Six males from Nigeria have been listed as international flight risks by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States.
The suspects are Felix Osilama Okpoh, Abiola Ayorinde Kayode, Alex Afolabi Ogunsakin, Micheal Olorunyomi, Richard Izuchukwu Uzhi, and Nnamdi Orson Benson.
In a public appeal, the FBI said that the sought-after sextuplet “currently resides in Nigeria” and requested the public to get in touch with the local FBI office if they knew where they were.
The people are now the target of an international manhunt after being charged with a number of criminal offences. Their claimed offences range widely and include advanced fee fraud schemes, fraudulent wire transfers, and romance scams.
Olorunyomi was charged with scamming more than 70 American companies, causing losses of more than $6 million. He is also wanted for committing romantic fraud, picking on helpless people, and stealing more than $1 million from them. In November 2019, he was subjected to legal proceedings, which resulted in the issuance of an arrest warrant.
For his alleged involvement in a BEC scheme that deceived many U.S. companies and caused losses of more than $6 million, Kayode is being sought. He is accused of participating in BEC and romance frauds as well as facilitating fraudulent wire transfers. Legal action was initiated against him in August 2019, resulting in a federal arrest warrant.
Benson is wanted for participation in romance and advanced fee fraud schemes, as well as for providing bank accounts for accepting fraudulent wire transactions. According to the FBI, a federal warrant was issued in August 2019 for his arrest.
Uzuh is accused of taking part in a BEC scheme that defrauded many U.S. corporations of more than $6 million, along with co-conspirators. He is also charged with money laundering and working with BEC scheme participants. According to the FBI, a federal warrant was issued on October 19, 2016 for his arrest.
Okpoh is sought after for his suspected involvement in a BEC scheme that cost many American companies more than $6 million. He is charged with supplying bank accounts for fraudulent wire transactions that cost more than $1 million in losses. The FBI issued an arrest warrant against him on August 22, 2019.
Ogunshakin is wanted for his role in a BEC fraud that cost numerous U.S. companies a significant amount of money. He is charged with providing bank accounts for bogus wire transfers and taking part in these scams by sending fake emails. A federal arrest warrant for him was issued on August 22, 2019.
The six alleged offenders are just the latest to join the list of Nigerians involved in frauds and criminal activity. While some are currently in court, others have already been imprisoned.
