Hushpuppi told me he is an influencer and he never did anything suspicious around me - Daddy Freeze



Daddy Freeze fires back at critics again
Daddy Freeze has fired back at his critics again, after they took to social media to call him out for dining with Hushpuppi after calling out Pastors.
In the new video he shared, Daddy Freeze recalled how he met the arrested suspected fraudster and how he told him that he's an influencer. He further revealed that Hushpuppi never did anything suspicious when they met as he got calls from international fashion brands during their meeting.
The media personality who insisted that he won't discriminate as Jesus never did the same, added that he would never have hung out with Hushpuppi if he was a known criminal. He also recounted how Hushpuppi never discriminated against him even after his (Daddy Freeze) friends turned against him and unfollowed him on social media platforms after he began speaking up against Pastors.
On mocking Nigerians making an honest living while dining with Hushpuppi, Daddy Freeze stated that his jokes come off that way. He added that it was meant for haters and internet trolls, and not for those making an honest income.

Add us on BBM Pin 55DBCBDA for Updates

The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has faulted Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court for granting a perpetual injunction to a former Governor of Rivers State, Chief Peter Odili, which has scuttled the ex-governor’s prosecution.

Buba’s order has prevented the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and any other government anti-corruption agency from prosecuting or arresting Odili, who was accused of allegedly embezzling about N100bn of Rivers State money during his eight-year tenure as governor.

Sagay further stated that the case could be reopened, adding that measures were being put in place to ensure that such an order was never granted again.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria stated, “What is happening now is unconstitutional; that judgment was unconstitutional. The judge who gave that perpetual injunction did what was unconstitutional.

“In effect, he was saying that the police should not do their work. He was removing the prosecutorial powers of the police and the prosecution in Nigeria.
