Nigerians ridicule Obinwanne Okeke over arrest by FBI
Nigerians on social media have ridiculed a Forbes-rates entrepreneur, Obinwanne Okeke, after his arrest by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over conspiracy to commit fraud of over $12 million.
Okeke, 31, is the founder of Invictus Group.
Back In 2016, he was honoured by Forbes as one of “30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 to Watch”.
Okeke was also listed among 100 Most Influential Young Africans 2018.
Okeke’s arrest comes after representatives of Unatrac Holdings Limited filed a complaint for allegedly being victimised in the fraud.
He has been called a ‘Yahoo boy’ on Twitter, a word used to describe an internet fraudster in Nigeria.
Mr. Obinwanne Okeke had two personalitites
Invictus Obi that aspires to acquire so as to inspire your desire
Then there is Convictus Obi that Acquire your card, so he can wire and build his empire.
Let’s not confuse the two, They caught Convictus Obi not Invictus Obi.
