D9 Clube Arrests
The following information provided in “D9 Clube Arrests” is for your information only and has been collected from various sources online.
After the collapse of the D9 Clube, Danillo Santana fled from Brazil and eventually landed in Dubai.
Whether he knew it or not, Santana had made it onto The Red Broadcast, (Interpol’s wanted list) as head of an International Pyramid/Ponzi Scheme.
“A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action. It is based on an arrest warrant or court order issued by the judicial authorities in the requesting country. Member countries apply their own laws in deciding whether to arrest a person.” Source – Interpol Red Notice.

D9 Clube owner arrested in Dubai, to be extradited to Brazil
The Public Ministry of Rio Grande do Sul (MP-RS) the equivalent of The Attorney General’s Office was instructed to extradite Danilo Santana after being appointed by the Criminal Court of Sapiranga according to the police of Rio Grande do Sul and Bahia where the D9Clube did most of their initial damage.
The original arrest request was revoked due to problems with sending the documents to the Arab country. However, the decision was revised and reversed through appeal, and according to the internet, Santana was arrested in Dubai in February 2018 awaiting extradition back to Brazil.
What has happened since then, I cannot be completely sure of but I welcome any comments in the comments section below for any updates.
D9 Clube Was a Global Scheme
The D9 Clube primarily targeted Brazillion investors (their official headquarters was situated in the International Trade Center of Recife, Brazil.) but went International with a huge presence in Africa under the leadership of Protus “Smart” Magara. Luis Durigon was in charge of recruiting MLM leaders in Europe, the USA, and Canada who would then spread the virus to Asia and other parts of the World.
Authorities estimated that the D9Clube was at least a $642 million dollar Ponzi scheme involving USD(United States Dollars) and BTC(Bitcoin).
Not much is known about what happened to Luis Durigon but Protus Smart ended up in very hot water.
The Home of Smart Protus Magara
Protus Smart Magara lived on a 2-acre estate on Entebbe Road in Akright City, Uganda.
It is bordered by Namugongo Road to the north, the community of Bwebajja and Kampala–Entebbe Road to the east, Namulanda to the southeast, Palm Valley Golf and Country Club to the south, and the community of Sekiwunga and Entebbe–Kampala Expressway to the west.
Magara was living the “High Life” in a residence fitted with CCTV cameras to provide comprehensive surveillance of his property, a huge swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen, and a guest house larger than the mansions of most millionaires in the country.
Although his actual residence could not be found online, the video below illustrates the type of lifestyles being lived there.

Pretty nice area when compared to the rest of the Nation.
It is also from where former President and Military Dictator Idi Amin Dada ruled.
Gun Recovered In Raid
The incident occurred on a Friday evening.
A surprise raid on the home of Protus Magara, where the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) operatives closed in on him.
Wearing plain clothes, the armed security forces sealed off the expansive home.
Eyewitnesses spotted about 20 CMI operatives wielding automatic weapons along the entire perimeter wall.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire confirmed the raid on the property saying Magara had been arrested and weapons recovered from his luxurious home.
The raid was the result of Magara heading a nefarious pyramid/Ponzi online sports trading platform known as D9 Club, which had mini-offices in Rwanda, Kenya, and Uganda.
“Magara was arrested after a search of his home and he is still with the military. He was found with a gun, which has serial numbers of the army,” Oweyesigyire said.
He, however, said details about the arrest could be obtained from the army.
‘It’s true, CMI and police recovered an AK7 assault rifle and three magazines full of live bullets from Magara’s home.” Said Oweyesigre. Source – Chimp Reports.
Upon further inspection, it was discovered that the gun had serial numbers of the UPDF.
UPDF stands for The Uganda People’s Defence Force, previously known as the National Resistance Army. It is the armed forces of Uganda.
Magara said he received the gun from UPDF. When asked to provide documentation to prove his assertions, he could not give any.
The raid was executed as a result of suspicion that he was a top leader of D9 Club, an internet-based pyramid scheme operated by Danillo Santana and others, and was banned in various parts of Africa where he continued to operate.
On top of numerous Corruption, Wire-Fraud, and Money-Laundering Violations, Magara will also face charges related to the illegal possession of a firearm. While Magara lives a luxurious life, his source of wealth has always remained a mystery.
This would also raise the eyebrows of the Tax Authorities in the jurisdiction where he resides.
The Bank of Uganda (BOU) ordered the freezing of D9 Club accounts in all commercial banks, and according to a circular issued to all management of commercial banks, credit institutions, and microfinance deposit-taking institutions, BOU issued to them Magara’s biodata.
The National Bank of Rwanda Governor John Rwangombwa announced the ban on the illegal D9 Clube organization which he said had “illegally set its foot in the country and was operating under the name of Smart Protus Magra through his account number 10021007211913 in Equity Bank Uganda.”
Rwangombwa notified banks of “this scam” and required them to put in place “adequate controls to prevent the transfer of funds to this scheme and stop its spread across the country.”
Magara’s arrest was the latest of CMI operations in and around the city.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire said Magara “was being monitored for some time” before his arrest when he was detained and interrogated by CMI operatives.
He said that Magara was being held at CMI headquarters in Mbuya at the time of his arrest.
If you have any recent details of his arrest, and the arrest of others associated with this Scheme please leave them in the comments section below.
In The High Court of Uganda At Kampala
“The applicant’s case could also be grounded on other sufficient reasons. This is not defined under the Civil Procedure Rules. The applicant has not set out any other reason sufficient for the court to review its decision. ‘Any Other sufficient reason’ must mean ‘a reason sufficient on grounds, at least analogous to those specified in the rule.”
Police arrest Ponzi Scheme Referrers In Ibadan
Ibadan is the capital and most populous city of Oyo State, in Nigeria. It is the third-largest city by population in Nigeria after Lagos and Kano, with a total population of 3,649,000 as of 2021, and over 6 million people within its metropolitan area. It is the country’s largest city by geographical area.

Thousands of Nigerians were swindled by the D9 Clube of Arbitrage Sports Traders operating out of Brazil. Danillo Santana, the main “Bad Actor” shared this scheme directly with Smart Protus Magara from Uganda who then spread it far and wide through Africa.
In order to do this effectively, Santana and Magara needed “Top MLM Recruiters” throughout the Country.
The man at the center of the scheme in Nigeria was Kayode Samuel a CAC Pastor and Accountant.
Trouble for Pastor Samual started when one of the clients he referred to the scheme, a woman, failed to realize an interest yield of N3 million after investing N1 million as promised.
According to the failed client, “I invested N1 million after I heard him speaking on the radio, talking about the “You cannot Lose” Investment…”
“…I paid the money into Samuel’s Access Bank account as I was directed. After one year, I didn’t receive the money. When I asked him to refund my money, he said the scheme had shut down because the person that started it had been murdered. I have over 200 names of people he has defrauded so far. There are still others.”
Well, the person/persons that started the scheme are all “alive and well” and awaiting extradition and court proceedings.
Samuel fled from his office in Ojodu Berger after defrauding his clients and relocated to Ibadan, Oyo State some 115 km North East away.
Paster Samuel was tracked to Ibadan and arrested by detectives attached to SEB (Special Enquiry Bureau) of the Force Criminal Investigations Department headquartered at Alagbon, Obalende, Lagos State.
The police explained that Pastor Kayode Samuel, the CEO of “Sack Your Boss, Be Your Boss,” allegedly conspired with a gentleman named Kola Banji and others still at large defrauded investor clients and fled when those clients went to the authorities.
According to the Police, when the Inspector-General of Police and Deputy Inspector-General of Police received the petition, instruction was issued to SEB detectives to “fish out” the suspects behind the alleged scam.
Detectives attached to SEB received a tip-off that Samuel and his co-conspirators were strategizing in another area of Ibadan to defraud more innocent citizens of their hard-earned money.
The detectives narrowed down the illegal activities to Oyo State where the Duo Of Samuel and Banji were arrested.
Others Facing Arrest
Pastor Mark Kigozi, the eloquent and humorous district former pastor of KPC East (Watoto) is now officially a fraudster, at least Bank of Uganda information shows.
The flamboyant leader of Real Life Family Church situated in Namboole stadium whose name also con-sides with the failed television show he hosts on NBS television has been singled out as one of the people being a new pyramid/Ponzi scheme that has been for almost a year now been robbing unsuspecting Ugandans of their hard-earned money electronically.
Snoops reveal that Pastor Kigozi works for a Brazilian investor Sergio Cursino to run D9 Club or D9 Clube. This scheme has been asking ‘investors’ to put in as little as Sh900, 000 and as much as Sh7 million. They promise to multiply that money nearly 5 fold within the course of one year.
The other Ugandan bigshots in D9 are Protus Smart Magara and Mr John Sebutinde.
Hi, Your Admin here on this site, Paul Mindra
The D9 Clube of Arbitrage Sports Investors was the biggest scam back in 2016-2017.
There are a few legitimate opportunities available online to better your presence in life. Unfortunately, they are not “Get Rich Quick.”
For those looking for “Quick” options, especially in the Cryptocurrency/Forex/Binary options markets I can only offer some guidance.
If you suspect that an individual or firm selling an investment or offering advice is not registered in their proper jurisdiction, stop dealing with them immediately. If someone who has approached you to invest tells you they are registered, check the NRS of your jurisdiction and with the registered firm they say they represent.
For me, it is the National Registry Search (Canada).
Some Guidelines that you should consider:
- Returns that are “too good to be true” probably are. Bad actors often try to hook people by guaranteeing extremely high returns in a short period of time with little or no risk.
- Bad Actors who promote fraudulent schemes don’t want to give you any time to figure out their game. They may also pressure you to invest a little at first. Once you invest, they will then come back looking for a larger amount.
- Bad Actors may offer to help you with your investment account or ask for remote access to your computer or mobile device. Giving out your account information to these Bad Actors, or allowing them to access your computer or mobile device is extremely risky. It could result in fraud and/or identity theft.
- Be wary of investments that are promoted as exclusive offers only to you and select people, like wealthy insiders, have access to them. Bad Actors like to name-drop or say they have access to famous or rich people when promoting an investment.
- If an investment advisor or individual says they are giving you “confidential” investment advice, they may actually be deceiving you or their employer. Both put you at risk. It is illegal to knowingly trade on inside information.
- If a firm or individual from outside of Canada is trying to open an account for you, wants to give you trading or investment advice, or is offering you an investment, be extremely wary. Brokerage firms need to register with your province or territory as dealers or advisors in order to open trading accounts or recommend investments to you.
- Anti-establishment – Any individual who encourages you to subvert the government or avoid financial institutions is most likely trying to keep their illegal activities from being tracked.
- Cutting out the paper trail. Without documents for investment purchases, statements, or a prospectus (a formal document that explains the details of an investment and the risks involved), a Bad Actor can easily take your money without being detected.
If the person/company selling you the investment doesn’t answer your questions or they use diversionary tactics, they’re probably trying to keep you from seeing the truth. A legitimate investment has nothing to hide.
If you do decide to do such HYIP/Ponzi schemes then get in early and do so with your “Big-Boy” pants on.
Meaning, don’t cry after the fact and keep any finger-pointing directed back to you.
