Layole Oyatogun chatise Nigerians supporting Hushpuppi, A thief is a thief she says


Popular media personality  Layole Oyatogun has lampooned Nigerians who are in the habit of defending fraudsters, asserting that a thief is a thief.

She disclosed on social media that she was a victim of Fraud in faraway China which left her account empty, she also said the bank couldn’t do anything about it.

She warned Nigerian to desist from supporting the international fraudster Hushpuppi, she opined that in matters like this what goes around comes around.

She wrote: I find it appalling and disheartening that in this day and age, people continue to glorify and justify cyber fraud(yahoo-yahoo). Where did our morals flee to? How did we get to this level of moral decadence? It is so mind-boggling reading the barrage of comments in the wake of the recent arrest, people chastising him for not keeping a low profile and also defending his cyber crimes. Really? A Thief is a Thief whether high or low profile.

The consequences of cyber fraud on people are enormous. Victims have lost their lives and livelihood, because of the atrocities of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes. It has put a smear on the image of hardworking Nigerians with legit businesses and careers.

I have been a victim of cybercrime, I was at home in Lagos Nigeria when my bank account was hacked in faraway China and my money withdrawn. It was a very sad time for me. The bank did nothing. My savings, sweat and hard work gone because of someone’s insatiable greed for easy money and life. Cyber fraud is not something I wish on anybody but for the Nigerians glorifying and justifying yahoo-yahoo, “what goes round comes round.
