She also cautioned Nigerians against committing crime and flaunting it like alleged cybercriminal, Hushpuppi did on Instagram.

She said; “Committing crime and still having the audacity to show off like Ramon Igbalode aka Hushpuppi. This is really denting our image as a people.

“But like I always say, fraud does not represent who we are as Nigerians; hardworking, dedication and commitment is what we, as a country are known for,” Dabiri-Erewa added.
