Nigerians on Twitter and other social media platforms are currently reacting to the unconfirmed arrest of Dubai-based flamboyant Nigerian, Ray Hushpuppi, a suspected ‘Yahoo Yahoo Big boy’ who claims to be a real estate developer.
Reports say Hushpuppi and his colleagues were arrested in Dubai by International Police (Interpol) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over alleged fraud.
They were allegedly involved in fraud and money laundering of over $100million which was supposed to be given to Native Americans during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
NRM has contacted Interpol UAE for confirmation of the arrest. It is still awaiting a response.
The young socialite and Instagram big boy had late last year changed his Instagram profile from the famous ‘the Billionaire Gucci master’ to ‘real estate developer’, following the arrest of fellow Instagram and Dubai based big boy, Mompha, by officials of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission.
However, Nigerians have started reacting to the news with some Nigerians saying Hushpuppi’s arrest will not come as a surprise with the way he was spending money lavishly and showing off, with source of income questionable.
