THE YCEO: FBI arrests Forbes under 30 Nigerian entrepreneur, Obinwanne Okeke for $12m fraud ?

FBI arrests Forbes under 30 Nigerian entrepreneur, Obinwanne Okeke for $12m fraud ?
Nigerian social media went into a frenzy after the news of celebrated Nigerian entrepreneur Obinwanne Okeke allegedly arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) hit several platforms.
Okeke who holds a master’s degree in International Relations and counter-terrorism from Monash University Australia is the founder of Invictus Group – a conglomerate in construction, oil, gas and agricultural development.
However, according to Tolu Ogunlesi, Special Assistant on Digital/New Media to the Nigerian President, the FBI did a thorough investigation on the criminal activities of Okeke, which led to his arrest by the law enforcement agency over a $12m fraud.
Ogunlesi stated that “the FBI is charging this young Nigerian ‘Entrepreneur’ with conspiracy to commit Computer Fraud & conspiracy to commit Wire Fraud. BEC stuff. Amount involved appears to be around ELEVEN MILLION US DOLLARS.”
In a series of tweets, Ogunlesi further shared how social media played a role in the investigations conducted by the FBI:

My jaws are on the ground after reading that DOJ Affidavit. Crazy. Social Media played a significant role in the investigations (Twitter, Instagram, Nairaland) - really intriguing stuff. Talk about an unwitting digital footprint. (First 4 pages of DOJ affidavit below)
