No sin will definitely go unpunished, I should say maybe his bad deeds now hunts him. Thank God he finally realized his mistakes and wants to change.
A suspected internet fraudster, Felix Osilama Okpoh, who has been on the radar of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) following his alleged contribution in $6million web scam, has given himself up to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a statement delivered on Monday, the EFCC Head, Media, and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said the commission had initiated an investigation concerning the issue.
He said Okpoh, alongside with Richard Izuchukwu Uzuh, Alex Afolabi Ogunshakin, Abiola Ayorinde Kayode, and Nnamdi Orson Benson, were proclaimed wanted by the FBI in the US at some time last year for their alleged involvement in a Business Email Compromise (BEC) scam that cheated more than 70 organizations in the United States, of over $6million. Which is a lot of money when converted to Nigeria currency.
Uwujaren said the suspect allegedly gave more than 40 ledgers to his backstabbers, which were utilized to get flaudulent wiretransfer from their victims adding up to over $1million.
“He was, on August last year, prosecuted in the United States District Court, District of Nebraska, on charges of conspiracy to perform wire fraud.
“Nonetheless, Okpoh, on Friday, September 18, 2020, handed himself over at the Lagos Zonal Office of the Commission in company of his family, Col. Garuba Okpoh (rtd) and Chief (Mrs.) Justina Okpoh.
“Okpoh, during cross examination, said he made the transition to give up himself to the Commission out of regard he had for his parents and his determination to be ethically upright” adding that he will never go back to leaving such life of deceit and stealing from the people. Though the men of the EFCC are not making investigation into the matter at hand.
