Feb 3, 2014 – UI, University Of Ibadan Undergraduate, Nigerian Online Dating Scammer, Orowo Jesse Omokoh Arrested For Killing Australian Woman

EFCC officials have arrested a graduate of the University of Ibadan for the brutal murder of an Australian grandmother.

28-year-old Orowo Jesse Omokoh who was previously wanted in connection with the death of Jette Jacobs after defrauding her of $90,000 in an online dating scam was picked up last week by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Officials.

According to EFCC, Omokoh was caught on the 28th of January at an undisclosed location.

“The UI undergraduate will soon be brought before a court for extradition proceedings”, said EFCC spokesperson.

Omokoh met his 67-year-old victim on an Australian online dating site and started a sizzling romance that required him moving to South Africa last year to link up with his newly found grandma lover.

The suspect got to Johannesburg in South Africa on the 4th of February 2013 to meet Jacob who had been waiting for him since November of the previous year.

Just 5 days after Omokoh’s arrival at Jacob’s residence, she was found murdered in her apartment with some of her valuables missing.

Omokoh reportedly fled to Nigeria after killing her.

“The South African police, which is investigating the mysterious death, are suspicious that Omokoh has a hand in the demise of Jacobs,” the EFCC said.

The 67-year-old widow from Western Australia sent tens of thousands of dollars to her 28-year-old lover in Nigeria during their 4-year romance period.

They first met in Johannesburg in 2010 with no incident.

Jacob’s corpse was discovered on the 9th of February with obvious signs of trauma.

EFCC said the suspect’s confession has given them enough information to track down his partners in crime.

  1. These people are so gullible and dumb. how can you believe your grandson or granddaughter’s age mate can date you? I blame her for becoming a victim she should have known better

    • Oloye: Maybe you’re a scammer [?], how else could you THINK let alone POST such an heinous remark. Can you imagine the HORROR in her eyes [of the Australian woman] when the gang of cowardly and despicable scammers began beating her to death?

  2. I do not know why Nigerians behave like this, it seems as though money is all they are looking for. I am happy that bastard has been caught and may he rot in hell. Good riddance to bad rubbish

      • they aren’t stupid in the way you suggest. They’re just obviously part of the scammer’s motley crew who condone a “gang beating” of a senior Australian citizen woman to death. Begging the question of the Nigerian gov’t—how long do you think the western world will tolerate this barbaric criminal activity without recourse?

  3. Ewoo, another sad story, when is our youths going to stop this eager to make it anyhow without thinking about their future, is killing people and collecting their properties a means of getting rich? abomination, since you decided to date ur grandmother why didn’t u go ahead and marry her instead of killing the window, a capital punishment is waiting for you and others will learn from this.

  5. Dey don’t even need to take him to court, they should just kill d bloodsucker too, even though d woman was blinded by all d scopes, does dat mean she should pay wit her life?

    • walex: Ditto. I wish we could eliminate these criminals so efficiently and deserving of their evil cancer among the world of civilized humanity.

  6. Blaming the victim for being scammed and then brutally murdered? Do you know how completely stupid you sound? She was obviously a very lonely, very vulnerable woman who must have been desperate for someone to care about her. To say that that makes her deserving and somehow complicit in her own murder says less about HER than it does about YOU. I pray you don’t lose someone you care about, but if you do, how would you feel if someone blamed them for their own death? “She was hit by a car.” “Well, it was her own fault, how stupid can a person be, cruising the street where vehicles are. She brought it in herself and she deserved it.” As stupid and completely callous as that sounded, that’s the same mentality you have applied to an old woman who may have been someone’s mother, sister, aunt, and/or grandmother. People like you actually enable these scam artists success: those who are victimized are afraid they’ll suffer just that type of scornful reaction, and decide to keep quiet, and therefore a scammer is able to get away with it and go on to scam someone else. You’re a pathetic, disgusting, waste of oxygen.
    And as for Nigerians “seeming to think it’s all about the money” or whatever stupid thing the second commenter said, you’re right. The live in a country where the majority population lives in abject poverty, where things like clean running water, education, healthcare, and food are commodities that most of them will never be able to afford. You go live your life in a ramshackle clapboard with a dirt floor, where you and your young children spend hours doing back-breaking work to get paid with a cup of rice, and then tell me how important money is to you. You sit there, in your comfortable home with electricity and lights and water and food, with the police and the fire department within a moment’s reach, and it’s because you have money.
    I am not in any way excusing this murderous bastard’s actions: he was able to go to college, and he could have chosen a completely different way to make his living. Most Nigerians don’t have the opportunity that he had, which makes him all the more despicable. But to say that this woman deserved to die is disgusting; and to make such a patently ridiculous statement about people who live in a poverty that you couldn’t possibly begin to imagine, makes both of you look thoughtless and stupid.

  7. stupid a**grannies dating men dat r dia son’s age n knwing fully well dat d guy is afta ur dollars ….what a world?? …nd chacha will still be luking 4 a husband

    • parrot: it may be helpful if you have a sound response to write it in English, okay? I have no clue what you are saying.

  8. the most big question…………why any withe woman find happines only in arms of this people???? sehe choose something and she have it. Sory ,but if im free this is my opinion.

    • The Nigeria and Ghana scammer is all over the social networth begging for your love. But they only want your money.

    • serghei: Most of the time these scammers pose as white professional males, thus attracting white professional females. However, the only thing professional about these criminals is that they are hardened criminals in a mob syndicate. Moreover, have backing from the western world’s enemies such as terrorists like Osama bin Laden [who receive kick-backs from their stolen money].

  9. Me personally, I would never get in involve with any man from Africa. I would date only men from my country here in the USA.

  10. The worst thing in the world that was ever created for scammers was the dating sites. I have been on them for 6 months and I would say that 85% of the men that I have talked to have been SCAMMERS and I can prove it because I screen their Emails and they all ago back to Ghana, Egypt, India Nigeria or some Third World Country, when they tell me that they are sending from the US> The worst was a soldier who said he was deployed to Afghanistan, was looking for a wife and was interested in me and come to find out, he was using all the identity of a poor soldier that had been “killed in action.” Could that be any more disgusting or disrespectful?” They need to shut down these dating sites because the sites know about these scammers and are making lots of money off of them. I would love to hear some responses to this!!!

    • Lynn: moreover, they funnel money to the western world’s enemies such as terrorists headed formerly by Osama bin Laden.

  11. I would like to inerate here. This woman was innocent, there are women who like younger men and men who enjoy the older woman. Their choice of lover is their business, our business is to convict slim balls like him of the crime he committed and make an example of him. The woman only wanted love. I have been scammed 3 times and now if you ask me for money, you get deleted. I have found some honest good friends from Nigeria, so don’t put them all in the same boat! Not all are scammers, but most of them are. Just don’t send money.

  12. Some people are so dumb to d extent of behaving like damn nincompoopish nitwitous barbaric baboons. Why on earth should a mere breathing healthy human being have the guts to take life away from another, when he can’t make one of his hair white or dark? What on earth are you damn useless unthinkabls scammers achieving in life? Why on earth most u scam and murder your victims? Oh my God, must u bastards scam and kill someone? Why don’t you go and grab grab yourselves cement and sand and do some building works?
    Infact, I am pleading for an opportunity that the suspect should be handed over to me for just some torture, I doubt he will ever live to tell the story. Nonsence useless beast. Not only did your victim send send u free money but she has been nice to you too and treated like a lover, the best u could do is take her life. My judgement is thus: whoever kill should be killed same way without mercy. A man who murders and helpless old woman has no single reason to live. Justice must be prevailed.
    Sometimes I regret being a Nigerian. Nonsense little rat. Efcc, y dnt u shoot that bastard in the forehead. They are the one’s always ruining the names and business of innocent good Nigerians. Bitch!

Also point of corrections, not all Nigerians are scammers and murderers ‘cos there many a good people outer there who will/can never stand to behold the tears of a woman not to talk of murdering her. If you still can’t find such people or doubt such people ever existed, then behold I am one of yhem and a real one for that matter. That bitch murderer should be killed, I have no single respect or pity for scammers , armed robbers, ritualists and murders!
    My advice to women is please be wise. Secondly no age is too big to be in love, but a real man must respect a woman and a real woman must be sincere and respects the man. Whoever has bad thoughts or plots against his/her partner, in the might name of Jesus, I command that person and his plan to destroy by fire! Luv is from the heart not from the money and beauty.. God help us all.
