The defendant admitted to laundering the proceeds of his fraudulent activities by acquiring a piece of land worth $150,000USD through bitcoin from CASA-Cubana, a project sponsored by the Cubana Group, after his detention.

A bitcoin wallet containing $50,000 USD was discovered during his detention.

Omonkhoa allegedly posed as Moshem Cnich, a Swedish national, to defraud unsuspecting victims of their hard- earned money by claiming that he runs a bitcoin scheme, where people invest money to make huge returns.

Preliminary investigation also revealed that the suspect engaged in a dating scam and had defrauded two victims in Canada.

The suspect will soon be charged to court.
