According to Ms Olunloyo, Hushpuppi confessed that many of the accounts are owned by Nigerians residing in the country. She who noted that the IG big boy is guilty of the crime leveled against him, subtly gave a note of warning to people who are praising him.
Citing an instance, the controversial journalist quizzed how people will feel if they work hard and someone withdrew all their hard earned money within a twinkle of an eye.
“HushPuppi has admitted to hacking Canadian bank accounts. Many with Nigerian names. Keep praising him. When you work hard for your dollars then wake up and see it all disappear when you were tricked to a BEC compromise.”
