BEVERLY HILLS, June 06, (THEWILL) – Followers and lovers of Nigerian fraudster, Emmanuel Aneke, popularly known as Otunba Cash, will be glad to learn that their mentor has completed his jail term in Turkey and is today a free man. For many who don’t know or can’t recall, Otunba Cash, was arrested in Turkey in October 2018, following a sting operation in connection with a $1.4m e-mail scam.
The fraudster, who is also the CEO of Instanbul Entertainment, was arrested after the Danish police sent a letter to the Turkish Police Department in May 2018, via Interpol, informing them about an unauthorised access made to one GM Plast company’s e-mail address. It was gathered that the company paid money into some accounts in Turkey and an investigation by Turkish Cybercrime Department led to the arrest of Turkish ED, ZI and N.M, whose companies were used as fronts. The investigation further revealed that Nigerians were behind the scam and a simultaneous operation conducted by the police led to the arrest of Emanuel Aneke at a luxury hotel where he was staying with some of his accomplices. Quite a number of luxury items were also confiscated from them. They were promptly charged, tried and sent to jail.
At the peak of his popularity, Otunba Cash had literally acted just like his name. He made a lot of friends in Nigeria’s entertainment industry. While those in the music industry benefited from him as they sang his praise, the women in the industry equally benefited from him as they warmed his bed whenever he came into the country or they traveled to Turkey. We watch with keen interest to see who, among his numerous entertainment friends, will rehabilitate him if and when he is sent back home.
