The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) Abike Dabiri-Erewa, reacted to the arrestof Instagram celebrity, Raymond Abass popularly Known as Hushpuppi.
According to her, the arrest has dented the image of Nigeria as a whole.
Dabiri-Erewa who reacted to the arrest on Twitter on Thursday night said that the arrest of the Hushpuppi and his gang for allegedly defrauding over 1.9 million victims was damaging to Nigeria but insisted that fraud does not reflect the citizens.
She wrote thus on Twitter; “Committing 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 full course!! To those countries, another Nigerian arrested, is what they will say.”
