OAS Helicopters Boss, Everest Nnaji Arrested in $7.9m 419 deal

These are not the best of times for the ever bubbly OAS Helicopters boss, Capt. Everest Nnaji as the businessman is now in the net of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) explaining what he knows about an alleged $7.9m fraudulent oil deal.

According to EFFC sources, Nnaji and a certain Victor Uadaile were arrested separately in connection with the case which involved the scamming of an Arabian businessman who had wished to invest the said amount in the Nigerian oil sector.

We have it on good authority that Uadiale who is the principal suspect in the case acted as the arrowhead of an international syndicate versed in defrauding international businessmen seeking investment opportunities in Nigeria.

Uadiale allegedly invited the businessman from the Middle East to Nigeria using a fake name, Victor Emeka. On arrival at the NnamdiAzikiwe International Airport, Abuja, he was received by Victor and then flown in an helicopter to a destination where he met a certain Mr. Grant.Obviously a member of the syndicate, Mr. Grant assured the businessman of the authenticity of the deal-he went back home happy, convinced that all was well.

On his return from this “rewarding” trip, he began to transfer funds to Uadile’s offshore accounts where the funds were then moved to various accounts across the globe. After waiting for months without any word from his partners, the EFCC was contacted and they tracked down Uadiale who denied all knowledge of any business deal.

His cover was blown by a close associate of the foreign investor who not only led operatives to the FESTAC, Lagos home of the alleged fraud king pin but also positively identified him. Capt. Nnaji and his co-conspirators are set to appear in court soon.
