Nigerian Instagram celebrity, Raymond Igbalodely, popularly known as Hushpuppi has allegedly been arrested over allegations of fraud.
He was reportedly arrested by interpol in the early hours of Wednesday in the United Arab Emirates, after being nabbed for allegedly diverting coronavirus aid funds to the tune of $35 million.
The Dubai-based Nigerian is famous for posting over the top luxury on social media, as well as posing next to helicopters and supercars.
Last year, he changed his Instagram profile from the famous ‘Billionaire Gucci Master’ to ‘Real Estate Developer’, following the arrest of fellow Instagram and Dubai-based big boy, Mompha, by anti-graft officials.
Prior to Hushpuppi’s arrest, himself and his alleged fraud syndicate were said to have been on the radar of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), for some time now.
While there is yet to be any concrete confirmation of his arrest, it quickly became a hot topic across social media as Nigerians debate over the matter.
Many have also continued to wonder about the real source of Hushpuppi’s wealth.
