Obinwanne Okeke, the 31-year-old Nigerian held by American authorities for alleged fraud, entered a plea of not guilty to two counts of wire and computer fraud at his first hearing on Monday.

The presiding judge at the Newport News, Virginia, federal courthouse, declared the case as “complex,” but said Mr Okeke should be remanded in prison until February 18, 2020 when the trial would continue. He appeared in court at about 2 p.m. and waived his right to a speedy trial.



The appearance came a week after a federal grand jury examined the evidence gathered by the F.B.I. and presented by the United States Department of Justice and found Mr Okeke guilty as charged and recommended him for trial.

Upon conviction, the jury also said Mr Okeke should be made to forfeit at least $11 million in asset and an emerald shaped diamond engagement ring found on him when he was first arrested by federal agents as he was about leaving the U.S. on August 6.

The Monday’s appearance marked the commencement of Mr Okeke’s criminal trial since he was arrested and remanded in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service more than a month ago.

IF THINK THAT THE FBI IS WEAK AND NONFUNCTIONAL, YOU DECEIVE YOURSELF. THE FBI HAS BEEN WATCHING AND MONITORING ALL YOUR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES RIGHT FROM DAY ONE. YOU ARE DONE! YOU ARE JUST A CHEAP AND COMMON CRIMINAL.

PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE REASON WHY INNOCENT, GOOD AND HARDWORKING NIGERIANS OVERSEAS ARE SEEN AS CRIMINALS WHILE WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS. AT 31 YEARS OLD YOU WILL LANGUISH IN JAIL. THE QUESTIONS NOW ARE, WAS IT REALLY WORTH IT AFTER ALL? WHY DO I GO FROM HERE?

YOU IGNORANTLY SAT SOMEWHERE, FORGING DOCUMENTS AND BREAKING INTO THE ACCOUNTS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE, STEALING THEIR MONIES FROM THEM DOING ALL SORTS OF ILLEGAL BUSINESSES, AND YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO TURN AROUND TO TELL THE WORLD THAT YOU HAVE MADE IT SUCCESSFULLY BY HUSTLING AND DOING GENUINE BUSINESSES APPEARING ON MAGAZINES SPLASHING CURRENCIES, NEWSPAPERS, SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOU EXPECT THE AMERICAN AUTHORITIES TO HAIL YOU. THE WORSE ANYONE CAN LIVE IS LIFE IN THE FAST-LANE.

GOD DOESN'T SLEEP. I ONLY FEEL FOR YOUR PARENTS.
