- The EFCC and other sister agencies have been called upon by the APC to investigate some top PDP chieftains who have been allegedly linked to Hushpuppi
- Hushpuppi was arrested recently in Dubai and is currently facing criminal charges on cyber-enabled fraud in the United States of America
- The ruling party said people like Atiku Abubabar, Bukola Saraki, Yakubu Dogara and Dino Melaye
- This did not go down well with Nigerians as they came out in their numbers to accuse the APC of being as corrupt as the PDP
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on anti-graft agencies to investigate the link between some notable leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Ramon Olorunwa Abbas popularly known as “Hushpuppi” who was recently arrested for fraud.
Hushpuppi, Woodberry and some crew members were nabbed in an operation tagged Fox Hunt 2 by security operatives in Dubai.
The APC deputy national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, in a statement on Saturday, July 4, said reports of the criminal conspiracy linking some PDP bigwigs with Hushpuppi should be a matter of serious interest to relevant authorities in Nigeria.
The party said it was aware that the Economic and Finacial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has already declared Hushpuppi wanted over fraud allegations.
Nabena, however, said the EFCC, Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) and other sister agencies must investigate PDP chieftains like former vice president Atiku Abukar, former Senate president Bukola Saraki, former House speaker Yakubu Dogara and Dino Melaye.
According to the ruling party, the PDP leadership turned Dubai into their meeting place ahead of the 2019 general elections in Nigeria, saying it is not a mere coincidence.
It added that Hushpuppi was at different times photographed in Dubai meeting with these PDP chieftains.
Some Nigerians have also called on anti-graft agencies to beam their searchlight on the APC and its members as they are also corrupt.
Erhaghewu Ikponmwosa in response to APC said: "The same way criminal conspiracy linking Pastor Ize-Iyamu and APC should be investigated. What about bullion van conspiracy. Please don’t throw stone when living in a glasshouse."
Replying to APC's tweet, @demmyclouds said criminal conspiracy linking Mompha with APC should equally be investigated. He shared a photo of Mompha with Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state.
Recall that the EFCC filed a 14-count charge bordering on alleged fraud and money laundering against the Bureau De Change boss whose real name is Ismalia Mustapha.

@sammax018 is of the opinion that all PC members should be jailed.
Hushpuppi was recently arrested along with some of his associates in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and extradited to the United States of America to face trial over cyber-enabled fraud and Business Email Compromise (BEC).
