“Invictus Obi Is A Snitch” - Nigerians React As FBI Names 80 Nigerians In Fraud by Brika: 9:52am On Aug 23, 2019
Nigerians have accused the founder of Invictus Group, Obinwanne Okeke, of revealing the names of 80 Nigerians listed in fraud charges by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

A 252-count federal grand jury indictment unsealed Thursday charged the 77 Nigerians with participating in a massive conspiracy to steal millions of dollars through a variety of fraud schemes and launder the funds through a Los Angeles-based money laundering network.

FoxMeek reports that FBI had early on Thursday led law enforcement authorities in arresting 14 defendants across the United States, with 11 of those arrests taking place in Los Angeles.

Two defendants were already in federal custody on other charges, and one was arrested earlier this week.

The remaining defendants are believed to be abroad, with most of them located in Nigeria.

The indictment alleges that the defendants and others used various online fraud schemes – including business email compromise (BEC) frauds, romance scams, and schemes targeting the elderly – to defraud victims out of millions of dollars.

Nigerians on Twitter have begun mocking Mr Okeke, accusing him of revealing the names of his accomplices to get lesser sentencing.

FBI doesn't need invictusobi so snitch much. His 'business' email accounts are goldmine of information accumulated over the years. Just a little dig would reveal a lot.

As an Igbo man, I must acknowledge that I am thoroughly ashamed and scandalized after seeing those names on FBI list.

Lately, the concept of EGO MBUTE crept into Igbo society, took its roots and the consequences are showing. Unfortunately, it is celebrated rather than condemned.

I am afraid about the future Image of Igbo as a people. Till today people of Southern region of Italy still carry the stigma of mafia activities and that limits people's willingness to do business with them. In Nigeria, stigma follows Fulani people because of the activities of herdsmen. As a people who survive on commerce and entrepreneurship, the future may be tough in finding partners in United States, Europe and even in Asia because of the stigma these scams will throw up.

Sometimes I wonder, with each shocking revelation we would have reached the limits of our depravity and start acting like fucking sensible human beings with something in our craniums but no!

Every fucking development is a joke to us. Why is the nation so uniquely blessed with retards who think to make a ducking joke out of everything??!??

Maybe FBI showed him the negative comments Nigerians gave to him on Twitter and Facebook and he said," oh no, even chinedu is among?" "I must talk, please help me with pen and paper, and...a tape"

Most people on that list can't run far, this is the FBI. All they need do is to use the CIA to get more information on those nicknames and voom, they will smoke you out.

This was actually premeditated by those of us who are ardent Hollywood fans. Invictus's action is what criminals do when grabbed by the balls by FBI.
