Serial Entreprenuer Obinwanne Okeke Allegedly Under Investigation by the FBI



On Friday August 16, 2019, social media platform, Instablog9ja, posted the story of Obinwanne Okeke allegedly being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States.

The report included details of criminal actions which defrauded Unatrac Holdings of nearly 11 million US dollars. As indicated in the affidavit in support, deposed by Marshall Ward of the department of justice, the investigation commenced last year and is ongoing.

In 2018, BellaNaija featured Obinwanne Okeke in our Man Crush Monday series. We have now taken the post off our website and it has been deleted off our social media.

We will keep you updated as more information on the investigation unfolds.

    Interestingly enough, I think Bellanaija should use this as a learning point. Poor research into the so-called inspiration touted on this website, along with very poor journal/article audits led to this embarrassing moment right here. You guys dropped the ball and every time his case is mentioned, Bellanaija gets dragged in the mud as well.
    Some heroes will come out to say there is no way they could have known, but that is NOT true. When someone says they did this or that, as a journalist you should be able to fact check!

      There were actually many news outlets that have celebrated this dude. Even world renowned Forbes celebrated him. In this case, poor journalism does not come into play. It is about perspective i.e the angle from which he was being viewed or which he skillfully presented at the time. It is why Harvey Weinstein was celebrated for a long time until hints were dropped. It happens! We are not always going to see people for who they are right away and that is also in the world of journalism. Some are even good at hiding it, it may go on for a long while before we get “woke”. Let us also not forget that these are all still allegations. Thankfully! This is in the States, no corrupt person can use $$$ and influence to sweep this matter under carpet like the “robust response paitor” However, at the end of the day like someone this is bad news for all Nigerians.

    Interesting heading. He is not “allegedly under investigation”. He is under investigation and has been arrested. Nothing to allege. Facts are clear.

    You have a robust reporting tradition but I must advise not to be hasty in whatever decision as he is innocent until proven guilty. How about if he is innocent, would you put back the post. Let’s be guided.

    Someone is of the opinion that Bella Naija should take this as a learning point and do their research before celebrating people. Well it was an indebt FBI investigation that exposed Obiwanne Okeke. Mere research is what made Forbes celebrate him as a young entrepreneur. It’s only natural for indigenous blogs)news to celebrate him as well. Bella Naija has deleted the online content but Forbes can’t recall the hard copies of their magazines that have travelled far. In all… May God help unmask the rest of them and all deceptive people around us.
