EFCC says Odum is a native of Ikwerre in Rivers State.

“His last known address is 7 Odum Street, Elekahia, Port Harcourt”, said EFCC head of media and publicity, Wilson Uwujaren.

In the meantime, Odum’s depositors are wailing on his Facebook page, as they could not get their money back.

One of the victims, Grant Ogaga Etaghara who lives in Sapele, pleaded with Odum to return his principal sum of N1,100,000.

“I need the total capital that I deposited for investment in my bank account as soon as possible:, he wrote on Odum’s wall on Facebook.

He could well be addressing a stone. He started his investment in October. By November, Odum’s MBA failed to pay him his first ROI.

Ifunanya Elizabeth Ilechukwu, who reacted to Odum’s warning about another scammer said: There’s no difference between you and the scammer… Pay people that ROI or your refund their money… criminal”
