A popular Nigerian pastor, Kelechi Vitalis Anozie, has been arrested by the EFCC after a wanted label by the FBI on him for wire fraud.
Kelechi Vitalis Anozie is the founder of Praying City Church located in Owerri, the capital of Imo, Nigeria.
The suspect is on the watch list of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
In a statement on Thursday by EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, Anozie was nabbed following intelligence linking him to alleged conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering.
Anozie is said to have worked with four accomplices: Valentine Iro, Ekene Ekechukwu (alias Ogedi Power), Bright Azubuike (alias Bright Bauer Azubuike) and Ifeanyi Junior.
“They are alleged to have defrauded one F. F., who lives in Illinois, the sum of $135,800 and another $47,000”, the statement added.
