Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” seems to have deleted all his active social media account. (Instagram and Facebook). Also, some of his friends just deleted photos they took with him on their page. So don’t bother searching.
So let get back to how I knew about Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi”.
If you were active on Facebook four years ago, and you aligned with the top influencers then on the platform, there’s 98% chance you must have heard of Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi”.
He was very visible within the Writers/Political/Gossip top influencers group on Facebook. Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” had close friends too, like literally very close friends too who I think knew about his dealings but kept supporting him because they were profiting from it. From known published novelist & writers, journalist, Lecturer. Just many.
Even one of your MCM on Twitter bullied me on Facebook at some point because I tired pointing out something fishy about Obinwanne Okeke AKA Invictus Obi two years ago.
One of his very close friend and right man was also accused of Fraud on Facebook two years ago by people he had dealings with (Nigeria and Abroad). He denied it but truth be told, there’s something fishy about the very young man.
There’s also someone who’s Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” associates too with no trace of his source of his income. He has appeared on International Newspapers and Media too. Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” is just one of the powerful group of guys engaged in this fraud.
There’s another one too. He operates a company here in Nigeria. A tourist/entertainment-related company and an E-commerce of some sort too. He operates mostly from U.S. & Calabar. This particular guy studied in the United States too. Came to Nigeria Five years ago straight from school without any known source of income and launched a tech company. He was Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” right man.
He even bullied me on facebook & called me a poor rat. So I met him at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka when he came to check on a final year Computer Science Student who according to him he needed him to work on a software project. I helped linked him up to the guy at CEC, UNN sha. This is prior to finding out he doesn’t seem legit.
When I reached out to this Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” friend on an update about his project, he blocked me on facebook. A few months later I saw pictures of his newly launched tourism company on Invictus Obi wall.

That dude needs to be investigated sha. Lol. I just check the guy’s Instagram pictures, he has deleted pictures he took with Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi”. I can’t find his facebook but I will dig deep.
Why am I giving out this information? There’s way more serious fraud around Obinwannne’s circle. A well-known celebrity is also on this table too, he visited Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” on the launch of his Energy Company. ( Invictus Energy) in Abuja. He’s Obinwanne ‘s paddy. Dude is living large at the moment with no recent hits to his credit or endorsement/show. He was in the United State when Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” girlfriend/wife gave birth to a child.
He regularly comments on Obi’s Instagram post and he’s the only celebrity that comments on his Instagram post. There’s even a stronger fraud ring at the entertainment industry that uses record labels as a cover-up.
Nigerians, you see this entertainment something is deep. Like very deep. You all do be amazed at the level of fraud in that sector. 80% per cent of fraud attributed to Nigeria and Nigerians are under that sector. Mostly using record label as a cover-up.
My third year in UNN, my CGPA was about 4.59. My aim was first class so I can be retained as a lecturer. But my contact with some of these guys landed me to 2.1. My final year GPA was 2.9. The problem started when I travelled to Abuja to meet Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi”.
I first booked to attend a conference at the ICC, Abuja. After the conference, I tried to link up with him but was later directed to another guy. This dude recently trended on twitter for something cool recently. So he told me that his associates need a quality PHP Developer.
And I needed ten days to get him. I was promised one million(which never happened). So I forgot about book and studies and started looking for the good PHP developer in UNN. I had to travel to Umuahia for the same purpose. Ended getting him, two good software developers. Instead of paying me the money, I got blocked on facebook by this Obi’s friend.
P. S: Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” cabals and associates are highly educated, well exposed and doing good. So they are good at it that is while it’s very much difficult to find out.
Victor seems to be the poster boy of a powerful fraud ring operating East (Owerri, PH, Umuahia). Why him? He can link up with the Umuahia ring operating from the Federal University of Agriculture, Umudike from there you can proceed to ask and Calabar.
We need to fight this fraud of a thing. And they Tech guys need to lead in this fight. These guys are now coming for the tech sector. They are now launching start-ups and companies and are making waves in the press.
I’m trying to get the name of one of the developers I linked up then. This was four years ago. Dude is chilling in Atlanta working on a healthcare startup at the moment. He did his Master at Michigan State University.
He profited from this email fraud as he led the ring from UNN. I was even arrested alongside with him by NDLEA along Umuahia when on my way to Calabar via Uyo with this developer. Reason for the travel was to meet with an Obi’s friends. I was later allowed to go after they found nothing with me. He was detained as they saw a conversation with Obi’s friend on email-related manipulation. But was later released after he gave them some money. This happened around July 2016. November 2019 I got a hint they got fund from a female Filipino journalist who I suspected they defrauded her company.
Info I got suggested that the money was over 700,000USD. The developer guy was paid N4 million and I learnt he got some money too from Obinwanne Okeke AKA “Invictus Obi” and left Nsukka for his Masters at Michigan State University. The guy is in Atlanta working on a health startup.
It is dangerous and unprofessional calling names or handle now. But here’s a tip. Tech guys, is there a way to get an archived version of post deleted on Instagram? If possible, let me know. Nigerians look for Mr Victor that was reported here.
Victor is the only person that can unravel more. He operates in Owerri and Umuahia. Also, check out the company launched few weeks to 2016 Calabar carnival & was active in the process. The company operates on a different front, E-commerce, consultancy, tourism, hospitality etc.
The Facebook post and most importantly the comment section of the post could give you guys a clue. Charles seems to notice his shady lifestyle back then.
The entertainment sector is in mess. Guys are destroying Nigeria and Nigerians name and reputation. 80% of Wire, romance, credit cards fraud are all from them. One recently returned from the United States a few days ago.
They use movies, record labels and music as a cover-up.
So I’m excited about this FBI case. I just found out that one of your favourites MCM here on twitter is linked to this case. I trust the FBI to unravel it.
Even your favourite WCW blogger is also a close friend to Obi. She just deleted the photo her photos with him on Instagram.
Your favourite MCM here also appeared on Forbes online as a respected figure. He helped Obinwanne Okeke to get that press feature on Forbes. Million was spent to get Obi on the cover of that Forbes. Your Favorite WCW blogger knew about the deal. Ask her.
Guys, you remembered this story? This is deep shit. A powerful ring coordinated that shit. They’re your favourite celebrities. They also own a record label and are living large at Lekki. They have smart guys working with them.
The easy way to get close to this issue is to locate Victor O. @jacknicas already did justice to that investigations and gave a name. Law enforcement should find him & trust me, we’ll be close to ending this fraud shit.
This thread was intended on one purpose. To shed light on the fraud in Nigeria.
I’m not a journalist, I don’t have evidence, I admired Obi and his friends on Facebook then. Thought they were legit. Was impressed by his entrepreneur spirit and more.
Please don’t D.M. for details. I don’t have any other than this thread. Law enforcement should work on getting the guy traced to Owerri in this thread 👇
The entertainment industry should be thoroughly investigated. Start from the record labels. There’s a strong ring of big boys doing shady deals in Nigeria. They are all in Lekki, Lagos & Abuja.

Obi’s circle operates from Abuja, UNN, down to Chevron Drive, Lagos. Another group operates directly from the United States down to Calabar and Umuahia. You see, Obi’s fraud will have an impact on ordinary Nigerians, and his trial will expose a lot.
Nigerians, keep your dealing legit. A good name is the ultimate. Most of your celebrity that flaunts their houses and cars are shady. Stay on your lane. Work hard. Protect your name.
I was active in UNN SUG so I was lucky to know some of these kinds of stuff. My final year was an eye-opener on how good these boys are on networking. From OAPs, students, Lecturers, celebrities and in every location. Highly educated, smart, exposed. They called it Social Capitalism.
So the fact is that Facebook led me to know about this. Four yrs ago, I identified a group of friends, who were smart, comments on issues, share ideas, did exploits in different fields. So I loved the group and started reaching to them because I enjoyed their posts and convo. So as someone who wanted to identify with smart folks online started making myself visible by commenting and joining their convo. It was at that point I was able to hook up to some of them in UNN and started making friends. I admired Obi’s entrepreneurs’ success then.
So, I was just commenting on each of his posts. Until a friend in Music Department, UNN linked me up to one of them at CEC, UNN. We interacted, I told him how much they inspire me & blah blah blah. After Convo., lol he left me to see another friend at Lion FM. GS, building. I was the least person among them. I had nothing to show than commenting on their post and following them up then.
Because I wanted to be relevant I joined SUG after the then VC of UNN lifted the ban on SUG. My goal was to just be relevant so I can be worthy of their group.
In the end, I couldn’t because I didn’t get the memo right. I was a book type, from Nnamdi Azikwe Library to Mbanefo hostel then. So I was only relevant to them that month they needed a Php developer. That was the only month I noticed something but wasn’t sure.
They scammed me too. They didn’t pay me for my work of looking for a developer to help me build their website for their company, as they told me. Many of them blocked me as my perspective seems different from theirs. That was the time I knew about them.
The actions of Obi will escalate Nigeria’s risk perception & index plus the tight scrutiny Nigerians will be subjected to and perhaps how it will all affect legit Nigerians doing business. To be a little blunt. Take a close look of your favourites annual celebrity shows.
Those award shows hosted in Lagos, the major sponsors are people like Obi. A friend who was an insider narrated something surprising about a particular show. How the team defraud people and do shady business. They sponsored one show in UNN around that time too.
One of guys dad is a professor at UNN, another guy in the team got his MA in a Film related course in the United Kingdom. Both lives in Lekki, Lagos. They are using show planning, filming and record label as a cover-up.
