It will be noted that the Dubai Police Force officially gave details about Hushpuppi and others and how they defrauded over 1.9 millions people.

The DPF revealed that upon the arrest of Hushpuppi and 12 other members of his gang, including Olalekan Ponle, aka Woodberry, they discovered that fraud amounting to 1.6 billion dirham (N168bn) had been perpetrated by the gang.

The Dubai police said the raid, carried out on June 10, 2020, was dubbed: Fox Hunt 2.

Reacting on Thursday evening, Dabiri-Erewa said the crimes perpetrated by Hushpuppi and his abettors dented the image of Nigeria, stressing that the law should take its course.

“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,” she wrote on Twitter.
