In the past few days, the social media has been thrown into a frenzy after the 32-year-old Okeke was arrested in the US by the FBI for an alleged conspiracy to commit fraud to the tune of $12m.
In reaction to the news, Bisi Alimi took to his social media handles to say that several Nigerians have the bad habit of attributing their success to God’s grace even though it is another name for 419.
Read what he wrote here:
“Nigerians have this stupid fraudulent act of saying “It’s by God’s grace” when you ask them the secrets of their success. Well, it is now very clear, thanks to Obinwenne Okeke, that God’s grace is another word for 419.
There is nothing like God’s grace, stop deceiving people. It is either you have made it through hard work, connections or family wealth, and you have a right to share your secret or not to share your secret.”
