Obinwanne Okeke To Forfeit $11 Million, Diamond Ring and Faces 30 Years Prison by Mrcomedimatic: 7:49am On Sep 12
Obinwanne Okeke, the Abuja-based Nigerian businessman who was arrested on August 6 in the U.S. and slammed with two counts of computer and wire fraud has been indicted for $11 million fraud.

The indictment which is the initial process before the commencement of his trial was backed by the investigation of the U.S. Department of Justice conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

If found guilty of the charges, it was recommended that he forfeits at least $11 million in cash and asset. The emerald cut engagement ring found on him when he was arrested, was also added to the list of items to be forfeited.

The recommendation came after the conclusion of investigation while he was still in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. The grand jury set up to look into the investigation, returned with an indictment of Mr Okeke for the $11 million fraud on September 9.

The Nigerian businessman listed among Forbes 100 Most Influential Young Africans in 2018, faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted. It is expected that he will enter a plea deal during the commencement of his trial on September 16.

Mates! It takes a whole lot of energy and hard work.Yes hard work to scam another.You have to lie,cover up withhalf truths,invest in high level dishonesty and a lot of self deception to keep up with the tempo.Truth is that same energy would have been used to do something innovative,productive and trust me even if you are not applauded someday you will be.
For every Champion that wins genuinely,there is always a preparation stage.The stage through which you have to pass through the fire to be refined and become Gold.


For every hard working and honest Youth who wakes up and feel unworthy and not appreciated, very soon your time will come.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS WON BY DAYS OF PREPARATION WITHOUT RECOGNITION AND APPLAUSE.THE PRIZE IS HOWEVER WON BY THE ONE WHOSE TIME TO SHINE WAS THAT MOMENT.

Meanwhile,Invinctus Obi ....................one day is always for the owner.For the families who have lost their daily bread while you were popping champagnes and having lavish parties with nude ladies in luxurious hotels around the world flexing with ill-gotten wealth.Enjoy your stay!

I trust the fbi, criminal cases are not swept under the carpet unlike the Bushes called countries in Africa. Just take for example, nobody heard about Evans anymore, a notorious kidnapper oh, nor did we hear from rev king, a serial killer, Naira Marley paid his bail fee and that was the end of it.

Politicians can steal any amount of money they want, even if they go to jail, they don't forfeit Shi Shi. So any politician can confidently come and steal and do the jail time and be made for life.


Welcome to the shithole!

A perfect description of our abode by Trump!

He is nothing but a fraudster. Send him to jail asap.

You claimed Nigeria isn’t conducive and left for another country where things are conducive but still ended up doing crime. Nigeria is not your problem, crime is in your blood.

To all those dragging the name of this country in the mud all over the world, may the day of judgement come to them sooner than later.

This is the standard and usual end to the crave for reaping where one hadn't sown into.

Whatever acquired crookedly lasts but for a while until you'd be forced back on the queue of life to start learning the rudiments of honest living if you so desire or else, a vicious cycle of rigmarole is what you'll be faced with.

Let's learn to live and earn right...

The quest for quick wealth without breaking much of a legal sweat is doing more harm than good to us a people and nation.

cheesy

whichever way you try to see it
fraud doesn't pay
yes it can give you that luxury life for a time being but on a long run it'll will surely come back to hurt you
so whichever way you try to see it
it doesn't pay
yes one may decide to quit and invest the money in legit business but one thing about fraud case is that it might take decades to come back to hunt you and the worst part is that if convicted you'll loose everything including those you got legitimately including prison terms

there's nothing more noble as legit hustle even if it doesn't make you that extremely rich with luxury but you'll be more comfortable and proud knowing that you're spending your sweat with peace of mind.

sometimes I wonder how these yahoo guys feels knowing that the money they're lavishing in the club is someone's else life savings or medical allowances.
the worst and most annoying part is that they'll be giving attributes and glory to God intimidating the legit ones thereby putting unnecessary pressure to them.


God bless all legit hustlers
the gift of man shall maketh a way for him
we must hammer
