FBI Petitions EFCC To Arrest Couple Over Alleged $1.49m Money Laundering Scheme

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Lagos office has arrested a couple, Rowly Isioro, a former Assistant General Manager with one of the first generation banks and his wife, Ovuomarhoni Naomi Isioro , a business woman, for their alleged involvement in Business Email Compromise fraud and money laundering.

The couple allegedly laundered the total sum of one million and forty-nine thousand Dollars ($1.49m) through Ovuomarhoni Naomi’s bank account in Nigeria.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday.

He explained, “Their arrest followed a petition received by the Commission from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, through the office of the Legal Attache, United States Consulate, Lagos, about their alleged involvement in computer-based fraud, stealing and money laundering.

“So far, investigation revealed that Naomi met one Michael Uziewe (who is still at large) in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America, sometime in 2016, and introduced her to foreign exchange business.

“Through this encounter, Naomi and her banker husband turned their two registered companies,Marhoni General Services Limited and Multaid Plus Limited, into conduit for the dispersal of funds wired by Uziewe, who allegedly owns Global Investment network.

“Naomi, in statements volunteered to the Commission, confirmed she had been receiving monies in Dollars, with instructions to pay the naira equivalent into accounts provided by Uziewe.

“Facts have also emerged that each time Naomi receives the Dollar transfers, she makes over the counter withdrawals, in breach of financial regulations that such transactions go through the financial system, and sell them to Bureau de Change operators for Naira equivalents.

“Rowly Isioro, a banker of over 22 years experience has also confessed that he was aware that someone his wife met in United States of America, sends her Dollars, while she pays the naira equivalent to various accounts on the instruction of the US-based partner.
He was allegedly relieved of his appointment with the bank as a result of his involvement in the money laundering scheme.”

  1. FBI now working with EFCC to clamp down on criminals? Osetigo!

    1. Please who now has clean money in Nigeria? this one tha FBI and EFCC is clamping down on alot of people like this.
      I know we still have legit millionaires and billionaires in Nigeria.

  2. Its obvious that the law is for the downtrodden and ''weak people'' of the society...Its time for EFCC to also go after the banks as well...Whenever you visit a bank, you will see that frame concerning financial fraud and cash withdrawal limits for individual and corporate accounts yet it is the so called ''big men'' that breach that same law...Wakanda country is this??

  3. This is normal business now. Let EFCC go after the main 'gods'. abeg. They know the truth but them fit?
