Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the news of Nigerian fraudster, Raymond Igbalode Abbas popularly known as Hushpuppi being extradited to the United States alongside his close associate, Olalekan Jacob Ponle also known as Woodberry over high-level fraud, money-laundering, and cyber-crimes.
They were arrested in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in June, along with ten African cybercriminals in a special operation dubbed “Fox Hunt 2”.
The official page of Dubai Police confirmed their extradition on its official page after the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI’s Director, Christopher Wray, thanked the Dubai Police for working towards extradition of the suspected cybercriminals.
Nigerians have started reacting to the news of Hushpuppi and associates who were wanted for fraud in Europe, the US, and Nigeria.

All drug Lords in South-America fear the golden phrase called "Extradition to the U.S"
From El-Chapo, to the Cali cartel to even Pablo Escobar.
They feared extradition because that was the end. No escape…your fate was sealed.
This fate just fell on Hushpuppi.

Dubai police handed Hushpuppi & Woodberry to FBI in the US. GOOD NEWS but to hell with dubai & US. They're still the biggest criminals in the world. The weapons and the terrorism organizations they created by stealing and destabilize countries are still there

What if FBI makes Hushpuppi and Woodberry an offer to become part of their cyber crime unit, in return they get a new identity? 🤔
