and May 16, at a period the capital market is bullish on McNichols stock on the exchange floor.
