Nollywood actress, Mimi Orjiekwe has been reportedly arrested and detained by The Special Fraud Unit (SFU) Ikoyi, Lagos state over alleged failure to deliver a contract worth N700,000,000 awarded to her by businessman, Mr Micheal Diongoli.
According to Instagram Blogger, Cuttie Julls, Mr Micheal Diongoli paid a total sum of N700million (seven hundred million naira) directly to Mimi Orjiekwe to secure the procurement contract to supply specific household interior-design furniture items, but she failed to deliver.
This led Mr Micheal Diongoli to file a petition to the Ikoyi law enforcement police department to help locate and arrest Mimi Orjiekwe.
Meanwhile, insiders say Mimi Orjiekwe had been at large for nearly two months after receiving the N700 million naira from the Businessman.
Sharing details of her arrest on Instagram, Cuttie Julls wrote, “It’s largely rumoured in Mimi’s close circus that the actress had previously mentioned to few that she was confident Mr Michael Diongoli would remain behind bars for a long time when he had issues with the Nigerian Interpol.
“Guess fate got on the wrong side of Mimi as Michael Diongoli has been released by the Interpol and has been expecting Mimi to complete the job he paid her for but all efforts have been unsuccessful as Mimi is suspected to have used the money for other personal interests.”
Also, investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, took to her official Facebook page to give the update;
