Interpol has declared a Nigerian couple wanted over their alleged involvement in multi-million dollar investment fraud.
Gloria Igberaese and Muyiwa Folorunsho are CEOs of Divergent Enterprise with several subsidiaries such as Landlagos, PorkMoney, Hyberfactory and Porkoyum.
The couple, whose social media prominence earned them the pseudonym ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ is alleged to have defrauded thousands of Nigerians to the tune of N1 billion.
“These funds were however diverted to personal use, including for the purchase of luxury properties and foreign citizenship,” victims said in a January 21, 2021, petition to federal authorities.
A Federal High Court in Lagos has issued warrants of arrest for the couple.
“He is wanted by the police for the offence of obtaining money under false pretence, stealing and diversion of fund,” a notice issued by the Intepol section of the Nigeria Police Force in Lagos said with descriptions of their physical qualities.
“If seen, arrest and hand over to the nearest police station or to the office of the commissioner of police Interpol Section Force Criminal Investigation Department Annex Alagbon Ikoyi Close, Lagos,” the documents further said.
The couple was called out in 2019 for allegedly mistreating staff and creating a toxic work environment, but they denied the allegations.
