EFCC nabs Precious Ofure, an ally of Cubana, over $200K Bitcoin fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested one Precious Ofure Omonkhoa over an alleged bitcoin investment scheme.

In a statement Friday, Wilson Uwujaren, Head of Media, EFCC, said Precious was nabbed in the Ikoyi area of Lagos following credible intelligence about his illegal activities.

Precious allegedly posed as Moshem Cnich, a Swedish national, to defraud unsuspecting victims.

Preliminary investigation, Uwujaren noted, revealed that Precious engaged in a dating scam and had defrauded two victims in Canada.

“The suspect confessed to have laundered the proceeds of his fraudulent activities by purchasing a piece of land worth $150,000 through bitcoin from CASA-Cubana, a project being run by the Cubana Group”, he said.

Cubana Group is owned by popular socialite, Obinna Iyiegbu better known as Obi Cubana. It is not yet certain of the bust is related to Cubana’s recent interrogation by operatives of the anti0graft agency.

Uwujaren added that upon his arrest, $50,000 was found in the suspect’s bitcoin wallet, noting that he will soon be charged to court.
