Mr Ogodogu was nabbed on the 15th of November, 2014 when he told a woman on Facebook that he’s Majid Michel. He later solicited for funds from the US-based Nigerian woman identified as Ikay to bury his late mother.
Unfortunately for him, when the real Majid  met the lady in US during his last visit ,she asked him why he was requesting for money from her. They played along with the imposter till he was nabbed. Kelvin was arraigned on Thursday before a Magistrates Court in Teshie, Ghana where he was sentenced to 10 months with hard labour.
