There was tension at the US Embassy, Abuja, yesterday, as some protesters demanded a forensic investigation over ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Timi Frank, Dino Melaye and some Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftains link to arrested fraudster, Hushpuppi.
The protesters reported to be members of Concerned Citizens Forum (CCF), held up placards which read, “Say No to fraud, Interpol act now”, “Interpol act and arrest Dino Melaye”, “Show me your friend and I will tell you who you are”, “FBI should investigate Atiku Abubakar.”
The group also submitted a letter to the US Ambassador to Nigeria and the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding for a probe of Hushpuppi’s political allies in the PDP.
They insisted that Atiku Abubakar’s frequent trips to Dubai prior to 2019 presidential elections may not be unconnected to Hushpuppi .
Recall that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had alleged “criminal conspiracy linking the top echelon of the opposition” to Hushpuppi.
According to them, some PDP members may have allegedly helped Hushpuppi launder proceeds of crime.
