Veteran Fuji musician, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall, K1 De Ultimate has spoken up on the arrest of his son, Sultan Omogbadebo Anifowoshe who was accused by the US Department of Justice of scheming alongside 7 others to rob others of $2 million.
We reported yesterday that the suspects were arrested as part of a Chicago-based investigation called Operation Gold Phish.
Sultan was apprehended as part of an international investigation into online ‘love scams’ and ‘mystery shopper’ schemes that made victims lose at least $2 million (N724million) over the past two years.
KWAM 1 has, however, clarified that his son is not a fraudster but only a victim of circumstance. Speaking through his publicist to legit.ng, the Fuji star said, “Sultan Marshal’s Arrest: The True Story. Our attention has been drawn to the news circulating that Sultan, K1 De Ultimate’s son was arrested alongside five other people in the US over Two million Dollars fraud. There is no doubt that he was among those that were arrested but what is however not true is that he is a fraudster. We can confidently say that he was not in any way involved in the crime, which explains the reason why he was the only person that was released on bail. The bail given to Sultan indicates that he is not involved in the crime; he is only a victim of circumstance who happened to be at a wrong place at a wrong time. Many detractors are quick to celebrate the news because to them, they want to get to the father. But the truth will always shine as light over darkness. Sultan, we believe will be given a clean bill of health.”
