APC calls for investigation of criminal conspiracy linking “Hushpuppi” with PDP leadership


The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday called for investigation of criminal conspiracy linking Olorunwa Abbas also known as “Ray Hushpuppi” with the leadership of  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)

The reports of the criminal conspiracy linking the top echelon of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with Ramon Olorunwa Abbas also known as “Ray Hushpuppi” who was recently arrested along with associate(s) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and extradited to the United States of America to face trial over cyber-enabled fraud and Business Email Compromise (BEC) schemes should be a matter of serious interest to relevant authorities in Nigeria.

The APC in a statement by Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, noted that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had already declared the arraigned Instagram celebrity wanted over fraud allegations.

The party said the EFCC, Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) and other sister agencies must investigate money laundering reports linking some PDP leaders and financiers to the Dubai-based international criminal ring.

The APC further stated that the PDP leadership turned Dubai into their “Strategic” meeting place ahead of the 2019 general elections in Nigeria and “Hushpuppi’s” affinity with the PDP leadership is not mere coincidence.

“At different times, ‘Hushpuppi’ was photographed in Dubai meeting with the PDP’s 2019 presidential candidate, Alh. Atiku Abubakar; former Senate President, Bukola Saraki; former Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; Senator Dino Melaye among other PDP stalwarts.

“While relevant authorities investigate the nature of their relationship and business partnership, we also challenge the PDP leadership to do same by opening up on the nature of the relationship, particularly the kind of services the arrested ‘Hushpuppi’ provided them.

“In the lead-up to the Edo and Ondo governorship elections, we renew our call against monetised elections and vote buying schemes which the PDP has serially deployed in elections.

“We call on relevant authorities to up their guard to prevent these practices that threaten the sanctity of our elections.

“The people’s will and votes should determine elections, not illicit money used to buy votes,” the APC said.
