Obinwanne Okeke, Nigerian entrepreneur Obinwanne Okekewho is an honoree of Forbes Africa 30 Under 30 has been arrested by the FBI for fraud.

Obinwanne Okeke who is widely known as Invictus Obi, Okeke was found guilty of causing approximately $11 million in known losses to his victims between 2015 and 2019. He had earlier pleaded guilty to the crimes in June.

According to a report sighted, he has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for computer and wire fraud by an American court.

“Through subterfuge and impersonation, Obinwanne Okeke engaged in a multi-year global business email and computer hacking scheme that caused a staggering $11 million in losses to his victims,” said Raj Parekh, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

“Today’s sentence further demonstrates EDVA’s and FBI’s worldwide reach in vigorously pursuing justice on behalf of American victims and others and holding international cybercriminals accountable, no matter where they commit their crimes.”

Okeke, the founder of Invictus Group, has a degree in International Studies and Forensic Criminology and Masters of International Relations and Counter-Terrorism Studies from Monash University in Australia, according to his official profile.

As part of the scheme, 33-year old Okeke and other conspirators 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, which was transferred overseas. “The FBI will not allow cyber criminals free reign in the digital world to prey on U.S. companies,” said Brian Dugan, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Norfolk Field Office.

“This sentencing demonstrates the FBI’s commitment to working with our partners at the Department of Justice and our foreign counterparts to locate cyber criminals across the globe and bring them to the United States to be held accountable.”

Okeke was named on the Forbes Africa’s 30 Under 30 For 2016 and was featured on the magazine’s June 2016 cover. A year later, CNBCA named Okeke as a finalist for Young Business Leader of the Year (West Africa). He was featured regularly in Nigerian and international media. Okeke also earned high praises from Nigerian politicians.

Mourinho, upon hearing of Solksjaer’s comments then offered a withering rebuke at Solksjaer, questioning his fatherhood.

“I just want to say Son is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole because I think a father – and I am a father – you have always to feed your kids. It does not matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal.” An angry Mourinho said.

“I am very, very disappointed. With me, like we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese, have told Ole already what I think of his comments.

“I told Ole already this because I met him a few minutes ago. If it was me saying that player A, B or C from another club – if, as he says that if it was my son that I won’t give him dinner tonight or something like that – what would be the level of the reaction.

“First of all let me tell you something. I am very, very surprised that after the comments Ole made on Sonny, you don’t ask me about it.

“It is very, very sad and I think it is really sad that you don’t ask me about it. It is really sad that you don’t have the moral honesty the same way as you treat others.”

No Pastor In Ghana Can Face Me : Avraham Moshe Tells Maame Grace

Published

on

Religious nonconformer and leader of Common Sense Family, Avraham Ben Moshe has openly challenged Ghanaian pastors to dare attempt to deliver him if they believe God called them.

He further stated that Avraham Moshe will rather deliver any Christian pastor who tries to convert him.

Avraham Moshe spoke exclusively on GHOne TV’s Revelation with host Apostle Maame Grace.

On the same show which was in two episodes that aired on Sunday, April 2020, Avraham opened up for the first time about his beginnings and his family history on Revelations with Maame Grace.

Described as a counterculturist of all religions, Avraham Ben Moshe gave details about his Muslim parents and how he started as a young Christian preacher.

During the explosive interview, Avraham Moshe proclaimed that God has not spoken to any man on earth before. ” With the over 7 billion humans on earth, God has never spoken to anyone before since the beginning of time. He has not spoken to any pastor before. ” – Avraham Moshe told Apostle Maame Grace on Revelations.

He said that humans have been given different forms of senses, therefore, it is only the sense of a person that speaks to him or her, not God or any divine entity.

Avraham Moshe exploded further to say that, African gods are supposed to worship humans not the other way round.

We cannot speak for the many shocking things Avraham Moshe said in Revelations, but we can only caution that you listen when making your conclusion.

Revelations on GHOne TV is a private television show owned by Global Eagle Revival Outreach Ministry in Ghana, headed by Apostle Maame Grace who is the host of the show.

Revelations seek to deliver God by unearthing dark secrets of the spiritual world that usually takes us away from the lord of God through his son Jesus Christ.

The show has seen its third season for over 3 years on television and it has grown a very massive following especially on social media.
