Nigeria’s crime-fighting agency, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has declared Hushpuppi “Nigeria’s most-wanted hacker”.
According to the agency, Hushpuppi has a case to answer with them. Dele Oyewale, the spokesperson of the EFCC said this.
Furthermore, it noted that they are working towards identifying victims of Hushpuppi’s illegal deals.
The statement reads; “The Commission is engaging with the FBI in tracing the victims of his fraudulent transactions and other fraudsters having direct involvement with him.
“Local cybercriminals with money laundering networks with him, are also being investigated,” he said.
The Dubai based Instagram big boy was reportedly arrested on the 10th of June, 2020. He is still being held in Dubai.
