The acting chairman of the anti-graft agency, EFCC, has reacted to the arrest of Instagram celebrity, Ramon Igbalode popularly known as Hushpuppi.
Hushpuppi was on Wednesday June 10 arrested in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) alongside his colleagues by International Police (INTERPOL) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for alleged fraud.
In an interview with TVC, Magu said the commission is not involved in Hushpuppi’s arrest.
“We are yet to be involved in the case of Hushpuppi, but if they happen to give us this thing (details) we would assist.” Magu said
The antigraft agency boss in the interview denied the allegation that the agency is mostly interested in the arrest and prosecution of internet fraudsters. He said the Commission also rehabilitates the suspects arrested for internet fraud.
“We are not all about arresting, prosecuting and chasing of internet fraudsters, and taking away the proceeds of their crime, but we are also trying to see wether we can rehabilitate them. Because most of this boys are either undergraduate or graduate from higher institutions, so they can be better people to our country.
The menace of Yahoo boys is also a course of concern, we are collaborating with other law enforcement agencies.
Yahoo boys have an association with their mothers who do not feel what their children are doing is a crime actually. It is called the “Yahoo Yahoo Mothers Association, a suitation where the mother would go abroad and the child would stay there and help them syphon funds from credit card fraud.
So we are doing everything possible to arrest the situation” he said
