Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Benin Zonal Office on Thursday July 16, 2020 arrested a 22-year old Computer Science Undergraduate of the University of Port Harcourt, Kenneth Gift, his girl friend, Dandy Spice and mother, Dorah Aninah for suspected internet fraud in Agbor, Delta State.
Their arrest was sequel to a petition from the US Federal Bureau of investigation, FBI, and intelligence by operatives of the Commission.
Items recovered from them at the point of arrest include a 5-bedroom duplex, Mercedes-Benz CA250, Mercedes-Benz C250, Mercedes Benz GLK 350, laptop computers and mobile phones.
The suspects have made useful statements and will be charged to court as soon investigations are complete.
How this particular story keeps shading skin like a snake everytime I come cross it, is even more astonishing than the act of bribery the Chinese are being paraded for. This money was initially said to be a N100 million offered as a bribe to a particular set of Northern State politicians who were meant to over look the fact that the Chinese were illegally mining their mineral resources.
A whole lot of Asian especially Chinese folks will arrive Nigeria, pick a location based on their study of the minerals underneath and live in the land. They start illegally mining the natural resources there and sending the proceed (Either the minerals or the money) back to their Country, employee able bodies Nigerians who will equally help them with maps and locations, and will be made to abide by the “No Tell” rule.
But then will you blame the Nigerians? Let’s switch the roles so you see what I mean. The Nigerian leaders who are suppose to have the interest of the people at heart will equally mine that same land and loot the funds from it. Mostly paying alot less than the Chinese would, but the proceeds go into one person’s family account. The money will never get to the hungry hands of the masses legitimately, or be used for a project to benefit everyone.
And then on the other hand, the Asians especially Chinese will illegally mine that same land, though they won’t be giving the masses that money, they Atleast give jobs to the jobless, enabling them cater for themselves and their families.
So, if you are to put yourself in the shoes of these Nigerians, wouldn’t you rather keep your mouth shut knowing you are working for illegal miners, since you won’t benefit from exposing them.
You get paid and employed by these illegal miners, endure the inhumane treatment from these Chinese/Asians or basically anyone whose skin is lighter than that of the typical blacks (Which is more often than not), be guaranteed an income by a criminal in your country?
This is considered a better option just because the Black leaders of your own skin colour and Country, you at one point in time have trusted and voted in, have been as unreliable, incredibly deceptive,corrupt and looting master minds as their predecessors, and just as corrupt and self centered as their successors will be.
As for this N 50 million mentioned, I bet nobody in this Country will be able to account for it by December 2020. How typical…

If you have yourself some money, use it to your advantage like Hushpuppi did in this case. Invest in your lawyer my dear readers and have some confidence in him.
It is easy for a Pastor who casts out demons from congregants to be possessed by a demon if he is not legit. It is easy for a law enforcement to prevents crime and punishes criminals to be involved in crime if he is not legit. It is equally easy for a man known to be fraudulent, given a position to head an anti crimes commission like the EFCC, to be caught neck deep in his fraud.
After his supposed invitation by DSS to answer some questions surrounding his transparency and dealings, the Chairman of EFCC Ibrahim Magu has now been suspended from his position.
When the Mompha-EFCC case came up, every one waited to hear the side of the story from EFCC concerning his conviction since we still don’t know what he does for a living that is fetching him that much wealth. But instead, EFCC went mute, while Mompha bragged about his innocence and kept on calling out the Commission.
Now that the case of Hushpuppi came up, Nigerians were not so surprised seeing that it was clear he (Hushpuppi) wasn’t making and spending that much money legitimately, but when news broke that he was to be extradited to Nigeria’s EFCC, there was an immediate worry because the case will be subdued and the criminals will regain their freedom in a matter of days. However the end wasn’t so (to the relieve of Nigerians), as the US FBI took charge of the case, giving everyone a hope to expect justice, total investigation and persecution.
We don’t know what exactly the DSS and federal government have been informed of have dug up concerning Mr. Magu, but we know it must be intense because he was arrested and after questioning, has been suspended.
We know EFCC handles local criminals, but we also know that they are not without their layers of corruption. With their head suspended, there is even more corruption entangled in that commission than we initially thought.
When you are trying to savage the little that is left in the tarnished image of a man who was once seen as a symbol of purity and judgement, in case he gets his way out of his current situation as usual, and resumes as the same Boss in judging other people’s corrupt practices when he is infact deeply involved in it himself.
It is clear that the P.A of Magu is trying to secure his job with EFCC seeing that Nigeria is a country of unexplained proceeds, it is however very likely that this too shall pass and Magu will find his way home.
Magu whether invited, arrested, swooped off, or even preciously carried away is said to have been involved in a corrupt practice, where he has properties that are not legitimately gotten and using them to transfer stolen, looted and illegally obtained to foreign accounts.
Something this embarrassing can only come from Nigeria. You constantly punish, arrest and ensure persecution of fraudsters meanwhile you are a fraudster yourself?
I have heard people say when they take their problems to EFCC, they are outrageously charged. Those who are arrested get their money a ND everything else confiscated but them and they dare not ask for them back. Now after all these years, it is clear that this guy’s have amassed wealth that they have come to get use to through getting their fingers stained. Everyday is for the thief but one day for the owner. Hopefully this will not end like other investigation. We know what you people are up to.
They take our money, they ruin the image of the Country, they deceive us and hinder growth of the Country and it Citizens and then disgrace themselves and the position they occupy.
How is something so shamefully done by yet another prominent youth of this Country turned into a political issue? Some you to even start accusing a political party if this, then you must have a evidence. So speak out and be taken seriously. why turn it into this embarrassing Blame game as always? 🤦🏾♀️ Kettle and Pot are fighting, this is disgraceful. it is only a dysfunctional family that starts a blame game when a member has committed a heinous crime.
They seriously go about intimidating people with illegally gotten money from unsuspecting victims. No wonder they spend it as fast as it comes. Peep the video down below to see the way he sprayed money at an occasion. The money was too much his bodyguards had to help him hold the brief case.
While it was speculated that the Dubai Police force was going to extradite the high force internet fraudster Hushpuppi and Co to Nigeria, it is now being beloved that Hushpuppi has infact been extradited to the US
This conclusion came from the fact that The Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now acknowledging and sending praises to the Dubai police force for their accuracy in taking down the team of sophisticated cyber criminals.
Nigerians are now showing mixed concern, because while some are happy that the case will be investigated to it’s last stage when they are extradited to the United States, and not have Nigeria release them if they were infact extradited to Nigeria.
