Here's how Nigerians are reacting to the arrest of Forbes-rated billionaire, Invinctus Obi Okeke by FBI for €10.82 million (N4.3bn) fraud


To say Nigerians are disappointed and heart broken with the news of the arrest of Forbes-rated young Nigerian billionaire and CEO of Invictus Group, Obinwanne Okeke will be an understatement.

Obi was arrested by America's Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over a €10.82 million (N4.3bn) fraud. He was arrested last week on the last day of his trip to the United States for allegedly defrauding top American companies of huge sums.

According to court documents, he allegedly scammed €10.82m from a steel company by hacking into an executive’s office365 account and sending an email with a fake invoice to the purchase department.

His arrest came after Special Agent Marshall Ward of the FBI and the team he heads opened up an investigation in July 2018, following a petition by Unatrac Holding Limited.
