The police authorities in Dubai have shared footage of how Hushpuppi, a Nigerian Instagram poser, was arrested and taken away in handcuffs in a special operation on allegations of cyber-fraud involving huge money.
Hushpuppi, whose real name is Raymond Igbalode, was arrested on June 10, alongside his gang of 11 other Nigerians, including Olalekan Ponle, better known as Woodbery.
Hushpuppi and Mr Woodbery’s Instagram display of luxury and fame made it easy for Dubai Police to arrest them for Fraud.
The suspects were arrested for crimes committed outside the United Arab Emirates (UAE), including money laundering, cyber fraud, hacking, impersonation, scamming individuals, banking fraud and identity theft to the sum of Dh1.6 billion (an estimated N168 billion).
