Following Hushpuppi’s arrest, some Nigerians have taken to social media to lampoon controversial OAP, Daddy Freeze for supporting international fraudster Hushpuppi who was recently arrested for fraud in Dubai.
Freeze is very vocal when it comes to lashing out on Pastors, but is so silent on the arrest of a fraudster.
Dubai Police yesterday confirmed that they recently arrested Raymond Igbalode Abbas, aka “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.
Prior to Huspuppi’s arrest, Daddy Freeze had traveled to meet him in Dubai, a meeting which sold Hushpuppi to Nigerians as a legitimate businessman.
