Twitter Explodes after Invictus Obi’s Arrest by FBI

Forbes-celebrated Nigerian young entrepreneur, Obinwanne Okeke popularly known as Invictus Obi, has dominated the headlines over the past 24 hours – for all the wrong reasons.

Viral reports on Friday say Invictus Obi is being charged with conspiracy to commit computer fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud and he was allegedly arrested during a visit to the US by the FBI.

A darling of Nigerian celebrities and artistes – including a-listers like Wizkid and Banky W – Invictus Obi has become the butt of all jokes in the wake of his stunning arrest.

In the wake of his fall from grace, Nigerians have been reacting on Twitter, with some condemning his alleged fraudulent act, while others called on the Nigerian security agencies to learn from the FBI.

Many have also called out the celebrities for their double standard. Citing the case of Naira Marley with the EFCC, Nigerians claimed the celebrities would be beside themselves with rage and call for his release were he arrested by local security agencies.

Some also argued that the celebrities are being careful not to soil their names because of the gravity of the allegations levelled against him, as this may hinder some of them from entering the US.

Popular fashion blog Bella Naija has also reportedly deleted a 2018 post where it celebrated Obi as its ‘Man Crush Monday’ (MCM).
