Human rights activist and politician, Deji Adeyanju has pleaded with the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to investigate alleged fraudster and self-acclaimed Gucci ambassador, Hushpuppi.
Adeyanju made this appeal in a series of posts on Twitter.
In the tweets, Adeyanju spoke against the epidemic which seems to be encouraged by those who worship ‘wealth’ regardless of the source.
He also commended the EFCC over the arrest of internet fraudsters in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
In his posts, he condemned “yahoo” boys who make a living off defrauding gullible foreigners and waste the ill-gotten money on frivolities.
He also used the opportunity to recommend Dubai-based Nigerian social media personality, Hushpuppi for investigation and subsequent arrest.
His tweets read:
“We all go to clubs and see the nonsense those Yahoo Boys do. They buy Champagne running into millions of Naira and they pour on wrist watches, etc. No one who works hard for money including Dangote will do some of those things. EFCC has done very well on this. I commend them.
“EFCC should go to more clubs to arrest more Yahoo boys. I support this line of action. From Quilox to Cubana and all, arrest them all. Only the guilty will run if EFCC comes to make an arrest in a club. Imagine EFCC meeting me in a club, they will even greet me good evening sir.
“You can imagine people criticizing EFCC for raiding the Night Club. I even hear most of these clubs pay Police and EFCC off because they don’t want to be raided because when the raids happen, it’s BAD MARKET for the clubs. God.
“I want to commend EFCC for this good job. More work needs to be done in this regard. There are more yahoo boys in Abuja. And another reminder. There’s this guy called Hush Puppy or something like that. Look into it.”
Hushpuppi is one of the richest Nigerian youths on social media without any clear source of income.
