Texas: Nigerian Student Arrested after Being Found with Dead Mother’s Body

The story is over a week old, however, I checked this morning to see if he has been charged with murdering her yet and only see that he is still being held on a million dollar bond.

And, although I’m late on reporting the news (thanks to reader Gail for sending it), it really doesn’t matter because I suspect that unless you follow Texas news, or LOL! Nigerian tabloid news, you haven’t seen this elsewhere in America.

Our media doesn’t mention that the obvious ‘new American’ is Nigerian, but I’ve noticed that news media in Nigeria is always quick to identify their own. See here.

Once again we have a criminal from Nigeria.  Why on earth do we have so many of them living here?

Here is KVUE (ABC):

AUSTIN, Texas — A University of Texas student has been arrested as police investigate the cause of his mother’s death at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Downtown Austin.

20-year-old Eyitoluwa Olayeye University of Texas student arrested.

Austin Police Department officers responded to the Holiday Inn Express & Suites at 4:44 a.m. on Wednesday after the caller reported they heard screaming in one of the rooms.

Upon arrival at the room in question, police forced entry and found the victim lying face down on the floor with the suspect on her back.

Police then detained the suspect, identified as 20-year-old Eyitoluwa Olayeye. The victim was identified as his mother, 48-year-old Kehinde Olayeye. She was pronounced dead at 6:12 a.m.

Police reported a bloody pillow was found inside the room and the suspect appeared to be singing in a different language. A witness also reported they heard a female running down the hallways around 4:15 a.m. saying “let me in.” He also said he heard what appeared to be a person being dragged past his room.

Upon speaking with the victim’s sister, she told police they had flown to Austin from Georgia the night before to visit Eyitoluwa. She said she was staying in a separate room from the pair and was unaware of any disturbance between them before she went to her own room.

Police then learned that Eyitoluwa was released from Dell Seton Medical Hospital on Nov. 5, where he was treated for psychiatric evaluation.

While they were still in Georgia, the suspect’s aunt said she heard him rambling and saying, “I pray that God brings us together.” The suspect’s friends had also told them that he was saying he had found his purpose in life and that, apparently, he had touched someone inappropriately at the library on campus and had been asked to leave.

Eventually, the friends called back to tell them that Eyitoluwa was transported by EMS to the hospital. Prior to boarding their flight, she said a doctor called them to ask if they had a history of mental illness in the family, which she said she was not aware of. Later, the friends called again to say that he had been discharged.

[….]

At the hotel, the aunt said he again began to speak about God [which God?—ed] and his purpose, and that he had gotten into an argument with a professor about the economy and how it was not in favor of the poor.  She also said he told them that the hospital was trying to hold him because of a mental issue, but he “just told them what they wanted to hear so they would let him go,” court documents state.

She said he appeared to be “really hyped up” at this point, so she told him to go to bed. She said that she and her sister wanted to bring him back to Georgia. She also said she hugged him before going back to her own room.

There are a lot more details, so go here to read it all.

For new readers:

If you have recently started following ‘Frauds and Crooks’ please have a look at my ‘Welcoming post’ from January first of this year.   I wanted to write this blog as I saw increasingly that the Open Borders Left had launched a national media effort in advance of the 2020 presidential contest to tell the public about all of the joys that ‘new Americans’ bring to our country.

I want to balance that propaganda by telling you about the frauds, criminals, terrorists and murderers in the ‘new American’ population.

You can bet if a refugee from Somalia goes to Harvard, we are told that he/she is a refugee and from Somalia.

However…

One of my major concerns is that even when the mainstream media reports on horrific cases like this one, we rarely learn the nationality of the alleged criminal and almost never hear how the perpetrator gained entry to the country—legally or illegally.

Therefore, we can never judge whether a legal immigration program is flawed and is opening our gates to frauds, crooks and criminals.

Another Nigerian Sentenced for Cyber Scam, also Committed Marriage Fraud to Stay in US

I promise this isn’t a blog just for Nigerian scammers we ‘welcomed’ to America even if it seems that way sometimes!

Maybe we have a special visa I didn’t know about to attract the best and brightest scammers in the world to ply their trade while living among us!

First thing I did after seeing the news from the US Justice Department about Nigerian national Olufolajimi Abegunde getting a six year sentence in the slammer (the taxpayers must now pay for!) was to see if there was a picture this time.

Well, what do you know there is!

Abegunde received an MBA from Texas A&M which gives us a clue that he came to the US on a student visa.

You will see below that he committed marriage fraud to stay—a common pathway for ‘new American’ wannabees.

The photo at right has been used widely around the world (not much US media coverage of his case), but Nigerian writers are promoting the propaganda that Abegunde was being racially profiled by the feds in Tennessee.

In January of this year, according to an African blogger, Abegunde is innocent and he was scapegoated by racist feds operating in racist Memphis, Tennessee:

Other updates to the saga also shows that a local judge in Memphis TN area, the city where he is being held, confirmed that Federal authorities around TN area act and prosecute based on racial bias.

Judge Fowlkes of Memphis TN confirmed this while trying a gun charge case.The case involved a white man who records say sold an undercover officer 100 ecstasy pills for $800, while his black partner stayed in the car with a gun.

Fowlkes asked why the white defendant wasn’t slapped with the same gun charge as the black defendant since they worked together. The gun charge carres an automatic 5 year sentence just for the black person.

The above case shows that Olufolajimi’s claims of racial mistreatment is valid and should be taken into account. His family wishes to draw the attention of current Presidential aspirants and other concerned Nigerians to look into this matter as Nigeria cannot continue to fold it’s arms while it’s citizens are mistreated on the basis of skin color.

Now have a look at the US Justice Department case against the pure-as-the-driven-snow Abegunde:

Nigerian Citizen Sentenced for Role in International Cyber-Fraud Scheme

Memphis, TN – A citizen of Nigeria residing in Atlanta, Georgia, was sentenced to 78 months in prison yesterday for his role in an international cyber fraud scheme….

[….]

Abegunde and Ramos-Alonso participated in a criminal organization in which members “spoofed” emails and created fake profiles on dating websites in order to fool victims into sending money to bogus bank accounts under the control of members of the conspiracy. The proceeds would be laundered and subsequently wired out of the United States to destinations including West Africa.

The organization as a whole is believed to have caused more than $10,000,000 in damage to United States citizens and businesses.

U.S. Attorney D. Michael Dunavant said: “Frauds perpetrated through the Internet cause significant financial harm to businesses and individuals in our District and throughout the United States. Because those committing Internet fraud involve foreign nationals and others who hide behind technology, the cases are difficult – but not impossible – to investigate. We will continue to deploy our resources to take on these difficult cases, and we are pleased to achieve justice for the victims in this case.”

Read the details about how the crooks set up their cyber crimes, but below we see how Abegunde used marriage fraud to stay in the US once he finished ‘studying’ at Texas A & M.  You can’t make this up!

The Justice Department continues…

In addition to his financial activities, Abegunde also engaged in a conspiracy to commit marriage fraud. Abegunde was married during his studies at Texas A&M, but divorced his wife in 2016 to marry a U.S. service member through whom he could obtain immigration and health care benefits and also open new bank accounts.

He continued to live with his first wife in Atlanta while his U.S. service member wife was deployed to South Korea.

While incarcerated and awaiting trial in the Western District of Tennessee, Abegunde continued his conspiratorial activities, trying to convince his fake spouse, who has since filed for divorce, to refuse to testify against him.

Abegunde is contesting the divorce from his fake spouse.

Abegunde also engaged in witness tampering by sending a self-written Motion to Dismiss bearing his former attorney’s name and professional attestation. The evidence at trial established that Abegunde drafted and sent the motion, which his attorney expressly did not authorize, to his faux spouse in an effort to deceive her into not testifying against him.

Read it all here.

You wouldn’t know it if you just watch cable news and read your local paper, but there are many, many fraud schemes (perpetrated by foreign nationals)  busted every day by the Trump Administration.  The President should be bragging about the crooks and criminals he is getting off the streets.

At each rally he should showcase some of the best cases his Justice Department has prosecuted.

Texas: New American sees Medical License Suspended, WTH Took so Long?

Geez, he allegedly stalked at least one underage girl, clearly harassing her even after a court order told him to stay away, and it wasn’t even his first run-in with the law.  He was arrested in 2017 for stalking another woman.

Although no story mentions his nationality, I’m betting on the ‘N-word’—Nigerian.  And, I wonder if he is a student visa overstay, but of course there is no mention of his immigration status.

His mental fitness to practice medicine is being questioned, but how about questioning why he is in the US in the first place!

Here is the story from Dallas News:

Frisco doctor banned from practicing medicine after allegedly stalking underage girl

A Frisco doctor who is accused of stalking an underage high school student has been barred from practicing medicine in Texas.

The state’s medical board suspended Uchenna Okechukwu Aduba’s medical license this week after a panel found that his practice “would constitute a continuing threat to the public welfare.”

The Dallas News story doesn’t have a picture of the alleged crazy stalker, Uchenna Okechukwu Aduba, but the local CBS affiliate does. More details too! https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2019/10/17/frisco-doctor-uchenna-aduba-suspended-after-allegedly-stalking-harassing-underaged-girl/

Aduba faces felony charges in Collin County because of allegations that he stalked a high school student, even following her into a classroom. He’s also faced accusations of harassment at an elementary school, Collin College campuses and in his northeast Frisco neighborhood.

It’s unclear whether Aduba was practicing medicine in Frisco, a Texas Medical Board spokesman said. He received his Texas medical license while he was a resident at Houston’s UT Health hospital in 2017, and records show he also held a medical license in California from May 2015 to October 2016.

Since June 2016, Aduba has been evaluated nine times by physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists and counselors, according to Texas Medical Board documents. He has been diagnosed with “serious mental health conditions that affect his ability to practice medicine safely.”

The board temporarily suspended Aduba’s medical license Oct. 10. It will remain suspended until the board takes further action either in a settlement with Aduba or through a hearing during which Aduba can defend himself against the accusations.

What took so long?

The stalking charge is scheduled to go to trial in early November.

[….]

He also is accused of stalking a high school student who lived in his neighborhood, according to the documents. He tried sending messages to her through the Nextdoor app, knocking on her door and sliding a photo of himself under her door with his telephone number written on it.

Aduba followed the high school student in his car while she was on her way to class, according to the documents. He made it into her classroom before the school’s staff detained him. [Imagine how scary this was for the victim!—ed]

At the time he told a Frisco police officer he was a Collin College student who was there to observe the class, and he provided a fake student ID number, according to the documents.

On Nov. 3, 2017, he was arrested on a felony stalking charge. As part of the arraignment on that charge, a protective order was imposed on Aduba to prevent him from coming within 2,000 feet of the girl.

Four days later, he was arrested for violating that protective order after he drove past the girl’s home.

No! I haven’t renamed this blog—it is not ‘Nigerian Frauds and Crooks’ (yet!).

However, just take a look at all the Nigerian frauds, crooks and murderers I’ve written about just since January!

Thanks to a reader for sending this story.  And, I want to thank all of you for sending links to promising stories for Frauds, Crooks and Criminals. Unfortunately there aren’t enough hours in my day to post them all especially as I am now writing regularly again at Refugee Resettlement Watch, see here.

Ultimate Fighting Championship Pits Nigerian Immigrant Against White Trump Supporter

This is not a joke!  A December UFC welterweight championship fight will feature the son of a Nigerian immigrant who happens to be serving a 15-year sentence for stealing from taxpayers through Medicare/Medicaid fraud.

Given an award by the Republican National Committee for “Businessman of the Year” during the Bush Administration for his “successful” ambulance companies, Muhammed Usman was sentenced to prison in 2012 for fraudulent billing practices at his two companies.

His son Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman faces the UFC’s “Ultimate Villain” Colby Covington “a relentlessly vocal champion of President Donald Trump” in a December Ultimate Fighting Championship match up.

Here is some of the story  where the reporter gives details about Muhammed’s scam and questions (or asks the reader to question) whether he deserves such a lengthy sentence when his partners in crime are Americans who got lesser sentences, and heck, after all they only fraudulently billed taxpayers for $3.6 million.

Regular readers will notice that again we are talking about Nigerian fraudsters who got into the US and we are never told how, through which legal program they gained access to the “American dream?”  Or was their entrance to the US illegal in the first place?

From The Body Lock:

(emphasis is mine)

The Nigerian-American Nightmare: The remarkable story of Kamaru Usman’s father

No stranger to variety, the podcast of UFC commentator Joe Rogan, The Joe Rogan Experience, has been the launchpad for countless remarkable stories that span a gamut of topics from bowhunting, to artificial intelligence, to zany conspiracy theories, and everything in between.

One of the podcast’s more fascinating discussions was provided by UFC welterweight champion Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman: during his appearance on the show, Usman made it known that his father, Muhammed Usman, was serving a 15-year sentence in a federal penitentiary for crimes Kamaru believes his father didn’t commit.

Kamaru Usman’s anecdote left the MMA [Mixed Martial Arts—ed]  fan base intrigued and perplexed; how was the fact that the father of the UFC welterweight champion was serving such a lengthy sentence just coming to light? What was the chain of events that led to Mr. Usman’s incarceration? What did he do that got him a 15-year sentence? And, perhaps the most contentious question of all, does Muhammed Usman deserve to be in prison?

Some of these questions can be objectively answered; the last cannot. With an understanding of the chain of events that led to the incarceration, an explanation of the particularly nuanced legal statutes that affected the sentencing, and a consideration of the larger societal questions at play, we leave you to make your own judgment about the ethicality of Muhammed Usman’s imprisonment.

Muhammed Usman immigrated to the United States from his home country of Nigeria in 1989. After gaining citizenship in 1996, Usman followed in the footsteps of the entrepreneurial immigrants that came before him, embarking down the well-walked path towards The American Dream. Usman founded a pair of ambulance companies — Royal Ambulance (established in 2003) and First Choice EMS (established in 2005) — that were so successful he was awarded the Republican National Committee’s “Who’s Who Businessman of the Year.”

You can read the lengthy discussion of Usman’s illegal activity that ended in his being sentenced to 15 years in the slammer (of course at great expense to taxpayers), here.  (As told by his son!).

The Body Lock story then continues…..

Sports and politics are notoriously contentious, so a story such as Muhammed Usman’s where the two collide has generated bellicose debate: some see Muhammed Usman as a criminal conspirator, rightfully punished with an appropriate implementation of justice; others see a victim of a dysfunctional justice system that wrongfully imprisoned the American Dream incarnate after he was scapegoated by his native-born partners for a crime he had no hand in committing.

[….]

Regardless of which perspective one takes, Mr. Usman’s saga is undeniably being contemplated through the cultural lens of the time in which his son exposed it: while sentenced back in 2012, Mr. Usman’s story encapsulates a spectrum of societal quandaries that America struggles to answer today: encompassed by the issues of race, immigration, questions of over-prosecution in the justice system, government-funded health insurance (and therefore its potential for abuse), the case of Muhammed Usman serves as a Rorschach Test for one’s political beliefs; a fitting test given who Muhammed Usman’s son will be fighting next.

In a development fit for the final act of a Hollywood blockbuster, it was recently announced Kamaru Usman will be defending his welterweight UFC belt against Colby Covington at UFC 245. Covington — a relentlessly vocal champion of President Donald Trump — has modified the President’s strategy of using bigotted rhetoric to galvanize his political supporters fit his own objective: by infusing the “heel” persona of a 1980’s professional wrestler with the modern political rhetoric detested by many, Covington has positioned himself as the “UFC’s ultimate villain,” energizing supporters and detractors alike and drawing attention to his bouts.

Regardless of Covington’s motives for his antics, his behavior is indisputably atrocious: racism, xenophobia, homophobia, and misogynism aren’t bugs for Covington, they’re features. Most notoriously, after telling a Brazilian crowd: “Brazil you’re a dump. All you filthy animals suck,” Covington took to Instagram to explain he’s not a racist, but a “realist:” a common trope racists use to justify racism.

While Colby Covington has successfully increased his relevancy by manifesting the MAGA-movement into a cage fighter, Kamaru Usman seeks to be its, and Covington’s, antithesis. Vowing to “put the wrath of every immigrant” (including his father),on Colby Covington, UFC 245 will be an appropriate culmination to the story of Muhammed Usman and his family; the “final-battle” of a narrative almost too perfect for the silver screen.

Read it all here.

Of course it’s all hype so more people will watch the December match.

I’m not interested enough to watch, but I’ll be looking to see how the media plays it and who ultimately wins this fight.

New American entrepreneurs?

Have a look at all the posts I’ve written just since January about Nigerian scammers ripping off America and Americans, click here.  I bet no other ethnic group of ‘new Americans’ has been featured here as much as the Nigerians!

FBI in Nigeria: Another Arrest Made in Major Fraud Scheme

Remember the story a few weeks ago about the FBI arresting over a dozen Nigerians (aka ‘new Americans’) operating out of the US to steal from unsuspecting Americans and others.

Here is a brief story from Nigerian media about a new bust in the case.  It interested me to see that our FBI is working in Africa to find the frauds and crooks who rip-off mostly vulnerable American women.

FBI List: We’ve Arrested Emmanuel Adedeji Oluwatosin, Uncovered N1 Billion In His Account – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) in collaboration with the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation has Emmanuel Adedeji Oluwatosin, one of the 77 Nigerians indicted by the US government over a large-scale scam.

FBI-EFCC-

Two cars – Mercedes Benz E550 and Mercedes Benz C450 -, an iPhone, laptops, a modem and SIM cards were seized from his residence.

He was paraded in Sokoto State on Thursday, following his arrest in Kaduna State.

According to the Zonal Head, Abdullahi Lawal, Oluwatosin and his accomplices acquired retirement account information (RAI) and personally identifiable information (PII) of multiple persons which they used to wire funds into newly-created business bank accounts.

The proceeds were then converted to cryptocurrency.

Preliminary investigations, EFCC noted, showed that about N1,437,889,157.15 passed through the suspect’s accounts. [If I did the conversion correctly that should be about $4 million in USD.—ed]

Seventy million naira from that money had been traced, said Lawal as he said efforts were on to recover the money.

Do the math, I think you will see the vast majority of the money will never be recovered.
