An international fraudster , Obinwanne Okeke better known as Invictus , who was once listed on the Forbes Africa 30 Under 30 will on Tuesday (today ) be sentenced by a Virginia Court in the United States .

Okeke, who was on August 6, 2019 arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation , later pleaded guilty to two charges of Internet fraud in the US that caused $11m losses to his victims. He risks a maximum sentence of 20 years in jail.

The defendant who had investments in oil and gas, agriculture , private equity, alternative energy , telecom and real estate had operated his holdings under the ‘ Invictus Group’ and had presence in three countries including Nigeria, South Africa and Zambia.

The businessman , who was described as an inspiration to many Nigerian youths before he was exposed, is believed to have defrauded American citizens through fraudulent wire transfer instructions in a massive , coordinated , business e- mail compromise scheme.

Last December , a Federal High Court in Lagos ordered the permanent forfeiture of N235, 451, 969 found in his bank account.

If you can do the crime, be ready to do the time. There’s dignity in labor.

Will this make our youths to think twice? I don't think so. No wealth gotten through dubious act can last, I'm very sure of that. Though the beginning may be sweet but the end is destruction. I pray God open the eyes of our youths to see that legitimate living is the only way to prosperity.

In 2017, I saw him on a list of 'Forbe's under 30' most influential people in the world/Africa.

I was a young graduate then at age 23. I was depressed. Thinking about when I will be that successful. Or whether I will ever made that list before I am 30.

Hmmm I don't know. But then, I will rather not make that list than make the list and later languish in infamy .
