The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has slammed Hushpuppi after his arrest on Dubai.
Dubai Police yesterday confirmed that they recently arrested Raymond Igbalode Abbas, also known as “Hushpuppi” and Olalekan Jacob Ponle aka “Woodberry” along with 10 African cybercriminals in a special operation dubbed “Fox Hunt 2”.
Lt. General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, the Commander-in-chief of Dubai Police, said the arrest of ‘Hushpuppi’, ‘Woodberry’ and ten gang members involved in money laundry and cyber fraud activities, is another achievement added to the proud record of Dubai police in ensuring the emirate’s security and safety as well as preserving people’s money and property.
The director of Dubai CID said the raid resulted in confiscating incriminating documents of a planned fraud on a global scale worth AED 1.6 billion ($ 435 million).
“The team also seized more than Dhs150 million ($40.9 million) in cash, 13 luxury cars with an estimated value of Dhs25 million ($6.8 million) obtained from fraud crimes, and confiscated 21 computer devices, 47 smartphones, 15 memory sticks, five hard disks containing 119,580 fraud files as well as addresses of 1,926,400 victims”, he said.
Taking to Twitter to react to the arrest, Abike Dabiri, slammed Hushpuppi for committing crime and having the audacity to show off on social media.
She also went further to state that fraud does not represent Nigerians. See what she wrote below;
