Huddah Monroe’s ex-boyfriend Apocalypse Bella who brands himself as the “Self Made Self Paid Millionaire” on social media was arrested in the United States and charged in a scheme to get Sh1.4 billion ($14 million) in COVID-19 relief loans.
Apocalypse Bella – real name Dias Yumba – together with two other men; Mackenzy Toussaint, and Amos Mundendi were charged for trying to obtain government-guaranteed loans designed to provide relief to small businesses during the pandemic.
The United States Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York said
“Apocalypse Bella and his co-defendants are charged with engaging in a scheme to obtain over $14 million in fraudulent loans from the government. The Coronavirus pandemic has profoundly affected the global economy, and Government-funded Coronavirus loan programs provide much-needed economic relief to individuals, families, and businesses suffering economic hardships.”
“This Office and our law enforcement partners will continue to ensure the watchful protection of these critical funds from fraud.”
BELLA, 36, of Clackamas, Oregon, TOUSSAINT, 39, of Irving, Texas, and MUNDENDI, 32, of Dallas, Texas, are charged with one count of conspiracy, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, one count of major fraud against the United States, which carries a maximum sentence of ten years in prison, and one count of wire fraud and wire fraud conspiracy, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
