Widely known within the social circles as the new Nigeria’s king of money, self-styled Osita David, of K.D.Likeminds has finally been unmasked by police detectives attached to the G7 Team, an arm of the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department, Alagbon Close, Lagos as a crook with multiple identities.
Dependable sources at the police apex criminal investigations unit informed our dog -eared correspondent that prior to the arrest of the suspect, the police at Alagbon had received various letters of complaints from the victims of the arrested alleged fraudster, detailing how Osita David had played the fast one on the Intelligence of many Nigerians.
The suspect’s mode of operation was to place advertisements at some public places informing Nigerians of the need for them to invest little money and get big dividends in 30 days.
While doing this, the suspect’s foot soldiers would be going around with handbills to smooth-talk individuals on the financial benefits accrued from such a business venture that takes little or no labour to harvest.
He reportedly told his victims that, his company was into “Estate Affairs, Bureau- de -change operations, Financial Affairs, Sand mining, Motor-parts, Agriculture and a host of other money-spinning concerns.
We exclusively gathered that Osita David, also known as King of money, was so fortunate in the non-existence scheme to the extent that, within a short period of time, thousands of gullible investors who swallowed his baits hook, line, and sinker started pouring in millions of naira.
While Osita David was smiling to the bank on daily basis, his victims waited patiently for the 30 days ultimatum for them to get returns on their investment that never came.
Beyond this, the suspect soon forgot his promise to the investors as he started acquiring state-of-the-art automobiles, choice properties across the states of the federation.
On the maturity date, he reportedly paid some dividends to those that were ready to make trouble in the event that the suspect reneged on his promise.
Continuing, the source said: ” before long, Osita David would tell other investors some cock and bull stories on why there had been a delay in the payments”.
When it becomes glaring that Osita was playing on their intelligence, they made complaints to the police at Alagbon, who stormed the suspect’s residence with a warrant of arrest.
On interrogation, the suspect told detectives that, he had made full preparations to jet out of the country but for their timely intervention.
Confirming the story to our correspondent, Mr.Galadanchi, an Assistant Inspector General of Police at the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department(FIID) Alagbon, Lagos said that, the suspect would be taken to court at the end of the investigation.
