The police in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, have seized Dh150m — N16bn — in cash and more than a dozen luxury cars from Nigerian Instagram celebrity, Raymond Abbas known as Hushpuppi.
In a video shared by the police, officers explained how they arrested Hushpuppi and his gangs, who are accused of Internet scam.
Hushpuppi’s principal scam was to create websites that looked identical to well-known companies and banks, it was alleged.
A total of 1,926,400 victims were said to have been targeted by the syndicate in a scheme that spanned several months.
13 luxury cars estimated to be worth over 25 million dirhams — N2.6bn — were also seized from the gang.
