A suspected Nigerian internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi, has said his “story” should inspire and give hope to Nigerians who are “suffering” because of widespread hunger and poverty.
Mr. Abbas made the assertion in a video that surfaced on social media after he was arrested recently in Dubai and extradited to the U.S to face criminal charges for allegedly using the Internet to steal millions of dollars from people and institutions around the world.
The 37-year-old Nigerian who was a resident in Dubai was known for living an extravagant lifestyle and flaunting it on social media.
“Una suppose to use my story do documentary to give people hope,” Mr. Abbas said in the video.
“But una feel say people no deserve hope, na suffer they must dey use to. Una believe say na wetin I deserve na to suffer.”
Mr. Abbas spoke in Pidgin English in the five-minute video.
He said many Nigerians were living under the crushing effect of poverty because of bad government in the country.
He said his mum hails from Nigeria’s Niger Delta region, but that she has never benefited from the huge money made from the oil exploitation in the region.
“What about people in Badagry, people in Agege, enjoyment reach their side?
