Court orders seizure of Invictus Obi’s houses, cars

A Federal High Court in Lagos has directed a temporary forfeiture of houses and cars linked to convicted cybercriminal Obinwanne George Okeke also known as Invictus Obi.

Justice Peter Lifu gave the directive on October 29, 2021 sequel to an ex parte motion filed and argued by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) counsel Chineye Okezie.

Invictus Obi was sentenced to a 10-year prison term in America for his involvement in a computer-based intrusion fraud scheme amounting to $11 million.

The houses are at House 4 Oakville Estate, Kado Kuchi, and Standard Estate, Kabusa, Abuja.

The vehicles are a Toyota Corolla with Registration Number: RBC6238N and an unregistered Toyota Corolla Sport.

According to the EFCC, the properties will be used to restitute foreign victims of Invictus Obi’s fraud through the United States of America Consulate.

The judge also ordered that the Commission should publish the order in a widely read newspaper in Nigeria within 14 days for any interested party to show cause why the order should not be permanently made.
