Interpol has reportedly arrested popular Nigerian Instagram celebrity Raymond Igbalodely, also known as Hushpuppi.
Hushpuppi was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday at the United Arab Emirates, according to Nigeria’s Daily Mail reports.
He was alleged to have been nabbed after allegedly diverting coronavirus funds up to the tune of $35 million.
The real estate agent and his alleged fraud syndicate were said to have been on the radar of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) for a while now.
However, some Nigerians have expressed their different opinions on the reported arrest of Hushpuppi.
“I’m happy that Hushpuppi has been caught. A lot of young people wanted his levels of questionable wealth, at least, now they know there are consequences,” one @aproko_doctor tweeted.
“Did you think his money was legit? If you do, I have one cream to sell to you that enlarges your penis with one single rub,” another concerned Nigerian added.
Another Twitter user @Tee_Classiquem1 had a different opinion saying, “Everyone wants to drag Hushpuppi because we already paint a narrative in our minds that he’s a fraudster even before this day, the sugar daddy that sleeps with you, do you know his source of income? The chief that you befriend on your street, do you know how he’s making his cash?”
