The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the final forfeiture of N280,555,010 belonging to Obinwanne Okeke, popularly known as Invictus Obi.

Justice Rilwan Aikawa made the order of final forfeiture on Thursday following the submissions of the EFCC Counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo.

The money will be forfeited to the Federal Government.

The funds were linked to the Nigerian bank accounts of Invictus Oil and Gas Limited and Invictus Investment Limited, respectively.

Invictus Obi was recently arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in connection with a cyber-crime syndicate that specialises in business e-mail fraud.

Obi is standing trial in the United States for allegedly defrauding some American citizens in 2018 to the tune of $11m.
