"News that renowned fraudster, Hushpuppi reportedly stole over $400,000 from inside a US prison does not surprise me. Once a criminal, always a criminal.
"If there was ever doubt about his fraudulent acts, this confirmation right from inside the prison walls debunks all assumptions. I recall how he insulted me in several videos when I called him out few years ago. The FBI should add a new charge to his case.

"EFCC must go harder after all Yahoo Boys destroying the image of Nigeria. They are worst than Nigerian politicians. The Yahoo Boy industry in Nigeria is like organized mafia. They have influencers that even defend them."
