A Nigerian, Ugo Anele, has been declared wanted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for jumping bail.
Popularly known as Caesar, the Nigerian had pleaded guilty to romance scams and other scams in Atlanta, United States.
He was to serve three years imprisonment and make restitution to his victims.
Anele, who used to work in Atlanta and still has family there, is believed to be in Nigeria.
A Special Agent of the FBI, Steve Evans, said: “The same week that he was supposed to report to prison, he fled to Nigeria using someone else’s name.
“We know that he’s in Nigeria – in Lagos, Nigeria – and we’re looking for information about his exact whereabouts.”
Evans said Anyone with information on his exact whereabouts is asked to contact the nearest FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
