£1million Mansion Owned by Nigerian Man who Claimed he earned £700 Monthly
A Nigerian minicab driver, Ovo Mayomi (44) and his wife Juliet Ubiribo (32) involved in fraud and immigration scam in the UK has been uncovered.
Mr. Mayomi who claimed he was earning just £700 monthly and his wife, Juliet, were convicted of fraud in 2010 after using an identity and immigration scam to falsely claim £43,000 in benefits. Juliet claimed benefits after telling benefit bosses she was a single mother and a victim of domestic violence. They lived in Croydon, South London.
After their crime was discovered, their assets were frozen, and an investigation into the amount they gained from their crimes was launched.
Croydon Council discovered that Mayomi, who received a 30 month sentence two years ago, owned a luxurious home worth more than £1m in Nigeria, complete with chandeliers, £89,000 worth of sound equipment and a £25,000 watch.
His wife wore a Rolex watch and drove a Mercedes Sport Coupe.
The British Investigators also discovered that he owned two money-transferring businesses, bank accounts and a fish farm in Nigeria.
