FBI Under Fire For Focusing Tweet On 6 Nigerians Declared Wanted And Not Mentioning Fugitives From Other Countries

FBI
Many Nigerians on social media have condemned the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for focusing its attention solely in its tweet about 6 Nigerians wanted for online scam and not mentioning fugitives from other countries who are also wanted.

The FBI early Saturday shared a tweet announcing that 6 Nigerian fugitives are one their most wanted list for business email compromise scams.

This has triggered angry reactions from many Nigerians on Twitter who have now called out the FBI for racism and not mentioning other scammers and their nationality in the bid to promote a stereotype.

Aggrieved Nigerians also accused the agency of pushing a narrative that only Nigerians are fraudsters, whereas people from other nationalities are also involved.

See some reactions below;

It is alleged that the FBI chose to paint Nigerians are fraudsters due to recent Dubai police operation that led to the arrest of socialite Ramoni Igbalode better known as Hushpuppi alongside other gang members over alleged fraud.

He became a topic of discussion on social media for two consecutive days after the police released a short film detailing how it tracked down Hushpuppi and his crew members.

According to the four-minute film released on June 25, the operation which led to the arrest of 12 fraudsters was for about four months, having defrauded almost 2million people of N168 billion, seizing more N50 billion in cash and 13 luxury cars worth N3.7 billion.
