Inside sources close to the Nigerian government disclosed that Nigerian social media commentator and socialite, Ray Hushpuppi will be arrested and prosecuted for cursing and lambasting the government and the members of the House of Representatives for processing the approval of a $5.5 billion loan.
The vocal social was reported to have posted online thus: “This time I’m not even going to blame or focus my strength or time on dumb Buhari, this time it’s to all the Reps and senators who will approve this loan again after a recent one was just approved and we don’t know where it went. Any of you reps and senators that will vote for this loan to be approved should know it will not be well with you and your generations, as you all plan to help the future nigerian kids in poverty before even being born, your own children will suffer before your eyes. Bastard people wey e no go better for all of una together”
Hushpuppi’s words came at the heel of a letter read by Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, at the plenary on Thursday, May 28 where Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is seeking the House of Representatives’ approval for a loan of $5.5 billion (about two trillion Naira).
Femi Gbajabiamila, the speaker, during the plenary session said the federal government wants to use the funds for the federal government’s priority projects and to support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A social media user had advised the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest Hushpuppi and his internet gang that were hyped in a 9ice Song ‘Living Things’. The commission claimed it will need a petition to initiate a probe against Ray Hushpuppi, Investor BJ, Baddy Osha, Opa6, Bayo Otunola and others who were mentioned in the song titled ‘Living Things’ by hip hop artiste, Abolore Akande aka 9ice.
