Nigerians have taken to Twitter to display memes trolling a Nigerian entrepreneur featured in Forbes magazine and recently arrested by the FBI over conspiracy to commit $12m fraud.
When Nigerians make internet memes, no-one’s feelings are spared as Forbes magazine, which featured the fraud suspect in their “30Under30” segment, and former presidential candidate, Abubakar Atiku, are dragged into the memes.
The question now is, in what way has "Invictus" inspired Invictus Obi a.k.a Obinwanne Okeke? Your guess is as good as mine.

Mr. Obinwanne Okeke had two personalitites
Invictus Obi that aspires to acquire so as to inspire your desire
Then there is Convictus Obi that Acquire your card, so he can wire and build his empire.
Let's not confuse the two, They caught Convictus Obi not Invictus Obi.

In 24hrs, 2 Nigerians dented the image of our dear country.
1. Samson Siasia who was banned from football for life by FIFA due to bribery.
2. Obinwanne Okeke aka Invictus Obi arrested by FBI for committing internet fraud.
Again, being legit & contented is underated.

This user questions Forbes’ due diligence:
Don’t envy People with money, some legit, some stole, had sex for it, killed for it.
How can you not investigate @forbesafrica?

Even the Economic and Financial Crimes Commision were not spared:
I think Nigeria EFCC should be trained by FBI on how to develop such a careful and incontrovertible evidence on fraudsters
