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.
With the news of Hushpuppi’s arrest, many have slammed Daddy Freeze for embracing a fraudster while always attacking pastors.
Recall that Daddy Freeze had travelled to meet Hushpuppi in Dubai, a meeting which sold Hushpuppi to Nigerians as a legitimate businessman.
Daddy Freeze has however defended himself by quoting Mark 2:15 where Jesus dined with “sinners”. He added that Nigerians are funny people and he is glad that he is not accountable to anyone except his master.
On being a hypocrite, he stated that he uses the scripture to point fingers at Nigerian Pastors while they can’t do same to him.
