Hamdani said the 57-year-old Nigerian was part of an international fraud ring that deceived victims with false promises of lucrative investment opportunities and inheritances.

 

According to Hamdani, Diuno and his accomplices posed as officials from prominent U.S. banks to lure victims into making payments under the guise of securing investment and money transfer agreements.

The fraudsters subsequently funnelled back the payments to orchestrators of the scheme in Nigeria.

Diuno, who pleaded guilty admitted to employing multiple aliases to enhance the credibility of the scam.

He explained that he ordered the distribution of the illicit proceeds, which included buying vehicles in the U.S. to ship to Nigeria.

According to Diuno, this is done following the scheme leader’s instructions.
