A former Kogi Senator, Dino Melaye has reacted to the call for an investigation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) into his alleged links with alleged fraudster, Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi.
The Deputy National Spokesperson of the APC, Yekini Nabena, in a statement, had called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and other security agencies to investigate the links between Hushpuppi and some stalwarts in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
The statement read in part: ”We note that the EFCC has already declared the arraigned Instagram celebrity wanted over fraud allegations. However, the EFCC, Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) and other sister agencies must investigate money laundering reports linking some PDP leaders and financiers to the Dubai-based international criminal ring.
“PDP leadership turned Dubai into their “Strategic” meeting place ahead of the 2019 general elections in Nigeria and “Hushpuppi’s” affinity with the PDP leadership is not mere coincidence.
“At different times, “Hushpuppi” was been photographed in Dubai meeting with the PDP’s 2019 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, former Senate Preident Yakubu Dogara, Dino Melaye and other PDP stalwarts”Nabena said in his statement.”
Responding to the statement via his Instagram Page, Melaye said he would not dignify APC with a response.
”I will not glorify a religiously lunatic character nor the caretaker party(APC) with a response on Hushpuppy. SDM,” he wrote.
