Information reaching Naija News House says that EFCC Arrests Suspect For Fraud, Links Him To Cubana Group
The nation’s anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Precious Ofure Omonkhoa following a suspected bitcoin investment fraudulent deal.
The commission’s Head of Media, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.
He said Precious was apprehended in the Ikoyi area of Lagos State, after a credible intelligence about his illicit activities.
Precious allegedly posed as Moshem Cnich, a Swedish national, to defraud unsuspecting victims.
The suspect claimed that he ran a bitcoin scheme where people invest money to make huge returns.
Preliminary investigation, Uwujaren noted, revealed that Precious engaged in a dating scam and had defrauded two victims in Canada.
EFCC Arrests Suspect
“The suspect confessed to have laundered the proceeds of his fraudulent activities by purchasing a piece of land worth $150,000 through bitcoin from CASA-Cubana, a project being run by the Cubana Group”, he said.
Cubana Group is owned by popular socialite, Obinna Iyiegbu better known as Obi Cubana.
It is not certain if the EFCC questioned the businessman about Precious’ transaction with CASA-Cubana during his 4-day interrogation in Abuja.
Uwujaren added that upon his arrest, $50,000 was found in the suspect’s bitcoin wallet.
He will soon be charged to court.
