Undercover investigations at the Ikoyi prisons

Excerpts of the undercover investigations at the Ikoyi prisons by Fisayo Soyombo who spent two weeks in detention

…..While in prison, I’d exchanged contacts with an awaiting-trial inmate who had promised to reach out once he regained freedom. True to his words, he called on the day he exited Ikoyi Prison. Weeks after, I drove about 340km out of Lagos to meet up with him.

“I saw how you were beaten up in prison and I didn’t want you to suffer in vain,” he says as we exchanged handshakes, each sizing the other up for elements of trust. “I’m going to help you by giving you additional information to what you already have. But this will be a very brief meeting, and this will be the only time ever you’d see me. That’s the best way for me to stay alive, because I know these bad guys will come after me if they trace any information to me.”

He explains that the special accommodation mentioned by the prison warders in court, which I was shielded from seeing, is called ‘Nicon Luxury’. It’s an apartment where inmates pay between N20,000 and N50,000 for a night’s sleep, plus access to cigarettes, drinks, Indian hemp, drugs and girls.

“The apartment has air conditioners, good couches and mattresses; meanwhile, 118 inmates are packed like sardines into one room that should normally hold 30 inmates. Those at Nicon are not only political prisoners or people of influence; just people who have the money.”

He describes the unfair world that the prison is, with only the poor truly imprisoned while the rich live fine.

“There is a lot of impunity in the prison,” he says. “An inmate, so long he is rich, can have almost everything, even sex. Inmates sleep with prostitutes. If you want to have sex, just tell the warders. They will bring a girl to the Nicon Luxury for you, set the two of you up; you f**k, you pay. It’s that easy,” he reveals.

“There is free flow of drugs in prison, which is impossible without the facilitation or compromise of warders. You’ll find Colorado [a hard drug] in huge sale; I took it myself. I paid just N5,000 each time I wanted it. Tramadol and refnol are sold, too, but Colorado is the highest in demand.

“Look at Vaseline, it is a very scarce commodity in prison but it is available at expensive rates for use in sodomy. At Ikoyi Prison, the powerful inmates sodomise the others, and it happens right under the nose of prison authorities. They know that these things happen. But, you see, the warders are the problem — because inmates do not have access to the outside world, and those coming from outside are screened from head to toe. Therefore, nothing can enter the prison without the knowledge of warders.”

The Undercover Operation – Is it Safe?

Presently every one of the arrangements have been made for a safe covert activity. The activity is considered significant. The perfect individuals are chosen. The arranging is finished. Next is simply the activity. How might it be executed as securely as could be expected?

Reconnaissance is vital to a safe covert activity. Reconnaissance ought to be begun a long time before the expected gathering time. Time and again observation is set up just minutes before the gathering time. Or on the other hand, more awful yet, the secret gathering really begins while the reconnaissance units are in transit. It requires some investment for observation officials to glance around, acclimate themselves with the district, discover a spot to set up and impart their area and field of vision to different units. No covert gathering should start until all the reconnaissance units are gotten comfortable place and have checked in with the road manager. On the off chance that the secret officials come into potential harm before their defensive observation units are set up, they are in isolation and would not benefit from outside input. The reconnaissance units ought to be continually mindful of any progressions in the area that may undermine the security of the officials, for instance, counter-observation or hindering activity by different vehicles. On the off chance that the addresses of the suspects are known, reconnaissance units ought to go there to learn of their exercises before the arranged gathering. They may locate extra presumes who could be a danger to the covert officials.

Secret activities don’t generally succeed. Once in a while law breakers can’t acquire the medications or persuade their cause of supply to follow the settled upon plan. Different occasions the hoodlums never mean to supply the stash, yet are searching for the opportunity to rip off the covert officials.

An activity that is wanted to last a specific measure of time, even with recompenses for ordinary deferrals, may must be ended for a really long time. At the point when arrangements stretch endlessly it very well may be on the grounds that the hooligans are attempting to move the secret officials into a circumstance where the official can be hurt. The hoodlums may endeavor to take cash or accept their achieve to be cops.

Therefore you may need to considered carefully the risk involved in an undercover operation before embarking on one.

The FBI has arrested 28-year-old Obinwanne Okeke, the CEO of Invictus Group for a $11 million wire fraud

Published

The FBI has arrested 28-year-old Nigerian Businessman, Obinwanne Okeke, the CEO of Invictus Group for a $11 million wire fraud, which was executed by hacking into a steel company’s CEO’s Office365 account. He was in the 2016 Forbes Africa 30 Under 30.

The Invictus Obi’s saga is disheartening not because another Nigeria yet again has been busted for fraud, it’s disheartening because the rippling effect will be enormous.
A lot of Nigerians are going to pay for yet another scandal by a single Nigerian.

Thing is Obinwanne was not just another average Nigerian, he had a CV and portfolio that was envied on even by the international community.

Visits Nigerian entertainment forum on https://naijafans.com to start conversation, discuss and reply comments

 

He was looked upon as one of the bright spots to come out of this dark hellish place called Nigeria.

Obinwanne Okeke (Invictus) was one of the supposed few answers to the damning question of can anything good come out of Nigeria?

Featured by Forbes as one of the Forbes 30 under 30.
He’s been on BBC, given a Ted Talk, Spoke at London school of Economics Africa Summit.
Has a conglomerate spanning across many African countries dealing on oil, agriculture, infrastructure, solar energy etc.
Had a lot of International awards celebrating his achievements

With this sort of portfolio and at 32yrs, he was seen as this bright spark coming out from a country that has more trends for despicable things than amiable ones.

Only to find out that beneath all this facade was a fraudster. A serial one.

An international corporate yahoo boy with suits and a great CV to match.
Estimated to have stolen $20-$22million from US companies from 2011 till date.

There was always that gaping hole in his story about his start up capital that gave an itch of not adding up.
But then we gave benefit of the doubt as we usually do even to our own collective detriment in a bid not to come across as a hater.

He fooled a lot of people and that for a long time. Make no mistake about it, he’s going to pay for his crimes. But he isn’t my concern.

You can’t help but feel for other innocent Nigerians that are going to pay for the crimes of Obinwanne too.

Obinwanne would be in his prison scrub for a long time serving his time.

While other Nigerian out there will be getting Visa denied even after meeting and surpassing all the requirements.

Other Nigerians would have to work twice as hard to earn a modicum of trust and respect within the international community.

International organizations are going to pull out of deals the moment they become aware a Nigerian is part of the deal.

International airports will be a lot more hostile than they already are the moment they see you with that almost worthless green passport.

More companies will start declining cards coming from this part of the world.

Nobody wins here, not you, not me.

Imagine one of the few people who had earned the trust and admiration of the international community being busted for fraud.
What is your fate being an average John Doe or Jane Doe?

While Obinwanne is going to pay for his crimes inside the walls of a correctional facility.

You are going to pay for his crimes in embassy halls, airports, business meetings, immigration offices etc.

It will be no fault of yours, you would probably have all the requirements but still would be treated as an infidel.

When one of your supposed brightest minds has been busted as a fraud.

What are your chances?

Nobody won here.

We all lost.

~ Prince Uzor Onyemaobi
