Opinion: Why Invictus Obi's Reasons For Kicking Against Comparisons With Hushpuppi Is Justified.

Convicted Nigerian fraudster, Obinwanne Okeke popularly known as Invictus Obi, has kicked against the comparisons between him and Hushpuppi, describing it as 'very annoying'. He claims he created jobs, changed lives and even conquered the business world, unlike Hushpuppi who spent his money on luxurious lifestyle and did not help anyone. While this may have generated quite a number of reactions, it is important to understand that his reasons are justified and here is why;

Before his arrest, he had a company called the 'Invictus Group', which claimed to have diversified business interests cutting across oil and gas, construction, energy solutions, technology and agriculture. Okeke even earned so many recognitions, both home and abroad, he was regularly featured in both local and international media, including Forbes Africa's 30 under 30.

Invictus was also a serial philanthropist, he had a foundation which sponsored young people on scholarships (according to Wikipedia). The 34 year-old is serving a 10-year sentence in a United States prison for $11m fraud.
