‘I Come From A Family Of Generational Poverty’- Hushpuppi On Why He Became A Fraudster
A throwback video of Hushpuppi explaining why he ventured into cybercrime has surfaced online. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had described him as Nigeria’s most wanted hacker prior to his arrest last week.
He was arrested on Wednesday, June 10 by the INTERPOL in the United Arab Emirates, and stated that EFCC is engaging with the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
On Thursday, the Dubai police released an exclusive video of how Hushpuppi was arrested together with his accomplices in his Dubai base. It emerged he and his gang have defrauded Over 1.9 Million people with millions of dollars.
In this video, Hushpuppi is seen revealing why he got himself in cyber fraud, albeit subtly as he revealed that in his entire family lineage, he is the only person who has escaped poverty. Evidently, poverty drove him to make living by hacking and stealing from people electronically but unfortunately, his cup got full recently
