Invictus Obi Pleads Guilty to $11 million Wire Fraud in US

Nigerian celebrated Forbes’ under 30 Africa’s most promising entrepreneur, Obinwanne Okeke, popularly known as Invictus Obi has pleaded guilty to $11 million wire fraud on Thursday, according to Premium Times.

According to the report, the 32 years old appeared before Judge Robert Krask, on counts bordering on fraud, forgery, among others on Thursday.

Mr. Okeke, therefore, pleaded guilty after months of legal tussle.

The statement read, “The conspirators obtained and compiled the credentials of hundreds of victims, including victims in the Eastern District of Virginia and elsewhere.

“As part of the scheme, Okeke and others engaged in an email compromise scheme targeting Unatrac Holding Limited, the export sales office for Caterpillar heavy industrial and farm equipment.

“In April 2018, a Unatrac executive fell prey to a phishing email that allowed conspirators to capture login credentials. The conspirators sent fraudulent wire transfer requests and attached fake invoices.

“Okeke participated in the effort to victimize Unatrac through fraudulent wire transfers totaling nearly $11 million, funds which were transferred overseas.

“Okeke pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to commit wire fraud.”

Joshua Stueve, a spokesperson for the United States District Court for Eastern District of Virginia, quoted by the report, said Invictus Obi could spend up to 20 years in American jail despite his plead arrangement.

It would be recalled that in August Investors King had reported the arrest of Invictus Obi by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in connection with an $11 million wire transfer just three years after Okeke became a continental sensation and mentor to several Nigerian youths.

Since his arrest in 2019, FBI, Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Interpol police have arrested several other high profile cybercriminals, including the recent arrest of Hushpuppi in Dubai.

Military Storms Bobi Wine House After He Rejects Election Results

Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, Ugandan presidential candidate in the just concluded presidential race, said the Ugandan military has surrounded his house and even jumped over the fence to take over the compound.

In a quick tweet, the opposition presidential candidate said “My home has been surrounded by soldiers, they’ve jumped over the fence, they’ve taken over my compound, they’ve arrested my security guard.

The invasion was after Bobi Wine had rejected election results and alleged that Thursday’s election was rigged.

He said “every legal option is on the table” to challenge the official results, including peaceful protests. He referred to himself as the “president-elect.”

None of these military intruders is talking to us. We are in serious trouble. We are under siege,” wrote Wine, who was arrested several times during campaigning but never charged while dozens of party members were detained.

Museveni government had cut internet access on the eve of the largely peaceful election day, and it remains off.

According to Uganda’s electoral commission, President Yoweri Museveni leads Wine 62 percent of ballots while Wine had 29 percent. The commission expects to declare the final results on Sunday afternoon.

“We secured a comfortable victory,” Wine said. “I am very confident that we defeated the dictator by far.” He was considering “peaceful and nonviolent protests” over the declared results and said “every legal option is on the table.” Candidates can challenge election results at the Supreme Court.

Heartbroken American Mistress Displays Dangote’s Buttocks in a Viral Video

2021 started with Dangote trending across social media after an obvious heartbroken American mistress shared her relationship with the world’s richest black man.

Bea Lewis, a restauranteur based in Atlanta, Georgia, US, took to her Instagram @iambealewis to share her experience dating the richest black man alive and how he broke her heart into 1000 pieces.

In her words, she said “In my 33rd year, I dated the richest black man in the world. He broke my heart in 1000 pieces.” 

She explained that “I learned more from him than any person I’ve ever met. Communicating with a billionaire daily makes you see the world different than your humble beginnings in liberty city.

“I became more organized and finally am able to step away from the daily kitchen operations.”

Bea Lewis added that Dangote changed her perspective on work ethic and patience.

“Once my mindset changed, the universe gravitated me to people that uplifted me and increased my net worth mentally and financially,” she stated.

She then attached a picture of them together.

However, in another shocking revelation, another American with Instagram handle @allarounda1 posted a video of Mr. Dangote on a couch inside what seems like a luxury yacht after a back and forth argument with Be Lewis on who truly dated the world’s richest black man. It was unclear in which country the yacht was sailing when the mistress took the video, but it clearly showed she shot the video without his knowledge. See the video below.
