A US based Nigerian who was celebrated by Forbes as one of the most influential African businesspeople under 30, Obinwanne Okeke, known as Invictus Obi has bagged a 10-year jail term in the US.

A US court sentenced the Nigerian businessman for running a cyber fraud scheme that stole at least $11m (£8m) from its victims.

Invictus Obi used Nigerian-based companies to defraud people in the US state of Virginia.

His Invictus Group companies used phishing emails to capture people’s login details and take their funds between 2015 and 2019.

Okeke was arrested in August 2019
