Meet Emmanuel Nwude..the Man Who Sold A Fake Airport for $242m by henrydadon(m): 11:44am On Apr 09, 2017
Well have you ever heard of Emmanuel Nwude? This guy is like the Michael Jordan of Nigerian scammers. He was able to "sell" a fake airport to a Brazilian bank director (Nelson Sakaguchi) for a whopping $242 MILLION dollars in the mid-90s. The Brazilian bank, called Banco Noroeste (based out of San Paulo) later collapsed in 2001.
Emmanuel was later arrested in 2004, but the courts initially dismissed the case because the fraud did not take place in Abuja. As soon as Emmanuel (and his co-conspirators) walked out of court, they were re-arrested and the case was moved to Lagos (another Nigerian city). Bomb scares and bribery were also used in an attempt to have (whatever the Nigerian courts' equivalent is of) a mistrial or the case thrown out.
Emmanuel was eventually sentenced to several years in prison, and had all of his assets seized. However, he fought the courts, and claimed he possessed a lot of these assets before the Fake Airport scheme, and (according to Wikipedia) has already gotten somewhere to the tune of $52 million back in his possession. I just heart about this today.

And the way stupidity runs in the nerves if these Oyingbo people is startling.
One day someone will sell Nigeria and they'll still pay for it.
