Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has reacted to details of Raymond Abass aka Hushpuppi’s arrest.
Eye9ja reports that Abike Dabiri’s reaction comes after the arrest of Hushpuppi and his gang who were alleged to have defrauded over 1.9 million victims, using fake email to people and diverting payments to their account.
Dubai Police say the suspects are part of a ring that has executed a series of scams totaling up to $435.6 million
Dabiri-Erewa, Thursday night on Twitter, stated that the case was damaging to Nigeria.
She, however, insisted that fraud does not reflect the citizens.
