HUSHPUPPI: FRAUD DOES NOT REPRESENT WHO WE ARE AS NIGERIANS - ABIKE DABIRI-EREWA

The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has condemned the fraudulent acts of some Nigerians, described them as dents on the prestigious images of other innocent Nigerians. 


The NIDCOM boss questioned the audacity of Ramon Abass, popularly known as HushPuppi for committing crimes and still show off. 


HushPuppi, the Instagram celebrity,on June 10, 2020 was arrested by the Dubai Police Force in the United Arab Emirates for flaunting his wealth on Instagram. 


After thorough investigation, it was revealed that the "celebrity" is a fraudster, which led to his arrest and 12 other members of his gang, including Olalekan Ponle, aka Woodberry. 


The gang was reported to have defrauded innocent persons of money amounting to 1.6 billion dirham (N168bn).


Dabiri-Erewa, while reacting to this, said “Committing a crime and still having the audacity to show off. Ramoni Igbalode aka Hushpuppi. This is really denting to our image as a people, but like I always say, fraud does not represent who we are as Nigerians. Hardworking. dedicated, committed.


Whether your name is Ramoni Igbalode or Invictus Obi, crime is crime. The law must take its course. To those countries, another Nigerian has committed a crime. While we will call out those who soil our image, we will always celebrate the millions of Nigerians making us proud."
