Okeke, popularly known as Invictus, is standing trial in the United States of American over an alleged $11.5m cyber fraud.

The 31-year-old Nigerian, was in 2016 celebrated by Forbes as one of Africa’s most outstanding 30 entrepreneurs under the age of 30 and described by the magazine as “proof that there is hope for Africa.”
