According to reports, two gold scam suspects who allegedly committed a fraudulent activity in which they acquired a staggering amount of $1 Million USD from an American citizen were put on trial yesterday at the Kibera Law Courts. They were later granted a Sh 500,000 cash bail and were subsequently released.
In the metropolis, a bogus gold scheme of elevated proportions was recently perpetrated by two individuals, namely Nicholas Otieno Ndolo, also known as Nick, who holds the position of director at DSI Mining and Minerals Ltd, and Thomas Otieno Ngoe, the director of AFRICORP Legal Consultancy. These men were taken into police custody subsequent to a complaint lodged by an American at the Capitol Hill police station.
Following the successful closure of a business arrangement with ‘Nick’, a non-native individual initiated the transfer of a staggering sum of $1 million US dollars from their account at Northern Trust Bank, which is situated in the United States, to AFRICOP’s account at Equity bank. This transaction came about as a direct result of the lucrative purchase of gold made by the aforementioned party.
The individual known as ‘Nick’ proceeded to share a multitude of documents with the recipient through the messaging application WhatsApp, in order to validate the sale of gold. The documents included a nomination of Thomas Otieno, director of AFRICORP legal consultancy, as the legal consultant for the transaction. This event signified the commencement of a difficult period for the prospective investor, as repeated requests to view the valuable commodity he had purchased went unanswered, and the elusive duo ultimately could not be contacted.
As a result of this incident, he felt compelled to notify the authorities and a widespread search ensued for the pair of suspects, ultimately culminating in their capture in the affluent neighborhoods of Kilimani and Lavington within the metropolis. Upon receiving a verdict from the court, it was deemed appropriate that the accused parties be granted their freedom in exchange for a sum of Sh500,000 in cash as well as the provision of a reputable contact individual. Additionally, a condition was imposed whereby the suspects must present themselves for interrogation at the hands of the investigating officer each Monday and Thursday without fail.
The scheduled date for the mention of the case has been determined to be on April 3, 2023.
