Two bank accounts, Invictus Oil and Gas Limited and Invictus Investment Limited, which is said to belong to Obinwanne Okeke, aka Invictus Obi, have been ordered by the Federal High Court in Lagos to have sums of money in them forfeited to the government.

The bank accounts, containing ₦280 million, were said by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to belong to Obinwanne Okeke, “a strong leader of a cyber crime syndicate that specialised in business e-mail compromise,” Punch reports.

The permanent forfeiture was made by Justice Rilwan Aikawa, who had earlier ordered a temporary forfeiture. He said:

I am satisfied that the requirements enumerated under Section 17 of the Advance Fee Fraud and other related Offences Act have been met by the applicant in this suit; consequently, this application is hereby granted as prayed, as it remains unchallenged.

The sum of ₦280.5m found in the bank account of Invictus Investment limited, who is the second respondent in this suit, is hereby forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
