Hushpuppi Arrest: Huddah Monroe slams small yahoo boys afraid of social media

In reaction to Hushpuppi’s arrest, Kenyan socialite, Huddah Monroe has slammed small yahoo boys (internet fraudsters) who are now afraid of social media. Dubai Police yesterday confirmed that they recently arrested Raymond Igbalode Abbas, also known as “Hushpuppi” and Olalekan Jacob Ponle aka “Woodberry” along with 10 African cybercriminals in a special operation dubbed “Fox Hunt 2”. Lt. General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, the Commander-in-chief of Dubai Police, said the arrest of ‘Hushpuppi’, ‘Woodberry’ and ten gang members involved in money laundry and cyber fraud activities, is another achievement added to the proud record of Dubai police in ensuring the emirate’s security and safety as well as preserving people’s money and property.

The director of Dubai CID said the raid resulted in confiscating incriminating documents of a planned fraud on a global scale worth AED 1.6 billion ($ 435 million). “The team also seized more than Dhs150 million ($40.9 million) in cash, 13 luxury cars with an estimated value of Dhs25 million ($6.8 million) obtained from fraud crimes, and confiscated 21 computer devices, 47 smartphones, 15 memory sticks, five hard disks containing 119,580 fraud files as well as addresses of 1,926,400 victims”, he said.

Huddah Monroe has now slammed small fraudsters who are hiding after the confirmation of the arrest of Hushpuppi.

According to her, such boys should come out of their hiding because nobody is after their kind. She wrote; “Hate to see small boys hiding from social media. Y’all errand boys need to calm your skinny chest and continue hunting girls for big boys cos nobody is arresting a broke man. They only arrest big boys. It has to be a Christmas, not iTune gift cards. “If they arrest small boys, you won’t hear it on news. It’s not news worthy. “LMAO. Y’all a bunch of clowns. I see through your DMs. You only survive on others like leeches. Nobody is arresting a leech or errand boy. Chill, go outside, do some sit ups to broaden your chest. Who are you hiding from? “If errand boys hide, who will get us plantain from Sharjah? Come outside ooo”.
