Around 2017/2018, chatter and news about this very popular Nigerian big boy who went by the name of “Otunba Cash” started floating around. Real name, Emanuel Aneke, this overnight socialite was always hanging out in the best clubs, buying the most expensive bottles of wine, spraying heavy amounts of money on celebrities in shows. He was quote on quote “living the dream”.
Still, there was a big question that loomed over this mysterious man. Who was he, where did he come from, and how did he have all of this money to spend? For a long time people speculated a number of things – some people speculated that he was perhaps related to a rich politician, some people said he had gotten rich through FOREX or some kind of other undisclosed business venture, and then there was the camp of people who speculated that he was a “yahoo boy”. Nobody knew anything really about Otunba Cash and every detail about his life was covered in secrecy and speculation.
This was of course until October of 2018 when EVERYTHING WENT SOUTH for Otunba Cash.
Unbeknownst to Otunba, the Danish police on 9th May 2018 mailed the Turkish police via Interpol, informing them of unauthorized access into a company named GM-Plast’s e-mail. Inside the mail, there was proof that the company had paid huge sums of money into a bank account based in Turkey. So, the Turkish Cybercrime Department opened up an investigation which ultimately led to the arrest of Turkish companies, Turkish ED, ZI and N.M, whose companies were used as a front for the operation. Further probing into the matter revealed that a couple of Nigerians were actually the brains behind this fraud and they were operating under a company named “Istanbul Entertainment”. So, a police operation began in Istanbul and through this operation, on October 18th, there was enough evidence to facilitate the arrest of Emanuel Aneke at a luxury hotel where he was staying with fellow gang members O. Popoola, AA Oyemade, AT Fajolu and BO Balogun.
So how did they do it?
Their game was simple – they impersonated several companies and sent out emails. When they got victims that input their information thinking that they were inputing information into the legitimate companies that they knew and trusted, Otunba and his team used that information to defraud unknowing victims. It’s not a new phenomenon – it’s called phishing and Otunba and his cohorts through not phishing alone but also hacking, were able to steal 1.4 MILLION DOLLARS.
In fact, during the police raid at the luxury hotel Otunba and his cohorts were staying, the police confiscated 17 mobile phones, 15 sim cards, 3 flash drives, 4 computers, 1 memory card, $85,000, €5,000, 5 necklaces, 3 bracelets, 2 handcuffs, 2 rings, 1 earring, 1 Rolex watch, numerous crime documents and a luxury car.
Otunba Cash and his cohorts are reportedly still in prison and are going to be staying there for a very long time. Another real-life lesson that proves that crime does indeed not pay, and no matter how luxurious a life of crime is, it will eventually catch up to you.
