Fuji music icon, K1 de Ultimate, has confirmed that his son, Sultan, is in a group of nine Nigerians reportedly arrested for a $2 million fraud in the United States of America.
Reacting, the Fuji music legend, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, concerning a report alleging that his son Sultan was arrested in the U.S for fraud, he confirmed this to be true but maintains that there is likely a mix-up.
According to a social media post published on Saturday, December 22, 2018, the son mentioned as Sultan Omogbadebo Anifowoshe is among the defendants in a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Chicago 18 days prior.
Sultan is reportedly one of the subjects illegally dealing in “romance scams” and “mystery shopper” tricks. He got nabbed in a crime investigation named Operation Gold Phish according to the post.
His dad KWAM 1, has revealed that he has been released on bail and awaiting a court date.
Below is a statement made available by K1’s publicist, Kunle Rasheed;
“Our attention has been drawn to the news circulating that Sultan, K1’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 anyway involved in the crime, which explains the reason why he was the only person that was released on bail.
“At present, Sultan is back at home waiting for the next date of the case where we believe he will be set free eventually.”
