Becareful who you aspire to be out there. These guys are doing the extreme to make it look like what you see in the internet. with being said, another one has been indicted by the Ikeja high court over a reported Internet fraud. Read the post below from instablog on the he issue.

plus Hunger has made it very hard for rules to be followed, and it even got worse this time around, as the lockdown has cut the income of alot of Nigerians, and that has pulled out the survival instinct in people, thereby driving people into doing things that they would ordinarily stay away from, but hunger is strong.

Fake #ChurchMiracle Lady gets arrested by the Nigerian #Police

instablog9ja-1583606071354

The woman whom many have tagged “The fake miracle lady” has finally been arrested by the Nigerian police, while leaving the pastors who employed her services to receive their congregation.

The Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT) in Lagos have arrested 44-year-old woman, Bose Olasukanmi, who was used by several pastors to perform fake miracle in their churches, Guardian reports.

The woman’s fake miracle was brought to light in October, 2019, after several videos of her being ”healed” of her bad hand, surfaced online. .

According to Guardian, Olasukanmi recounted how she got into the business. “It started after an accident that say everyone abandoning me. It was under this condition that I met one Fatila Musa. .

She told me that I should use what I have to get what I want. She taught me how to carry my hand and how to bring it down in such a way that the congregation would believe me.. .

After a one-day rehearsal, she took me to a pastor at Calvary Close, Ogba, Lagos. She said the name of the church is Radiant Army Deliverance Ministry a.k.a Anthony Anthony.

The first day I performed, I got N9, 000. Life became sweet as the pastors were happy with my performance. I cannot remember the names of all the churches she took me to.

I am a moslem. My only regret is that I knew that it was a fake miracle performance, which deceived many genuine children of God and enriched the fake miracle performing pastors and prophets.

It is this same fake miracle performance I was involved in that made my father to get stroke when he heard that they were using me to make money. In the first performance I got N9, 000, 2nd performance N7, 000, third performance N10, 000. .

In Port Harcourt I got N10, 000, N7, 000 and N15, 000 while in Abakaliki, I performed only once before IRT operatives stormed there and arrested me.

My advice to people who go to church is that they should open their eyes well and know the type of church they are worshipping. If they are careful, they would discover on time whether they are in a genuine church or with fake pastors and prophets.” she said.

I didn’t commit fraud on U.S soil. #FBI searched me illegally – #ObinwanneOkeke

premiumtimes-1582529613360

Seems he has found his voice after all this time. But we can only watch this unfold. There is only so much that he can try, obviously. His case with with the FBI now, and we can’t help him with anything to be honest.

CEO of Invictus Group and Forbes-celebrated Nigerian man, #ObinwanneOkeke, who is facing two counts of $11m computer and wire fraud in the U.S, has filed a prelimnary objection to the charges. .

According to PremiumTimes, #Invictus, through his lawyers, stated that the American authorities lacked jurisdiction to charge him for fraud as he did not commit the offense in America, neither was any American companies or individuals defrauded.

But prosecutors dismissed the lack of jurisdiction argument as frivolous because Mr Okeke visited the U.S. and stayed in Virginia during the period he allegedly committed the $11 million fraud, which spanned several months.

They also said more victims who are Americans may still be introduced during trial, saying their indictment filing was only to show enough grounds for a judge to issue a warrant for Mr Okeke to be arrested.

His lawyers also accused FBI agents of accessing his mobile phones and laptops illegally and without proper procedure, an act they claimed was enough to get the charges dismissed. .

They were also accused of  telling him to unlock his iPhone and Macbook Pro without first reading him his Miranda rights which involves telling him he has the right to remain silent and not cooperate with authorities.

Prosecutors however insisted that Okeke was told he could remain silent, but he willingly agreed to let authorities search his devices by providing passwords to them. .

They also affirmed that even without reading him his Miranda rights as his lawyers claimed, the evidence collected from his phone cannot be dismissed because they only corroborated evidence already collected in the year-long investigation into his alleged involvement in the $11 million fraud.

But both parties agreed that the court should approve additional time for preliminary matters to be resolved and Mr Okeke to remain in custody until trial evential begins.
