Read some of the tweets:
@MrLaja “How else can u affect over 1.9 million people negatively? U must be either one of 2 people… Idi Amin or the Devil Incarnate 👿. Sadly a human can be both. This Ramon is the one. #Hushpuppi #HushpuppiArrest
@Ifeanyianeke “Just imagine if a pastor had gone to #Hushpuppi’s house to eat Rice and Stew, and mock poor people, Daddy Freeze would have dragged his destiny from morning to night market. #HushpuppiArrest
@ismailaniemu “#HushpuppiArrest : @NgComCommission @PoliceNG @cenbank have not done enough to reduce cyber crime rate in Nigeria. Scammers use registered phone lines to advertise criminal enterprises,give out bank account details for payments and are sure of not being pinned down for fraud.
@mordigorod “As Nigerians make narratives on #HushpuppiArrest, most especially Lagosians fail to understand Asiwaju Tinubu is worst than Hushpuppi
Tinubu, is the evil, even Allah will not show mercy or forgiveness upon even on Earth talkmore of the other World.
2023, is fast approaching.
@desmond_omoluru “I hope everyone now see how fake social media is. All that glitters are not gold. Hushpuppi defrauded 1.9million people for over 170billion niara. Make genuine wealth and have peace of mind.
