Share

Suspected internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi has been said to have links with Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) chieftains, as alleged by the Progressives Congress(APC) ,hence challenging relevant authorities to investigate possible links.

Just last week,Hushpuppi was extradited to America by Dubai Police for alleged cyber fraud and money-laundering charges.

In a statement by APC,its spokesman, Yekeen Nabena, mentioned some of the PDP chieftains seen with the Dubai-based Hushpuppi as former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; former Senate President Bukola Saraki; former Speaker Yakubu Dogara; Senator Dino Melaye and others.

In view of his money-laundering charges, it wondered if the detained Instagram celebrity had anything to do with the multiple strategic meetings of the PDP in Dubai .

The APC said: “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 leadup 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.”
